William or anyone.... are the front portions of the docks still in?  I was there early last week, and the final halfs were gone as they have been for maybe two weeks, but she front portions were still in the water.


hoping to sneak out again tomorrow

Had a two man guide on Friday from noon to 4pm  water temps were 46 on north end and 47 on south end we started with drop shot and fathead for them and jig and plastic for me we fish 8 to 35 ft bouncing from spot to spot and after 6 stops and no bites we switched to casting stickbaits in 6 to 12 feet and with only one hit and miss we went back to the fathead and worked out way back to launch hitting 6 more areas and broke the ice with a 12 inch perch then nothing did the jigging rap we did mark them at last spot looked like eyes moving up but cold hands and darkness drove us in. The piers are out but you can launch and ease boat up to shore next to launch rather easily. If the ice holds off there are eyes to be caught. Be safe and have a great thanksgiving.

Water temps are dropping quick.  Edges around launch area actually had skimmed over but main lake still 44-45.

Lot had three trailers all day.  Fishing was great.... caught two bass and four small pike while crappie fishing.... once you find them it was as good as it has been all season.

Hopefully we get a freak winter and it stays open all year :)

Hit the lake a few days ago.  Targeted walleyes in deeper water using snap raps, rippin raps, and blade baits.  To my surprise I ended up landing a bunch of nice perch.  Never had a walleye.  Oh well.  I will take the nice surprise of perch.

The main lake water temp on the surface was around 54F.

On at 11:00am off at 6:15 targeting walleye - threw cranks shallow and soaked little suckers deep - no go - switched to crappie around 3:30 and we took a dozen home for the pan - lots of little ones had to do some sorting.  Nice to be out - tight lines.
