Going to be up in this area for the weekend and plan to fish around for the first time on Hilbert. Any suggestions? 


Thanks.

Curious if there is any word on the ice conditions. Making the trip up for Easter and wondering if we should re pack the ice gear for one last outing.

AL...your best bet in my experience is another lake...I've run into some nice crappie on Hilbert but only in sporadic areas around cribs and brush piles adjacent to deeper water. I know other locals catch them and a few scattered perch in the first lake not far out from the boat launch in the center hole of weeds in that part of the lake as well.

Went out Saturday for some early season big mouths and gills and had a blast. Gills didn't really hit the beds yet...only saw 3 yes 3 beds on entire 1st/2nd lake for gills. A few scattered bass on beds but lots of fun activity in shallow-mid depth (10') shoreline waters. Caught a mix of about 25 large- and smallmouth bass in about 6 hours on the lake...only 2 of which were under 14". Lake looks like it has one heck of a healthy smallmouth population. Lots of pictures and fun fish on that are still out there swimming and a small take of gills around 8"-8.5" for the pan.

The flurries of activity hit harder as the sun would shine through which seemed to really activate the fish...very little weed growth in anything less than 12' of water.

The family and I are heading up to Goodman over memorial day and we have never fished Hilbert before. Any tips on where to get started for crappie or perch or which of the 3 lakes to start on?

Thanks a lot!

They used to sit on the cribs in Georges Bay and pound, pound, pound. Oh what fun it was cleaning basket after basket of bluegills. Now they are crying that theres no fish. Please practice self control and Catch n Release!

Went out and battled the blustery winds on Saturday. Found a few largemouth cruising the mid-depth shallows on post spawn feeding. Did a little CPR on a couple fun Smallmouth as well. Looks like a healthy bass population here again this year. Plucked out 14 nice bluegills between 7.75 - 9.25" as well. Cool

Lake water levels remain very low through much of the first to second lake channel and extend into much of first lake. Be careful navigating out there!

Fished saturday afternoon till dark. Only managed three tip ups which were all norther pike. No bluegill caught but caught dinkier perch. Fished rock pile on east end of lake in 12 ft of water. Better luck next time. People are driving on ice Sad
