We're going to alternate lakes between Rock and Ripley.  $15 per guy, fishing starts at 6 with registration before hand, ends at 8:30 and limited to 19 boats. 

Sandy Beach launch at Rock and Scout camp on Ripley.

4 fish won it last night and I think was about 7 pounds, but don't hold me to the weight.

Finally someone has it right the Aztecs didnt build them, Steve from Sentry has brought in sonar pics and hung in sentry for a couple years now but they arent like the clear underwater ones youd like to see

For the record, the "pyramids" in Rock Lake are of the Mississippi Native American tribe, just like the remains of Aztalan a few miles away. Not Aztec. Kind of cool to think of some of the historic artifacts potentially buried beneath the lake. Any of you that dive should bring us back some pictures or video if the water clarity is decent this year!!

True to the bass facts but I think a large part of the gill issues is over fishing and the uncontrolled amount of pike in this lake. My son and I go trolling for the hell of it and can boat easily 40 pike in a day all right around 20-26". Wish the DNR would lower the size limit on these guys for a year or two so it could cut back on them. There are big pike in there and a pike will eat a 1/3 of its weight a day but I dont hink they are eating all the big gills, I think they are making more of a meal on the young walleye and the perch. used to get nice ones but most large perch are now in the 9-10" range if that.

I hear you, such a shame how much population of keeper sized bass has crashed. Wish people knew the damage they do to entire system when they keep so many predator fish. Stunted panfish almost always follows. I miss glory days of Rock but luckily there are other lakes that guys dont hit as hard and have good bass fishing still.
