The owner is down in Florida with a return date in May, so I'll let you know then.

Does anyone know what the rates are for boat rentals?

Much better than I thought. 8 or 9 inches everywhere I checked and its still clear and pretty hard. Obviously there are some bad areas along the shore and where people drilled holes before the rain.

How was the ice? I'm still hoping to get out a few more times this season.

Fished with my boy by the dam. I caught 3 bluegill and 1 crappie. All were small. The wind was brutal. We brought out pop up Hut but decided not to use it because of the wind. We only stayed for about an hour. The ice was 7 inches but there were some hole with spider cracks that we avoided. Looked like there was some open water out in the middle southwest of the boat ramp. That's usually the last place to freeze over.

Todd's Tackle located in Thomson on Rt 84 2 blocks North of Casey's on East side of the road.  They have minnows and live bait along with a wide range of tackle.  This would be your best option only about 15 miles from park.  Best route from state park would be to go North on Rt 78 to Thomson Rd and go West into Thomson.  When you get minnows I don't think he even counts them, I think if you order a dozen he gives a lot more.

No. It's only open during the warm water season. Now that R & R has left the area, the bait shop scene is pretty dismal around here.  My last minnow run ended 35 minutes away form home in Savanna.

Not a fishing report, just a question. I am new to the area and was wondering if there is an open baitshop in the area of the lake at this time of the year. I know the previous post mentions a baitshop, I would presume that it is on the lake. Is that open this time of year? Thanks.

Drove out to the lake to check the ice. There was 6 inches by the bait shop. As we were leaving I saw two guys with a pop up setting up to fish out a little further. Me and my 12 year son will be fishing tomorrow in our pop up. Yay!
