I took some out of town relatives into Beyers a few weeks ago to get out of the wind and catch some panfish. I didn't launch there so I didn't know. We turned around and went back to the main lake

It didn't even occur to me that the weeds  were poisoned out.

I'm not understanding how the lake association can authorize poisoning of the lake? so maybe 20% of the lake has weeds and that's too much?

Also saw the weed cutter out on Tuesday. Go take a look at the pile of weeds when they unload them. You will see all kinds of minnows and small Bluegills among other small fish. I see meat heads water skiing in the shallows in the weeds. Why not go out in the middle of the lake where there's no weeds?

What a way to wreck a lake for the future

I always like when they spray they claim they are just targeting certain areas of the lake. Anyone with common sense knows when you mix liquid with liquid this is going to spread throughout the entire lake. It isn't like putting chemicals or fertilizer on a field. Also those chemicals don't target one specific species of plant. From what I have been told by biologists is lake plants are not genetically different enough to engineer a chemical to target one species over another. They try and do it early since milfoil comes up before native plants. But the problem with that is the native plants are still there growing just not as tall yet. So they end up just killing it all.

The bass fishing this summer has been better deep (12-20ft) than it has in the last 4 or 5 years, for both largemouth and smallmouth.  As others have said, its most likely due to lack of weeds in shallower.  Even in the weeds you do find shallow, most fish in there are scattered and small.  The only good thing to come of this is finding some deep water honey holes!  :)

Guys I believe that last year and this year they have been doing some spraying of invasive milfoil (not targeting the native one) in the inlet off County Road A.  they have not been spraying the main lake and the spraying has been targeted.  I was very concerned when the Sanitary district sent out info on it but I don't believe it should impact the Lake. They were spraying basically 2-4D weedkiller in some of the channels and Silvercreek inlet.  I did not know they did it this year.  They also did Beyer's Cove which was choked off completely in the past.

That's really sad. It has been tough lately finding any good weeds. Thanks minners for that info.

The weeds are behind in the lake because they sprayed it earlier this year. Around very early June or very end of May. There were some signs at the Cty K boat landing. Posted off to the side of the landing so not many people probably saw them. I am sure that was done on purpose. Still can't believe how the DNR allows lake associations to spread that poison into our lakes. They basically sprayed the shallows all the way around the lake. About the first 300 feet from shore the sign had said.

The bass bite has been pretty good. Smallmouth seem to be a little scattered, but covering water and concentrating on deep weeds seem to be the key.  Catching most of the fish on dropshots.

Good #'s of largemouth still up shallow around docks.

Looks like nice weather this weekend for the Big Sacks Bass Club Open Bass Tourney. You can sign up at the county park landing the morning of. Entry Forms and info @ www.facebook.com/bigsacksbassclub
