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

I said " treated minnows and leeches". As in dead, processed, freeze dried, store bought, legal in Summerset, minnows and leeches.

bo you are fine gulp is man made baits the vhs free are dead minnows treated and brined to sterilize them so they dont transmit vhs from the dead minnows into the lake

To clarify on previous post, LIVE minnows or LIVE leeches are NOT allowed in Lake Summerset. Only live bait allowed are worms and larvae. You are allowed to use Gulp-type fake leeches and jarred minnows that are marked as certified VHS-free.

FISHING REPORT
1/6/11 10:30 AM CST
Ice Depth: 12" Conditions: Cloudy
Fished 10 AM - 6 PM. The bite started slow. Moved around a little didn't mark many fish. Caught a few perch in the 5 - inch range in 14 - 17 FOW. Picked up and moved around 3. Started marking schools of fish in 20 - 24 FOW, and had no trouble getting them to bite.. The bluegills were mostly of the 5 - 7 inch variety with a few 8 inchers scattered in. The Crappies were the majority of the fish caught. mostly 6 - 8 inches, with a few around 10 or 11". Our group of 4 caught easily over 100 fish.. We kept enough for a meal or 2. Bait size, style or color didn't seem to matter much if you were on fish, but darker color horizontal type jigs with plastics was the most effective on crappies. Doubles were common and the fishing was fast paced at times, pulling fish as fast as you could get back down. The size was somewhat frustrating though, and at times we'd just change jigs because we got tired of catching fish, and in effort to find something to coax the bigger fish. We had out 3 tip-up baited with treated minnows and leeches. No flags.

Slow bite today. Fished from 1:pm to sunset. Two nice crappies, small gils and a small waleye, all released.

Try again in the morning before the big storm hits.
