It will be interesting to see how the ice fishing will be this year. The lake had a severe winter kill last year,saw a lot of bass, gills,crappies and some northerns floating after ice out. Caught some northerns in the summer, but not many bass. Gills, crappie and perch aren't at the numbers they were. Maybe the kill was a good thing since panfish were over-populating. Please be mindful of that and practice catch and release so we can restock for the future. Thanks, Bruce Cool

Island lake is a small 40 acre lake. It is a private lake and guests and members of Captain's Cove campground and resort have access. The lake does get a lot of fishing pressure during the winter. It is a great place to bring kids out ice fishing. Last weekend there must have been 25-30 people out fishing. Please be mindful of the size of the lake. Please practice catch, photo, release (CPR). Take the few that you intend to eat or the ones that get hooked bad. Please conserve this little lake. Thanks!

Had lots of success using a skirted jig along the shorelines and in the shallows behind the island. Hit the trees and deadfalls but be prepared for lots of snags, but the fishing is good.

GB, Sorry but I honestly can't answer your question. We rented a place at Captains Cove Resort. Not even sure if they had a boat landing or not? Right on the water so we just drove our atv's onto the lake from in front of our room. I would think it would be an awesome little lake for Kayaking? Only info we could find online was here at Lake Link. Island Lake (Little) Stats:

Yah Hey,

I work in the Shawano area and have never heard of this lake. Would it be a nice one to try out with my kayak in the spring? Does it have public access? Thanks in advance for for any info!! Big Smile

Had tons of fun fishing Saturday. Had the camera down and saw tons of bluegills and crappies. Lots of lookers, some takers and occasional Northern swimming around the camera. Threw everything back. Had several flags with a few hammer handles on them. Threw them back too. Nice little lake!
