Minocqua Area and Northern Wisconsin
Welcome to the Minocqua Area - Nature's Original Water Park. We call it that because it's located in the middle of Northern Wisconsin's Lake Country. Here there are thousands of lakes, rivers and streams that literally saturate the geography. And vacationers have long been visiting the Minocqua Area to enjoy all this water by boating, swimming, fishing, snowmobiling and more. There's no admission fees and we're open year round!
June 11, 2013 Lakeland Area Fishing Report
Weather has been the biggest problem the past ten days in the Minocqua area. Lots of rain, thunder, cold nights and east winds have made fishing in general slower than usual. Crappies are spawning on many of the area lakes and these can be fun to catch and great to eat. Look in bays with 4 to 8 feet of water that have good weeds growing, reed areas or downed wood. You can use crappie minnows under a small bobber, small plastics like 1” tube jigs on a 1/32 oz jig head or even artificial bait like small Gulp Minnows to entice these fish. Walleyes can be found in 16 to 20 feet of water in areas that have new weeds emerging. They are starting to move to humps and bars down to 25 feet in some lakes. Minnows have been best the past few weeks, but look for leeches and nightcrawlers to kick in this week as the water warms. The warm up will also allow you to use slip bobbers near dusk and after dark.
