Very windy last Sat. but decided to check this lake out for old times sake. Grew up in the area and this was my first trip here in about 30 years! On my third cast of this years season landed a 4 lb 6 ounce largemouth that measured 21 inches! What a way to start the year. Unfortunately that was my only action all day. Only hung out on the west side due to a little ice still on the lake as well as some 40 mph winds. Certainly gonna remember my first trip back in years even though it was the only fish of the day. Don't worry boys-I released that big fella so good luck this year.

Tried it this morning for a little bit, no Muskies or flags for that matter, couple bass on the camera is all. Seen some out of towners trying some jigging with little success, then I pointed them were I got some gills last year, and it appeared like they were pounding them. People have been fishing the entire lake and walking everywhere, ice was plenty thick but had some inconsistency to it, average 5in. but had some holes around 4ish.

Hey guys, this report from Feb. 24 2010, i was house sitting for my girlfriends parents in atkinson so i'am not a local but dont mind to ice fish and i have a weird Muskie fetish, and this was more or less the only recognizable public body of water around and has Muskies, how bad as is that, so i fished it 4 or 5 times in about a 10 day span, and all the locals were extremely helpful and arlight guys, just the way Illinois is suppose to be, because everybody was a good sport heres the report, lake gets 4 1/2 out of 5 stars, seen some guys doing really good on the ice and others not so much, fish cam showed lots of nice bass, as for the Muskies three actual tip ups, iced one 42in. i guessed it between 15-20 lbs. CPR catch picture release. Lakes appears to be doing great, lot of people talking about the catfish, nice bass on the cam, bluegills around 7in., rumors of nice crappie, i believe DNR inventoried two state record Muskies out there, lets get some walleyes in here, as far as local public lakes go the people around there that take advantage of this lake are spoiled, heres some pics of that Muskie, still out there, go get him boys Evil Grin

Fished on May 2nd. The wind was really bad. Could'nt hold a position. Water was very murky. Caught 4 small crappie in about 4 hours. Fought the wind the whole time and could not fish much of the lake.

Soaked a few worms off the bank. Not a lot of laydowns. The bass were hanging just off the shallow banks. I caught a couple of nice fish with one really getting airborne. One good size bluegill caught by Carol. Tried a number of shallow crankbaits along with other spinnerbaits for no fish. There were a lot of boats out on the water but I didn't see another fish caught. Other fisho's that passed us on terra firma had fished for a lot longer for no return. The wind was constantly blowing from the SW at a good rate of knots.
