Re: Living the dream

Wow Steve, I'd like to see a picture of your 62-inch pike. I'm not sure I've ever seen one that big. Many anglers took to the ice for the first time this past weekend. I had 6-inches where I was fishing on Lake Alice - both in shallow and in deeper water along the channel. I recommend people still u...

Re: Living the dream

If anyone would like to know current ice conditions on individual lakes in the Tomahawk area, let me know and I'll try to get you an update. Lake Mohawksin in Tomahawk finally froze completely over last night. Lake Alice has been froze over for some time and, while I haven't actually checked it, I u...

Re: Living the dream

Thanks ToddC. It looks like that will be my last musky this year. I had to chip the boat out of the lake yesterday, so my season is officially over. In total, I ended the year with six 40+ fish and several 30 inch muskies. Not too bad for my first serious year of musky hunting. I have to thank Tomah...

Re: Living the dream

Well, the ice fishing season is now officially underway across the Northwoods as windless bays are covered with a couple inches of ice. Anglers were fishing at Bradley Park in Tomahawk, and others have been reported venturing out on other secluded bays. On an ice checking trip yesterday, neither Big...

Re: Living the dream

My musky fishing updates are on the verge of becoming ice fishing reports, since the ice shelves on Lake Alice are growing more and more each day (though the ice is still by no means safe to walk on up here.) On Saturday I landed a 42-inch football-shaped hog using a brown/orange Uptown Dog. I caugh...

Re: Living the dream

For me, this past week's musky bite was pretty low key. However, one dedicated musky prowler I know hooked into and lost a monster of a fish out on Lake Mohawksin. I know it must have been a big fish, since he doesn't bat an eye at anything under 50 inches. After a few evenings of fishing out on Lak...

Re: Living the dream

With the snow flying outside, I can't help but think about the upcoming ice fishing season. I've had some ice in my bait bucket but have yet to see any forming on the bay in front of my house. I'll be posting ice updates as soon as it forms. The musky bite appears to be back in full swing after the ...

Re: Living the dream

ToddC, I think we both were fortunate to be out on the water on one of those legendary days that don't come around very often. Congrats on breaking the 50-inch mark! I imagine that got your musky fever going. The warmer weather seems to have cooled off the musky bite lately. No new fish to report on...

Muskymom, great to know your monster musky is still swimming in Lake Mohawksin. Good luck the rest of this fall and keep us posted if you get another essox. ToddC, it sounds like you and I had the same luck last weekend. Saturday was amazing, and it has gone down hill ever since. I got a small musky...

Re: Living the dream

ToddC, I released my first musky with the quick strike rig last Sunday and it worked pretty well. Thanks for the tip. I'll be out on Lake Alice all weekend, so I'll make sure I keep an eye out and say hi if I see you. Speaking of keeping an eye out, watch for the 47 1/2 inch musky that was taken out...

Re: Living the dream

The first musky was amazing and the second blew my mind. I couldn't have imagined a better evening on Lake Alice than the one I experienced last night. The lake was calm, the boat traffic was light and the fish were feeding - big time. Following the Packer's fifth victory, I headed out to cast some ...

My thoughts are with the residents of Crandon as the community now enters the healing stage. I would have been at the cabin on Lake Metonga on Sunday had I not went to visit family in Algoma. I wish all my friends there the best. Keep the the young who lost their lives in your hearts as you move for...

I'll keep you posted on the Lake Alice bite, as well as other bodies of water in the area, until next summer. Sunny, A...

Re: Living the dream

Not too bad for my first time musky fishing on Lake Alice last night. The water was calm after the evening rain, so I decided to head out in my row boat and flip a top raider before darkness fell. Earlier, I had stopped by Chuck's to pick up some supplies and decided to grab a couple musky suckers. ...

Re: Living the dream

ToddC, Thanks for your insight on moon phases and weather fronts. When faced with fishing after a cold front, say opening weekend or when friends are visiting, I normally try to stay pretty broad with the species I intend to catch. I'll normally start off by fishing for game fish, but I don't hesita...

Re: Living the dream

Ah yes. I see Fishing Unlimited stocked Lake Alice with 6,000 channel catfish a few years back, which means by now those fish would be pretty big. I'll have to throw a gob of worms off the dock this weekend and see if I can't come across one of those nighttime prowlers. Fishing before the storm last...

Mullin17, I haven't done it yet, but your post may have just pushed me over the edge. I've been talking about going catfishing this entire summer and have yet to do so.

Re: Living the dream

Kingrdlk,
Four muskies off your dock sounds like a pretty good deal. Just wondering if any of those fish looked like the alligators you've seen?
Tuesday night I saw several suckers come to the surface while I was fishing. The next few days might be the time to get number five.

Re: Living the dream

If the weather stays as is, I might be giving an ice update in the very near future - I heard it was snowing just north of Minocqua this morning.
