Musky and northern hitting; all in and amidst the lakes and the Wisconsin River in Wisconsin’s Marathon and Lincoln Counties (near Mosinee and Wausau).
The fall musky bite in the central Wisconsin area is right now and big fish are being caught by anglers running large suckers run under bobbers and by guys throwing large jerkbaits like Suicks and Mantas. Most of the action is in 8 to 14 feet of water but a few fish have been caught suspended over very deep water up to 30 feet deep.
Walleyes in the central Wisconsin area have been very active and nice catches are being made by anglers working the deeper pockets in the river and sharp drop-offs in the lake. Most of the walleyes are in at least 10 to 12 feet of water with some even deeper. A slow presentation using jigs tipped with large fathead minnows has been the best means for targeting these walleyes.
