TIME TO FISH
 
After a long awaited period the ice has finally cleared from the Quiet Lakes.  This is the latest time in history that the ice has gone out.  Hard to believe that on opening day (May 4th) that people were still ice fishing.  Time to get in the boats and enjoy the great fishing opportunities in the Quiet Lakes area. Good luck and good angling.
 
 
 

Summer is the quintessential Northwoods fishing seasons for many anglers. Panfishing gets increasingly better as the year progresses. Muskies become active shortly after their spawn in late spring. Early in the season, target areas just off prominent points and mid-lake humps adjacent to deeper water and fish smaller baits. As the summer progresses, increase the speed of your retrieves and the size of your baits.

Your chances of locating walleyes are greatly increased when you keep an eye on weather conditions, water temperatures and light conditions. Walleye tend to be shallower in low-light periods—such as sunrise, sunset and under cloudy skies—and move deeper during the day. Target mid-lake humps and deep weedlines.

As the days grow shorter towards fall, many of the "Quiet Lakes" fish species increase their feeding—which makes for great angling. Fall is the best time of year for catching a trophy musky in the "Quiet Lakes", with really tremendous-sized fish being caught right up until the lakes freeze over. Walleye action often increases as well, as does smallmouth fishing in the early part of fall.

  

Lisa and Austin Hatfield are two happy anglers.  Both fish were caught on crappie poles.  Lisa is holding a 32 inch northern pike and Austin a 36 inch musky
