Unfortunately, the fisherman are the minority in the community. If people want to make a difference, come to a fish club meeting the first thursday each month. I hear a lot of complaints from the peanut gallery, but that doesn't get us very far with issues such as weed coverage. According to the DNR we are at about 15% weeds. Seems when one or two members complains about their "hardship" getting their boats from their shorelines to a "safe" zone away from all the weeds (which is about 6 feet from shore), the alarm bell sounds and the weeds are eliminated. The other problem is the lack of natural shorelines with trees and such. The trend seems to be concrete or steel sea walls and the fertilizer just runs right in the lake. A commitee is actually preparing a sea wall guide to "help" folks plan a better sea wall. The trend for the fishing habitat is not a good one, unfortunately, and that shows with the lesser size and lack of forage. Also, a big problem with carp. I would like to see it be illegal to release carp. We plan on having a better carp tournament this year also. We need volunteers and people to get involved. Everyone that fishes is welcome, whether a member or guest. No cost or obligations.

Have been wanting to get some eyes through the ice, something I have never done before. I was wondering if anyone could help with location or has any advice. Would be much appreciated.

I wish more places would charge a little to fish at them to get some sort of funding for lake management from what I've heard this a good lake and to pay to fish it would be well worth while.

Dues are going up for property owners about the same amount. First time the fishing passes have been raised since 1995. If you fish 4 times a month that's $1.66 a day. Sorry, don't feel your pain.

Does the homeowner have to be with you. I have a buddy that lives out there but there's no way he's ever going to go ice fishing would I be able to go as long as he calls in a pass. I know at lake carroll the property owner has to be with you. Just want to make sure if I went that I'm all legit not breaking any rules thanks for any info

Ice Depth: 3" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 16° - 20° F
Got one nice crappie almost 11", a perch and about 8 other smaller panfish. Caught and released one largemouth bass about 11". Ice was good near Beach 2, but still open water by Beach 1 and near Tamarack Bay.

I know Lake Summerset is a gated community, but drive by the place frequently and looks like a nice lake to fish. Is there any way for someone to just get access to the lake for fishing purposes?

I'm thinking it might be safe by mid-Sunday, but don't quote me. No changes to the rules. Remember, bass season closed Jan. 1 until mid-June.
