Hit it once late fall as a "to fish while Diver Duck scouting" endeavor. So very little time with lines in the water. I vaguely know a successful tournament fisherman that pounds it. I'll convey what he told me: "Get off the Eastern break lines you'll likely see Walleye guys stacked on (he was right). Go deep 25ft, find the ciscos and you'll find the musky. Jig retrieving or slow cranking Swimmin Dawgs at 8-15ft deep, creepers or Hog Wabblers are his choice bait, not much for veg but where there is -a small single blade bucktail or spinner bait will get ya the little ones."
From my short stint on the water, I can tell you it's going to take some time to start to figure it out. Shes sandy and depth doesn't equal jack in regards to rock/veg. Good luck and swap your suckers for nightcrawlers, the sturgeon are quite abundant with plenty of size. They'll makes ya jump and burn in a bait and cast at a wake in heartbeat more than once.

I know the late reply I live 5 miles away from yellow lake I fish it often. Numbers are better DNR stocked it about 8 years ago, the musky are about 40" now. Always a chance of catching the 50". They are in the lake. The lake turns very green in late summer. Any shoreline is good, have turned musky on all of the shorelines catching them on everything from blades, surface, dawgs, to jerk baits.
