North/South Twin, Phelps, May 30

North and South Twin Lakes has long been a trophy muskie hunter’s destination. It could possibly be the body of water that has produced more 40 and 50 pound muskie over the decades than any other system in the state of Wisconsin. With the advent of “catch and release”, not only does the “Twins” still log it’s share of monster muskie every year, but also the number of action fish has increased to the point where seeing 30 or more muskie a day in not uncommon. North Twin is the bigger and deeper of the two lakes with 2,788 acres of water and the maximum depth being 60 feet. South Twin is 642 acres and the maximum depth is 43 feet. Both lakes share many of the same characteristics in that both are fairly clear in water clarity and both are very fertile with vast coontail and cabbage beds, along with pencil reeds that attract and hold fish. Big Twin has however better structure with bars, humps, points, fast dropping breaklines, inside turns, and an island as opposed to Little Twins standard bowl shape.

Lake Mohawksin, Tomahawk, September 24

At the confluence of the Tomahawk, Somo and Wisconsin rivers is the flowage known as Lake Mohawksin. With its 1910 acres and 25 foot depth, Lake Mohawksin is fisherman's paradise. Trophy fish of walleye, pike, smallmouth bass, crappie and muskie all can be had in its waters.

In early spring, Lake Mohawksin waters and the Wisconsin River feeding it, is busy with fishermen who flock from all over the state to ish its abundant walleye population. When the muskie season opens, fishermen of a different kind gather to fish Mohawksin, to do battle with the king of the freshwater game fish. The majority of the muskie anglers on Mohawksin are from the surrounding area, but for the muskie chasers that find out about it, muskie fishing opportunities are well rewarded when they travel to fish its waters.

Manitowish Chain, Manitowish, August 20-21

If there was a body of water in the State of Wisconsin that will give you the opportunity of catching a lot of muskies with a legitimate chance of landing a big fish, of 35 lbs. or more, then the Manitowish Chain of Lakes has to be on any anglers short list.

Three Lakes Chain, Three Lakes, September 10-11

Fishing on the Three Lakes Chain is, by some folks definition, as the epitome of the "north woods experience". Nestled within the tall pines is this 20 lake chain and 7,000 acres of water teaming with pike, walleye, large and small mouth bass, panfish and of course the "king" of freshwater fish...the muskie. And even though the chain has been built up with homes, the wilderness setting is still perfect for those muskie anglers who are looking for the perfect muskie fishing experience. The Three Lakes Chain is the upper part of a larger chain that includes the lakes of the Eagle River Chain and are both accessible by way of a boat hoist at the Burnt Rollways Reservoir Dam. Even though both the Three Lakes and Eagle River Chains contain muskies and share some of the same characteristics, the Eagle River Chain has more muskies per acre but the muskies in Three Lakes Chain run larger and fish in the 30# class range are caught there every season. One reason for the better than average growth rates on the Three Lakes Chain is the larger, deeper lakes contain cisco that fatten up these toothy giants.
