Amber Lights in Northern Wisconsin

Was up in Hayward, WI on a fishing trip. We decided to do some night fishing this night. The lake was Chippewa Flowage, it is a lake in northern Wisconsin, pretty secluded and surrounded by forest. We had are boat anchored right by an island, and we were looking east. Right above the tree line I seen two bright amber yellow objects and by the time I asked the guy in the boat if he was seeing this, there was 5 and then we watched the 6th one rise straight up from behind the tree line. It seemed like the other 5 were waiting on the sixth light. Once they were all there they formed more like a check mark formation. They moved north for about 30 seconds. I lost 3 of the lights behind the trees on he island but I still seen three and they were headed east now, and fast. Just as fast as they came in our field of view they were gone. I know they weren't planes, I live in Chicago and right by one of the busiest airports in the world. I am used to seeing hundreds of ! planes everyday. Plus, I know it wasn't military. I was in the Air Force for many years and I never seen a formation like that, and plus the distance between the objects was two far for military. I checked maps of the area and there isn't a airport in site that could handle such aircraft. The lack of noise and the way they moved ruled out choppers. So I am puzzled, but it was definetly something I can not explain.
