Boulder Junction is a great destination for your first (or next) fishing trip, but there are a few things you should know before you head out on the water in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Our Fishing 101 series is here to help!

Check out our tips for tips and techniques you can use on your next fishing trip.

  • When fishing for walleye, remember they’re never far away from their main food source, so that’s where you should fish.
  • Most lakes in Vilas County and northern Wisconsin have bass—mostly smallmouth, but there is a good population of largemouth as well.
  • Fish around shady areas or structures, and use a lure that mimics what the bass are eating, like crayfish and minnows.
