Northwoods fishing on the Cisco Chain

Don Dziedzina shows off a nice smallie caught on Mamie Lake while staying at the Angler's Isle Northwoods Resort.

I just arrived in Land O Lakes Wisconsin and had to hit the water.  But I have not been up here since last summer and wanted to find a lake that was producing.  All I had was a few hours in the afternoon so to make the best of my time, I went to my Northwoods resource, Mark Gostisha of the Forest Lake Country Store ( ). 

I was staying at the Angler's Isle Resort located just outside of Land O Lakes and on the shores of Mamie Lake, part of the Cicso Chain. ( )

Mark showed me a few spots to try on Mamie Lake.  The fish were on and had a great time catching mostly smallmouth bass.  I caught one largemouth too.  All together 8 smallies and one largemouth made it to the boat.  It was a great afternoon. 

Bass are catch and release now and it was no problem letting them go to be caught another day. 

For now, I'd like to show you a few photos of some of the fish caught.  Can't spend too much time on this computer as it's time to go fishing again.
