Bangs has been bad the past few years but that's because I didnt know where to go. There is structure and plenty of fish. Last year was a great year on the ice. Looking forward to this year. Get out with somebody who knows a thing or two about fishing before you make your opinion. I was always complaining about the fees but you can truly tell they are going to the lake. Bite has been way better

There is structure in the lake. Just need to know where it's at. My only issue with the lake is lack of forage. My opinion is they should do some selective harvesting of the bass rather than it be c&r. The lake does hold some big bass and gives up 40"+ pike every year.

Well folks another body of water to not waste you  time or money nor effort.. This is a mud hole.. Bottom is black sledge.... only moderate weed growth to hold fish and absolutely no structure.. lake is flat as a pan with only one hole 30 feet deep.  Needless to say the advice is to only fish with Live bait worm or minnow.  The Lake is surrounded by over built homes and condo.  We caught one perch on a lindy rig off bottom in 20 feet deep.  Stay clear of this lake if u want a bite go to local bars.. 

Good luck
