Fished here Saturday and Sunday. Fished in 7-10' of water with scattered weeds, found many gills, crappies and perch. While the bulk of them were on the small side you could manage enough for a couple of meals with some sorting. Gold diamond horizontal jig with red spikes or waxies was productive. Perch and crappies ignored small minnows. Fish were scattered in the water column with some 3 feet under the ice. The ice was about 15" with the top 5" frozen slush and 10" of clear ice. Snow meted off on Sunday to standing puddles and water running in the holes. Saw one truck on the ice Saturday. eyesman

Don't be afraid to fish in the weeds, especially forLMB and drift the deep weed edges for eyes.

I haven't fished LSG in a couple of years because of the weeds, but the north side of west bay is a good place to start. Also, where west bay enters no fish bay. Good electronics or a lake map at the least. Good luck !!

Thanks for the reply Stl Ken. We've tossed around the idea of a guide, not sure if it is a route we will end up going, but we've certainly thought about it. Are there any tips for other game fish on the lake?

If your looking for your first musky I'd suggest a guide, they have the knowledge and tools for a successful trip. They might recommend a different lake that's better for your first musky. If it has to be LSG, try calling Ken Jackson at jacksons resort or check at Rays bait shop in town

I'm a new member on the site, but I have trusted the info on the website for a couple of years now as a visitor.

I was hoping someone could help me out. I will be coming up and staying on Little St Germain lake for a long weekend in two weeks, and for someone that wants to maximize their time on the lake and catch some picture worthy fish, can you help point us in the right direction? We will target mostly pike, bass, and walleye, but really want to net our first muskie.

Are there any spots which anyone would recommend? We are all strickly C&R.

Spent last week on Little St. for 7 days. It was our first time in St. G and fishing on this lake. We targeted bass and muskie and did well on bass in the reeds. My friends son caught a 24.5 inch walleye (released). Muskie fishing was tough as we raised several fish but did not get any in the boat. It was in the 80's, sunny everyday, 2 days of bad wind and a lot of boat traffic. Several muskie spots were easy to find as there are always boats fishing straight out from the public launch. It was impossible to fish shallow shoreline or docks anywhere on the lake (accept a some reed spots). There is a SERIOUS weed issue happening on this lake, make sure that you bring a heavy duty rake for your prop!

Went fishin back in June, sorry for the late report. Did pretty well drifting minnows for some keeper-sized crappies, but was on the hunt for big perch. Couldn't locate those. Also found a few walleyes with 5 or 6 shorts from 10"-14" and also got 3 legals from 16"-18". Kept 1 along with some panfish. As always I got a few nice bass. If anyone knows of where some perch are holding on here I would gladly trade walleye spots with you. Appreciate it. Drake

Annual family vacation to LSG. Great weather for fishing all week, with a large variety of fish caught, nearly all released. Walleye, mostly small, one 18" keeper. jigs Northern, several nice ones up to 28", found them all week long in all bays. Jigs, spinners, top-waters. Two of them hit a crappie jig on ultralight rig, what a ride! Muskie, 2 small ones caught on the dock. Crappie, mostly small, a few up to 9 inches. Very good bite in the evenings on small jigs. Bluegill, a few small ones, but not biting hard yet. Rock bass and Perch, all small LM bass up to 14", started getting much more active later in the week.

Coming up this weekend to fish for my bachelor party. We have never fished this lake before and was wondering where we could catch some pike and maybe some walleye. We are staying at Hillers Pine Haven Resort. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you
