Average size of the gills is just that....average. I think we got one that was pushing 7" but other than that they were mostly 4-5". I definitely wouldn't classify Fowler as a trophy panfish lake.

Glad you & your kids had fun. What were the average sizes of gills & pumpkins in fowler? Last time I visited the lake they were around the 5 inch mark. I know the gills in LLB are bigger in size, I caught a personal best there. I'm still in search of a 10+ inch gill this year.

Took my kids to Fowler today after our first lake of choice was full at the launch. I stink at backing up our trailer so the tight quarters of the launch in between a bunch of construction equipment was annoying. Fish were hard to find for the kids with any consistency until we went under the bridge. Ended up catching a 21" walleye on a senko of all things! A personal best for me. Kids caught a couple largemouth along with rock bass and bluegills. Fun day on the water!

Yep, them Fowler crappie can be hit or miss. Lake is two min from my house. Sometimes find em in an hour and catch a couple meals worth. Other days I have searched for hrs and got not a one. They are in there somewhere, I guarantee you that. Early spring they can be in the swamp back by the cemetery. Summer the suspend at 20 ft a lot off church point. This time of the year they can be anywhere

I was speaking of the Smokeys in downtown Pewaukee.

Smokeys Musky Shop (Waterfront Bar launch) closes every winter and opens back up in April.  Smokeys Bait Shop (East end near beach) was sold.  Two different locations.  Hope that clears some of that up.

Actually, Smokeys has been sold the the Pewaukee Dept of Recreation, who has leased it out to a private concern. They will again have the bait shop open , but they are more interested in renting canoes and kayaks and pontoon boats. Their posted opening hours last summer for the bait shop was 7:00 A.M which made me chuckle, not exactly great for the serious fisherman. You will be able to launch there too. Last year the fee was $7.00. Hope this helps.
