Is there a fee for launching on Golden?  If so, how much?  And is there a yearly pass?

It's been over 25 years since zebra mussels found their way into inland lakes in Wisconsin. 

They were reportedly introduced into Eagle Springs Lake deliberately by an avid water skier, because they clear the water so much. If I remember correctly, one zebra mussel can filter a litre of water per day, of micro-organisms. And when you have a colony of several million, that's a lot of removal at the base of the food chain. 

There is no stopping it now. Same thing with Eurasian Water Milfoil. And the thing about that, is that 90% of EWMs reproduction, is via fragmentation. So cutting it just helps it reproduce.

Just saw the post for June 11 today, September 27 while checking what's happening on Golden. Can't believe nobody said anything about all the damn zebra's on the rod & reel. Again another boat not checked before dragging them in from lake Michigan. It's bad enough they've messed up the big pond but now they're into our inland lakes! Pulled up a lost anchor from the bottom of Nagawicka about seven years ago and it also was covered in zebra's. Come on you guys who fish lake Michigan. Please check for debrie on your boat bottoms and trailers. It goes without saying! These mussels will and probably already have covered the bottom of Golden lake and are filtering the bottom of the food chain right out of the lake.

Hey all!!  Sea Plehn here,  We were on the lake the friday before Labor Day. My ma caught a 21" largemouth on a big jointed creek chub pike. We catch more bass and pike on creek chubs more than any other bait on this lake.......

Throw a Zaraspook and you will tear them up when they are busting bait on the surface.

Another decent day (for me) out on the water. Fished from 5-9am and caught 4 bass 13-15". I caught them all on senkos, and all are still swimming. I swear if I was actually good at fishing and caught more than about a fish an hour, I'd never want to do anything else!


2nd time I've been out on this lake and both times there were bass and pike chasing minnows and jumping like crazy right as the sun came up. Heck if I can get them to bite though.
