I would love to make a trip out to Haward WI for a week or so next year. I feel intimadated though as I have never fished outside gool ol' Minnesota. I would like to be on a lake that is good for pike and musky both. Any suggestions? Also does WI have lake reports like the DNR? I have not been able to find them.

I have a nice spot for you. I have a buddy that owns three cabins in the Hayward area, near Winter, WI. Musky Mystique Resort is located on Blaisdell Lake, in the east fork of the Chippewa River. It's right next to next to the Old Honeyhole!(Great for Musky, pike, and smallies.)
http://www.muskymystique.com/

Clint "Plink" Peterson is the owner and he holds a couple records for musky also, so he knows his stuff. Plink is a Division III Musky Hall of Fame World Record Holder in both the "catch" and the "release" categories.

You can get the cabin pretty cheap for a week with a boat, up to 4 guys. Very nice cabins!

He also makes Plink Custom knives which are some of the best hunting and fillet knives I've ever used.

Tell him Rob Gross, "Reggie's boy" sent you.

Good Luck!

I should also mention there is some great animals in the area. Some Deer come up to the cabin every night. An eagle swoops in to take fish of the dock, and last time I was there, we had a 6 foot black bear come by the cabin to say hi. Scared my old man pretty good... Made the rest of us laugh pretty hard. My father actually screamed. laugh smiley Kinda like in The Great Outdoors..."Big Big Bear...Big Big Bear...

Hey Pike Lover,

A lot depends on what you are looking for specifically in terms of the muskie in my opinion. For PURE NUMBERS nothing in the area will beat Moose or Tiger Cat flowage. Several ski's a day is a real probability but they will be on the smaller size. For numbers and an outside chance at a big girl it would be hard to beat Ghost, Lost Land, and Teal lakes. Although it can be intimidating to those who haven't fished it the Chippewa Flowage offers probably the best combination of possibilities for trophy pike and muskies in one fishery. The pike there have gone bonkers the last few years. I personally prefer the side of the lake that the Chippewa river enters on. The smallmouth are an excellent added bonus in that area.

If you are planning to be there during the general time frame of the opener, Labor day weekend for muskies in Wisconsin, then it would be very hard to beat the tailwaters and first mile or so of water below the dam in Winter. Yattering Jack gave you a good reference in that area.

There are lots of resorts/fish camps on The Chip... just depends on what comfort level you want to be at and what amount of cash you want to lay down. I personally have found that Musky Tale Resort http://www.muskytale.com/ fit a mid range for me of price, comfort, as well as fishing help and knowledge from the ownership. Deerfoot Lodge is another place I am familiar with that is well positioned on the Chip and is probably a step up in facilities. http://www.deerfootlodge.com/ It is also equipped with boat rentals. Their website quotes lodging rates and boat rental rates. However, there are many good ones. If you are interested in speeding up the learning curve Ty Sennett is a great guide on the Chip...and some surrounding waters. http://www.tysennett.com/ He is often booked in advance..but for good reason. He has a message board online for the Chip and other area waters as well. You might also want to take a look at the Hayward area Guides Association. There are maybe 25 or so of the best multi species guides in the area that are part of the association. You could pick a person with the expertise and knowledge for the lake and species you are wanting to target. They are at http://www.haywardguides.com/


Well, maybe that will give you a few additional ideas to look at.

Good Fishing,

Jason "The Fisher" Pence
