Beware: Lake jumping can be dangerous
By Kurt Krueger

LET’S SAY you hit the Eagle River Chain early for walleyes, head to Boot Lake for some crappie action, and then finish up the day catching the rest of your daily walleye limit on Butternut Lake.

Sounds like a plan. Similar scenarios are played out again and again this time of year as anglers make the most of their days.
It’s called lake jumping, and it’s an inseparable part of Wisconsin’s fishing tradition.
The trend has become even more common since tribal spearing gave us three-walleye and two-walleye bag limits, where anglers are forced to change lakes in order to legally harvest five walleyes — still the daily bag limit statewide.
