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.

Fished 8am -4pm 8 flags yielded 5 fish all northern. One keeper size but all were sent back swimming. Perfect day to be out on the ice. With now snow pack ice creepers are a must right now. Tight lines.

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!

Hey Clay, what type of bait did you use on your tip ups? What depth did you fish?

Fished on 12th of January after school, had no luck. Strictly fished tip-ups it was too cold to jig. Brought a hand auger thinking that 4-5" of ice would be no big deal but arrived to find the ice was a solid 7" thick.
