Minocqua Area and Northern Wisconsin

Welcome to the Minocqua Area - Nature's Original Water Park. We call it that because it's located in the middle of Northern Wisconsin's Lake Country. Here there are thousands of lakes, rivers and streams that literally saturate the geography. And vacationers have long been visiting the Minocqua Area to enjoy all this water by boating, swimming, fishing, snowmobiling and more. There's no admission fees and we're open year round!

Fishing Reports

Fishing, not catching, is what it's called. The weather over the past five days has been brutal for August. High winds, rain, cold front after cold front have greeted us on a daily basis. And the weatherman has no idea what the weather is suppose to be. I wish I could get paid for being that wrong all the time! Funny thing tho, out of the last five days the only day that the fish weren't really biting was the nice day that was sunny and in the 80's. Go figure.

Bluegills, and I mean big bluegills, have been active. More than once we have put 20-30 of those tasty devils in the boat. Waxies combined with Gulp waxies have worked the best and the color of the jig does matter. Fun to catch and great to eat. Great combination. Crappie too have been turning on as of late. One day the number one bait for them was crawlers, a half of one. Small micro minnows, twister tails and minnows have also worked.

Musky have started to get more active. Bulldogs worked in deeper water and bucktails in shallow water are producing. Don't be afraid to drag that sucker behind the boat to really improve your catch rate on those big girls.

Walleyes have been incredibly picky and lethargic lately. They seem to be biting very lite and taking forever to ingest the bait. Crawlers and leeches are still the best while minnows can work too. You can catch them but patience is needed.

Haven't caught too many perch lately and the cold has slowed the bass as well but there are still rogue ones to be had while fishing for other species.

Well I'll be braving the winds and cold with clients over the next couple of days and we'll see what happens. Check the FB page for all the photos from last week and the new ones we'll be posting for this week. Thanks again for your support!
