Great action for panfish, walleye and northern; in and amidst the lakes and the Wisconsin River in Wisconsin’s Marathon and Lincoln Counties (near Mosinee and Wausau).
It’s important to note that unlike many other areas in Wisconsin, the season for walleye, and northern remains open on many waters of the central Wisconsin area. Check with the Wisconsin DNR to insure that you fish on waters where the season for these gamefish has not closed.
Panfish have been taking center stage in the central Wisconsin are now that the weather has warmed up. The bite has been fantastic on a lot of area lakes. We are also having a great walleye bite as well as catching some monster northerns while we are fishing on the backwater areas of the Wisconsin River.
Get ready, because the best part of ice fishing is here and as the season progresses we will continue to see things heat up even more.
