There is no public access to Lake Content that I’m aware of. The channel does not freeze so that’s not an option.

I don’t think you can access it. That’s what I’m told (open water in front of the channel). Unless there’s no snow on the ice, that would be a heck of a hike. I’m guessing over a mile from Fibbers. Later in January you could drive around, but no guarantees.
Maybe someone will correct me, but I have been told (bro lives in St G) it is inaccessible.

Like your post Musky Ben , you made Very Good points for both sides of the previous post. I can't speak for Rob as a guide , never with out with him . Gare on the other hand is a great family friend and have fish with him few times and had a blast, wife usually kicks my butt when fishing with him . Not saying one guide is better than the other , but social media being what it is , people tend to post bad experiences pretty quick as well as the good experiences. There is my last 2 cents on the issue
I always find it interesting... the bashing of the guide... They have a bad day every now and again... That's fishing!!! I know he works hard for his people and yes he will ask if you're staying with him, before he answers a lot of questions... stopping by the bar to have a drink or two, ask questions about Gillespie or just plain talk about him and his show regarding his loud boistrous antics doesn't put a great light on you. He will generally ask or even know that your day or half day wasn't very good and generally will try to book ya another half day on him if he feels that way about the day and has the time to do so.
Fishing one to two trips per day, cutting the grass, bartending, hosting, clearing tables, thinking about the person who he thinks didn't have a good day weigh on a guy's mind. Now while he may having been a birthday moment and forgot about who he was with one day out of the year is no excuse, had you mentioned the fact at the end of the trip, maybe he'd known how you felt about your experience.
The fact that he didn't want to fish for crappies probably stemmed from the fact that the population took a pretty big hit and he didn't want to add to the problem by beating up on what was left.
As for Gare, he was getting bashed on his normal lake page too... imagine that.
