Minocqua Wisconsin offers some of the best fishing, eating and atmosphere that you’ll find anywhere. We are huge fans of The Cheese Board and many of the downtown shops… and while these places near the lake help us enjoy the middle of the day… the morning and evenings are for one thing, and one thing only… fishing.
The Manitowish Chain O Lakes has a lot to offer up in that regard – and we specifically target areas shared by multiple-species like smallmouth bass, walleye, panfish, northern pike, and even the occasional largemouth bass – although the Wisconsin largemouth are usually not as large as what we grow in our neck of the woods.
We use fishing techniques that appeal across the board. Spoons flash like injured baitfish, while plastics resemble natural forage – or at times, chartreuse flash at dusk to get the attention of hungry predators in low light conditions.
If you’re in the area, make sure to use the tips & techniques shown in this video to catch your fill – and if Paul Bunyan’s opens back up – make sure to visit. That’s a good time as well.
On this particular trip we learned a very important lesson: before you go ripping across the lake to look for greener pastures, make sure to thoroughly explore the area right by the launch. Whether it’s public or private, chances are it’s often passed over as fishermen come and go… be smarter than the average Joe & let’s get fishing!

Some days… it all comes together…
Fishing is always fun – especially in Wisconsin – but it isn’t always as exciting as we’d like it to be. However, the slow days are what makes us appreciate the days when everything seems to come together, and you find loads of fish… like on this awesome morning.
