Set tipups in the middle of the lake, and also was jigging with a Swedish Pimple with a minnow head for Pike.

One flag, but didn't ice the fish. Did ice a 16" Pike on my Beaver Dam Carbon fiber jigging rod.

There were a couple of other guys out on the lake simultaneously. They caught a bass and a pike. Didn't get info on size.

This little lake is very hard to get my canoe to, but is generally reliable in the fall for active fish.

Yesterday I fished from 7 to 11 and was rewarded for the effort.

Four pike with. 3 of 25 or 26 inches, caught on swim jig or plastic frog in 4 to 6 FOW.

More noteworthy were the bass. Two 10s, an 8 and a 14 on a popper. Also got an 18.25 on the plastic frog and a 19.5 on the swim jig.

All still swimming.

I went and tried out this lake from 5-9:30am on Sunday. Plenty of weed growth and lilly pads already, as expected. Caught 1 keeper bass on a swim jig and some small crappie and bluegill on mini-mites. Not much action otherwise, and didn't even see that many fish. 2-3 other kayaks canoes out today.

Was out from 11:00a.m. to 3:00p.m.

Took the wife out for the first time in her life.

First time on this lake and it was slow for us.

Got a few pointers from another guy on the lake about where to go on the lake next time I'm out. (He was trying another location for the 1st time).

He caught a 22" and 24" snake plus a LMB. Slow for him also.

Was out this afternoon from 2p - 4:30p and was real slow - had some bites on minnows and wax worms, one was big enough to break my line. More people than I expected were on the ice, 6-7 others were out when we arrived.

I used large shinners with med. sized treble hooks. Fished about 6ft of water. Hope this helps on what not to try!
