Horse, she does not need to be with you. If you are not a certified resident you can still fish alone during daylight hours with a $5 pass. Go to the office and they can tell you the rules.

Thanks everyone for their responses. I will compile them. PLEASE, everyone give me your opinions. Just got off the lake and seems like the panfish are afraid of the lure (watching on the Vexilar). Got a nice catfish on a tipup with an old chunk of fish on it from the freezer. Never got a panfish bite. Yea, some folks want a clean bathub look. As far as bow fishing, there are opportunities to bow fish and the club pays $2 per fish. Just cut the dorsel fin off and throw the rest in the trash. Of course we will have to get the special permission slip from the office and a gate pass from a friend of course. Stay tuned.

yes the lake needs weeds. But I herd a guy brag that he and some other guys were killing the weeds them selfs at night and doing the hole lake!! They are that welthy.I had a house there 10yrs ago, but built out in the country.I'm now back and live there at my girlfriends house.I'd love to go fishing but she has to be with me. thats tough when she's at work. I'm off work do to a injury.It kills me to look out her window and see a lake I cant fish. I have all the stuff to go ice fishing. Cant put my boats in there in the summer because there just to big. I do good in the pec river for walleye!! I should be a guid there.$$

I've been out a handfull of times this winter and am not impressed w/ panfish size. I'm going out today and am going to keep only panfish which are 8" or bigger. From what Ive seen; a 9" crappie is quite elussive. Ive fished here since about 1985. We thru back any crappie under 10" back in the day. That was when the natural weeds where here. All the fishing was fantastic. As usual; I'm probably wrong but it seems to all come back to the weed kill. With luck; Im hopeing to score some crappies today for the pan. It hardly seems worth the effort to fillet 4 to 7" fish. I will report when I get back in. One question for ls club; who pays the "pro" carpers?

is this lake open to bowfishing? that might knock out a few before or after you professionally remove some.me and a friend of mine cleared out at least 30 carp in a 25x25 yard chunk of river. and that was in 30 minutes or so. just a thought for your lake.

Next Lake Summerset Fish Club meeting Thursday March 3 at LSA Office, 7pm. Usually lasts 45-60 minutes. EVERYONE IS WELCOME! New topic will be Professional carp removal. The carp are really choking our lake, destroying the bottom and weedbeds, and preventing our panfish from developing as fast as they should. Check out the following link. It is amazing the difference in water quality when these pigs are removed. The profesional told me about one lake in Wisconsin where the visibility went from 3.2 ft. to 12 ft. in one year after one carp removal session !!

Lake Summerset Fish Club needs your input! We would like to get an honest assessment of the panfish conditions in the lake, specifically: How are the sizes now and compared to say 5 years ago? How has the winter bite been? What is your overall satisfaction with panfishing at this point? Please take a couple minutes to send in a brief comment. Thanks! WE NEED YOUR INPUT OR THINGS WILL NEVER CHANGE. Send to following link or post here.

Appologize for not getting back sooner on the issues. Didn't get on PC till just now from a few days ago.

The club would like to see more of you guys attend our monthly meetings. They are very informal and we don't have official "members". Come once or everytime. Guests are totally welcome. We had 900 daily guest passes in 2009 and could count guests that attend a Fish Club meeting on one hand. With budgets the way they are we need the support to keep stocking dollars intact. It's hard for a handful of us to do everything. Strength in numbers. We can always use help for our fundraising days and stocking help too. Meetings first Thursday each month at the Office at the main gate. 7pm and usually last an hour.

Gulp is legal as are cut-bait fish caught in LS. Certain preserved real minnows in jars are now labeled "certified VHS-free" meaning they were clean before killed and packed. Dead minnows in a baggie for instance are not legal.

Greenhead, I thought so but he said Gulp-type fake leeches and jarred minnows that are marked as certified VHS-free. I thought he meant it had to say that on the bottle of Gulp. Hate to get in trouble with lake police up there. Lsfishclub, could you please clarify this? Coming up there soon, dont want to have anything illegal in my arsenal. Big Smile GL
