Nope. Oars and seat cushions plus a paper map of the lake with various areas marked for different fish.
I stopped at the Parks & Rec office and inquired about the fishing pier. It was removed due to "expansion" of the beach area. Also, over the years it has been sinking at the front end, which needed to be addressed. At the moment, there are no plans to replace it, but only because it is not in the capital budget to do so. The Village Board is the body that approves the capital plan. She recommended attending the next Village Board meeting and request they consider installing a new fishing pier in Paulus Park. She said if the pier was to be replaced, it would be a floating pier like in Breezewald Park.
Try looking at the Village's website to see if you can leave comments for the Board about replacing the pier. So now the fishing options on the lake are: the south part of Paulus Park outside the beach area, the promenade, Breezewald Park fishing pier and renting a boat at Bill's Boats on the east side of the lake. The $20 fee, no matter how long you go out, is accurate.
The Village has removed the fishing pier from Paulus Park. One more step to prevent access to fishing on the lake by anyone who doesn't live on the lake. Only legal public access from shore now is the promenade and a small area on the south side of Paulus Park.

Bass appear to be finished spawning, lots of fry up shallow on sunday/monday. Hopefully it was a good year. Crappies are good right now. Also saw two muskies on a bed.
Has anyone noticed the brand new police/patrol boat? Seems like a complete waste of money, Ive never ever seen the lake patrol address the idiots on the lake. excessive speeds, ignorant operation you name it.. all they do is drive around and check for their stupid sticker/use permits... A weed cutter would have been better investment than a brand new patrol boat...
