Default Wisconsin Smallmouth

Going up to WI for a week, going on a guided smallmouth trip one day but then on my own rest of the week.. any of you fished up there? Staying on Lake Minocqua Sep 22-29th, pulling my boat up there. Any advice would be appreciated, seems like there's a thousand lakes in the area.

Yes, there are a thousand lakes in the area. I travel to Rhinelander and Tomahawk for work quire a bit and the guys at our manufacturing facility all hunt, fish and trap around there and always talk about the great fishing.

What are people fishing for late September? Are the smallmouth still biting? I'm primarily a smallmouth fisherman, it's about the only thing I fish for but I'd like to catch a nice musky while I'm up there. I'm staying on Lake Minocqua the whole week, I plan on fishing there mostly but would like to branch out to some other lakes in the area.

Thanks! Neither of those cities are far from Minocqua so I might have to check them out.

They always bite. It will be cold. Leech patterns work very well. Black jig and black mister twister casted and let it hit the bottom. Reel and jig it bouncing off the bottom. Thatís my go to. J9 Rapalas work very well. Use a steel leader because puke and musky are always hungry.

Get a topraider and a double cowgirl for musky.

Also I dont really see a need to branch off unless you want to fish some really nice native brook trout. That would be near Presque Isle.

Thanks for the advice, I'm a jig fisherman so it'll be right up my alley. Hopefully I can catch some nice fish.
