The entire bay is now devoid of weeds and fish! I would not waste your time there, but that's just me!

I realize this is a Lake-Link sin to some, but I have a question in regards to a specific spot. When I was a kid, we did really well in Barber's Bay through the ice for pike and panfish. About 10 years ago I went back and it was nothing like it used to be....not many weeds, and not many fish. Is Barber's Bay worth spending any time on in the winter anymore?

Fished Tuesday morning with a friend. Tried targeting perch in the 30 foot basin. Marked a couple small schools. Few bites. No catches. Also, anyone know if there are standing weeds on the west ( east side I meant)side of the lake by the tracks? Seen several permanents located there. Wondering what they target.

Ice Depth: 13" Conditions: Sunny
Went out yesterday to give it a shot at the perch. Tough walk out with the snow. Kept to the trail and made it out to 28-30FOW. Got on a school of perch first off and got 2 that were 9" and thought it was going to be a good day. Missed about 4 other bites before the school moved off. Marked another school of something that was cruising @ 10-14' range but nothing hitting. Moved around some but located fish back in the hole I started in when I was leaving in the afternoon and got 2 more perch and missed three more bites.

Thanks for the info. I'll be out there Sunday at about 1pm till about 6:30pm. I'm meeting the rest of my group at Wal-Mart, is there a bait shop between there and the launch on Quam Dr? I'd be looking to get minnows and medium shiners.

If you see me out there, feel free to stop by and say hi. I'll have this sled out there.

it's between barbers Bay and Colladay point.sometimes they set up a ice rink in that area so you can't fish it.

Hey bluegill quams drive is a good place but have to get there early its a nice launch but parking space can fill up quick. If you have electronics try fishing in the 24-26ft range for perch straight out from the quams Dr.launch use jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or waxies. Hope this help a bit to get you started good luck.

The landing off Quams is popular because it is free. Otherwise there is Kegonsa state park, or I think it is called pleasant springs,also kinda by the state park, but that launch requires a daily fee or a yearly sticker. I think there is also a launch on the north end of the lake by the mouth of the yahara river, but I personally have not used it. It probably requires a Dane county launch permit.

Hey bluegillcatcher,how about we just go out and do the fishing for you.Use the resources that are available to you.Use the info link for this lake.Use dnr website for this lake. Use google to find access spots, or better yet do what most of us on this site do. Drill some holes, move until you find fish,try different baits and presentations until you find what works.Scroll down the previous posts and you will find all the info you need.I imagine you are young and fairly new to this sport. Put your time and effort in and you will do just fine. Cool

You can park on the road off Quam Drive and the surrounding streets. There is no trailer parking though, but you said you won't have one so no problem. When the parking lot is full (only room for 4 vehicles and a very small area on the road for 2 more trailers), I just detach my trailer and park it on the ice, then park my vehicle on the road. Good luck out there!
