    Lake Details


    What you need to know about fishing Lake Poygan

    Lake Poygan is 27,466 acres and is also connected to the Winnebago System. The main species of game fish targeted in Lake Poygan include Walleye, Pike, Muskie, Bass, and Perch. Because this is a large shallow body of water, the wind is a big player. When the wind blows, it can really make the water murky and cause fish to move to the main basin of the lake and roam based on finding baitfish. This is a rather structureless lake in terms of contours, grass beds and bottom transitions are a key thing to focus on. Walleye, Northern Pike, and Muskies can be targeted in this open main lake basin by trolling cranks and live bait. Covering water becomes very important in this scenario as fish become nomadic and can be tough to locate. Bass, Bluegill, and Perch can be caught in the shallows around the canals and various seawalls.
