As far as ice there is 10-12 inchs of good ice the snow melted off and did not hit it to bad with the cold temps starting again it should be fine.

Reading a few posts back is just what I've been telling my buddie, nothing is sacred anymore. Someone catches a fish, right away, to the bragging board. Between cameras, the new graphs, gps, a fish doesn't stand a chance & even when gas was over 4 bucks a gallon for premium, there were more out on the water than ever with bigger moters than ever. It seems like before most fish, they need weather for the week, water temps, how high the weeds are, yada yada. Times have changed for sure. As long as you are within' the law...fry away! I can't afford to fish that much so I'm certainly gonna try to catch at least 10-15 pannies for the fryer. Years back when the bluegrass festival happened up there,,,this lake was alive with skinny dippers every night. Now that was fishin'!!!

Can anyone give me a general idea of how the lakes holding up from the warm temps? How much snow is still on the ice? How thick is the ice? Should I have to worry about any slush yet? Thanks

I too enjoy fishing Metonga and put a good amount of time all year trying to find the fish. I spend a lot of time getting skunked to find the schools. nickers is one of those guys who sees people catching fish and just snugs his boat way to close and start fishing over the other guys lines. This lake can be fished out, like midnightmoonhowler said a few years back there were RVs, shanties and "pros" all over and the lake took a few years to recover.

The next time Nickers heads to his favorite fishing spot and finds 8 boats on it he has no one to blame but himself.

100% fact that a blabbering loud mouth can kill a lake when using this website. The crowds will flock and the population will get wiped out taking many years to recover. Newbie prob doesnt care because he will just move to the next lake and do the same. Nothing like choking yourself with your own leash!

Amen 8pointer, I too have fished Metonga for more than 60 years, there were many bad years, this has been a good summer. A few winters ago the lake turned into shanty city, it was hard to catch a perch over 7inches for awhile after that. I hate seeing some newcomer promoting the lake the way he is, as if he feels he needs a medal for fisherman of the year. I just wonder if his buddies in the other 4 boats know what he is posting and what they would think of him now? Lake Link is a wonderful source of info for us fisherman, but man, use your head, its like Nickers owns a bait shop up there!!

Nickers you are full of BS you were out there both days the weekends that you posted you were. Second there are no musky in Metonga I have fished this lake since the 60's and have never heard or seen a musky caught. I hope the lake warden is watching the sight and questions you on this. Third You act like catching perch makes your more of a man! like you know the lake better then anyone else... shout you mouth and enjoy the fishing and share your catch instead of bragging about it!!!! Lips Sealed Lips Sealed

I know about both rules catching and possession....and I am within the rules.as for pulling fish from metonga. ....there are plenty of people that say that the lake is dead and no perch are left in it.....with the video I have in all areas in that lake you would be amazed on whats in it besides perch....that lake is very much alive and well, perch, bass, walleye , northern and muskie

Please checkout the possession limits in the fishing regs on page nine. I'm not a fish biologist so I'm not sure about your theory on the size of fish being taken. One thing I am sure about is that Lake Metonga receives much fishing pressure during both summer and winter. If all or most fisherman were to take out the numbers you describe in your posts this lake be harmed. It is our responsibility to protection our resources for up coming seasons and for the generations to come.
