I'll be fishing the lake for the first time with a few friends this weekend. I've been reading through the past reports and have picked an area to start from. I'm targeting perch and we will have a few tip-ups out for walleye and northern.

I'm wanting to go out of the launch on Quam Dr. If going out of there, can I park on the road if the lot is full? I'll have the snowmobile with me, but that loads into the back of the truck, so no trailer.

If you any of you guys want to stop in and say hi, feel free to do so. My sled is an old Arctic Cat El Tigre with an NSI sticker on the front by the headlight. I'll have a hub style pop up shanty, and possibly a suitcase style shanty out there. If we are in the shanty, one of the doors will be partially open to watch tip-ups, so just come on up to that door and say hi.

You will see me go back and forth shuttling everything and everyone out there. If you want to hitch a ride out, I'll trade you for info for fishing this lake.

Buddy found a jig rod on the South shore Sat. Message with description to get it back.

Also, does anyone know if there are springs located near Nichols Point?

Thanks

NAVirus, you were probably right by us. We had similar luck, 4 flags only 1 small pike. 3 of the flags came within 2 minutes of daybreak, one after another. Nice little flurry of activity. We had something bigger on the one line but it actually broke my buddies hook, the leader held up. Seemed like everyone around had similar results. If I go back this year i'm going to try the SW corner of the lake.

And yes, it was annoying having people setting up all over. but thats fishing in a tourney... What annoyed me was when we'd spot a neighbors flag go up, and yell flag for 2 minutes at the group with no response. Watch your tipups better!

Went out to the tourney on Saturday. Fished off of the state park beach line. Had two flags and no fish. Also was jigging in the shanty with electronics. Good size schools of blue gill would move in but had no interest in any of the 20 different set ups we showed them. Does anyone know what the gills are hitting on?

Had a great time at the fisheree. Ice had varied quite a bit from all the holes my group drilled. We ended up with 4 nice small mouth and one was the fisheree winner! After we started catching fish, people moved right in and thought it was fine putting their tip up 10 feet away. Don't understand some morons and how they don't know when close is too close. I know it's a fisheree and there are a lot of people but when you take the chance of having a fish run for 10 seconds or less and tangling another line, that's to close. Best part was they didn't catch anything after moving too close, Karma... Can't wait to get some sleep and back out again!

Thanks to all who participated in the SCC fisheree. Many fish were caught. A good number of northerns, biggest 14lbs., a few walleyes, crappies some guys really got into them with a 10 fish bag weighing over 10lbs.,perch a few, several whitebass, numerous SM bass, blue gills(I caught 8 between 8.5 and 9.5 inches) even catfish and bullheads. No one caught the tagged walleye. Although many didn't catch much. The club thanks everyone. The club stocked 6,000 walleye fingerling last fall. The club does a lot with youth archery,4H, and kids fishing tournament in summer.

Drawings every 2 ours gives everyone achance at cash. Enter any fish and Than a name is drawn for 1st,2nd,and 3rd. Club thinks it helps curb cheating. Kids are really happy winning $125 for a crappie or any legal fish
