Fished yesterday from 1:30 - 6:45.  Accessed the lake from the Park District ramp and fished a little north of Lindy's ramp in 12 FOW.  Had a productive day catching bass, a catfish, perch, pumkinseeds, gills and several crappie.  Most fish were caught within 2 foot of the bottom.  All crappie came on small minnows.  The bass hit a slender spoon with white spikes added for scent.  The perch hit a small kastmaster with spikes added.  There were 11 inches of clear solid ice with approximately 2 inches of frozen slush on top. With the rain coming this might have been the last trip of the year.  I hope not.

Got back out today after a couple weeks away from Bangs.  The water has cleared up. Marked 11" good ice under about 6-12" snow.  ATV travel was good, foot travel was slow but doable.  I went out off of LVVA.  Got a nice mixed-bag in 3 hours while the sun was shining bright.  7-10 f.o.w. and fish were aggressive. 1 perch and 1 crappie were pushing 12".  An excellent day to be out

Not sure what biggest bass was for adults, but 18" for kids.

I usually park off Bonner Road, go down Bonner and make a right on Madison. Go all the way down until you see the lake. There are a lot of signs that say "members only parking". I have never been a member and have parked there for years and so does everyone else. I never had an issue. Walk out to the left of the lake. There is a nice 16ft hole about 150-200 yards out. Good for crappies at night.

Isn’t the parking kind of funny at this lake? I went there once but it seemed like a lot of no parking signs
