This lake gets fished much more than people realize. I've been fishing it for a bit over 30 years and the pressure increases each year. Equipment and techniques improve each year. I struggled this winter on the panfish but each time out saw and talked to lots of people. 1 group of 4 guys were quitting and I walked over to talk. They said they caught a "few". 1 guy set a plastic tote of average size on a small trailer and it fell off. I would be surprised of there were less than 75 gills. I just smiled and walked away. I didn't see many gills over 7"which is MY MINIMUM size for keeping. I know nobody wants to admit they caught alot. I at times lay low but will offer advice if asked. Not come out and deceive on purpose. This lake in my opinion is not hard to fish, the weeds make it good. I think the regs will help based on science. I have many pictures of me and my dad and grandpa with stringers full of large walleyes and northern from the late 70's and early 80'S They wouldn't keep northern under 28". That was when the lake was open year round. Time will tell. Regs won't hurt the lake. Get 10 on the lake and go to dam in town and get a few more and have the fish fry. Recovering from broken wrist and hope to get cleared to start fishing from doctor for next week. Reports to follow! Have turkey tag for next week, can't shoot a shotgun, sucks.
