The park has a bait shop but doesn't open until April. The nearest shop to E is all the way in Bloomington.

Can anyone tell me where the nearest bait shop is? Heard great things about this lake, and want to give it a try for crappies. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Went fishing earlier today. Lake was about 80% covered with ice. Most of the ice looked like it was melting today. We will need many more days of cold weather before the lake is locked up. I went fishing by the pump station. The water on the left side of the pump is not frozen completely. Still enough water to jig. Didn't catch anything.

Went out targeting walleye. Trolled cranks, tried casting jigs on the flats, vertical jigged the dropoffs... nothing more than a couple nice crappie. Maybe next time.

Came up from Champaign today with a buddy to fish this lake for the first time. Lake is beautiful. Anyways, we fished all from shore with crappie tubes and crappie nibbles tipped on small jigs. Between the two of us we got 6 Crappie 2 blue gill 1 large mouth and 1 rock bass. If was slow but the fish are there if you are patient.

Nice day fishing. Not too much wind, and the fish were biting. targeted Saugeye and caught about a dozen, all ranging between 13-17" (I did take a few home for the dinner table - but others released). Caught the fish while dragging crawlers on a three way rig on one rod and jig and gulp bait (emerald minnow) on the other. Did well on both setups. Most fish were on the edges between 12-18 feet near dropoffs.

Tight lines everyone!

Spratay,

Try around the beach with a minnow under a slip bobber. You'll get a lot of crappie and occasional saugeye this way. There is also a good dock you can fish off in a bay that can be accessed off some country road that you use to get to the other boat launch (not sure what the road name is, but you can see it on the lake map the park office provides). I have always had good luck in that area. I haven't ton a ton of shore fishing there, but if you get a chance to rent a boat there, do it. The spots I have had the best luck at are best accessed by boat. Good luck, and please post if you have success. Don't give up on this lake!

Camped out there last Wednesday and Thursday and came home with 37 crappie (10" avg.) and 1 walleye. No luck on the elusive Musky. Love this lake! Minnows on a jig was the ticket!

I think the fishing reports that are left about evergreen on their website are incorrect. They always seem to say that they are catching fish. I've been there at least 10 times this year and only one day have I caught fish. I'm fishing from the banks using minnows, jigs, night crawlers, mr. twisters shad, and mr. twister grubs. And I've only seen a handful of people actually catch fish. I know its early but even all of last year, it just seems this lake is extremely over fished at it takes an extreme amount of work for not that much fun catching a good amount of fish.
