I'm more than happy to hit the lake for musky, hopefully I can get the motor dialed in by the weekend, I also need to fill the freezer in the worst way

Thunderstick. Would love to buddy up sometime when I'm out that way. Though I really only target musky so be warned haha.


Regarding reports etc. Most people don't even consider them. So listen this is an amazing lake for bass, there are tons of them and they get BIG I've missed a couple that were true monsters. My personal best on the lake is 5.5 pounds and I got it on a musky spinnerbait so take that for what it's worth. The musky bite is pretty rough here in my opinion . It's a numbers lake but there are some bigger fish available. The weather has major effects on this lake and high pressure systems consistently shut it down. People seem to have better action on the north section of the lake but I've always seen the biggest fish on  the south section. I'm not much of a walleye fisherman but it always sounds like a struggle based on the people I know. You have to jump between hundreds of cribs or troll the old River edge early and late season you can find them shallower but that is typically around the man made structures. Pan fishing has always been difficult here for us. There are crappies you can find at times and they can have some size. Catfish in here too. All in all there is a lot to target and go after but more often than not the lake seems to be "off". Personally I think people need to stop dropping structure in every winter and let the Eco system settle.


Good luck

Well guys to be completely honest with you, most of the anglers I have talked to haven't heard of or just don't use this site, I have posted in the past but and have always had decent luck on the lake.

I decided to skip ice fishing last winter as the ice conditions were crap, when the lake finally did freeze there was more water on the surface than usual, and this season I have been trying to finish up my project boat (wanted to get out today but weather looks like garbage for a test run). I'm always happy to share what I know with other anglers and always interested in finding another fishing buddy, I'm not a guide or claim to know  exactly where to go every time but PM me if you have any questions or want to go fishing 

Good luck.

There isn't much for fishing reports for any lake on this site.  Also, if there is a report it is a very good chance that it was posted after the pattern went stale.  Can't say as if I blame them, people these days don't put in the effort to figure things out and have no problem zoning right in on another guy that has put the effort in.  I guess if someone really wants to know the current patterns on certain lakes they should probably hire a half a day guide trip.  Not trying to be a jerk, but guys just don't want to give out this kind of info.

It is funny how few anglers post fishing reports about this lake. Every one that I have met at this launch has been nice and informative. I fished there this weekend and there were at least another 20 boats each day fishing. What gives guys? Any way here is my report.

Saturday morning 6/18/16, Caught 3 smallmouth on jig with 3"twister tail in 6 fow. Stumbled onto a topwater pattern that I caught 5 smallmouth in 20 minutes with a skitter pop bait. Caught all species of panfish vertically jigging on the side of some structure in 11 fow, using a small jigging rap and crappie minnow head, and a jigging spoon tipped with waxies. 

Sunday 6/19/16, went back to same spot for topwater smallmouth caught five 14"+, fish were surfacing for bugs in the early morning before wind picked up. Caught more pannies vertically jigging again along with a bonus eye and two cats.

Looking for some kind of advice/pattern on finding some walleyes here. Just want to catch some eaters not picky. I tried trolling and lost some crankbaits to the trees and cribs.

You're not alone Csection, fishing was absolute garbage in my boat over the weekend (if that makes you feel any better). We had very few chances at fish, my dad lost a very nice Musky (45+") on a bass topwater (shook its head and cut the line). And I flubbed a figure 8 on another fish that looked hot. That was it, that was all the action. Pretty lame.

Fishing has been terrible so far this year for me. I've gone entire days without a bite even. Mostly pitching jig minnow but also using crawlers. Hit all the spots all over the lake - blanked. Trolled cranks for Muskies- nada. Anyone have some advice?
