I think it's on the south side of the lake. I've never been there but I think the parking lot is a block or two away from the actual launch (at least, that's the way it looks on Google Earth).

Quiet thread deserves a summer report :)

Attempted a froggin' trip to Keesus and had a tough go of it getting the blowups to fully grab the baits.

The last couple hours we decided to switch to finesse tactics after admitting the exhilarating blowups were just not to be on the day.

Once we stopped being stubborn it seemed as if every main lake point leading into the Southwestern Bays as well as the secondary points just inside the Bays held numbers of 11-14" class largemouth. Wore them out for a couple hours on Berkley Beat Shads and then called it a trip.

This pattern would be a great one to get kids hooked. Give it a try as it will probably hold with this warm weather.

Reminder the lake is currently No Wake due to high water.

Only safe ice was to the left of the boat ramp 7-8".  Straight out from ramp did not look to be safe yet.  Nothing on tip ups w med shiners in the bay to the left.  Marked stuff jigging but no bites on small jigs w/waxies, sm minnows, puppet minnow got lots of looks but no bites. Out from 2:15 to dusk...

When did LL stop being fishing Reports. Half the 'reports' are asking ice, where to fish questions.

live2fish, why be an a**? It was just a safety question. Grow up man. As for ice thickness, I haven't been out here yet. I have been on other area lakes. The ice was variable when the snow was here. Seems more consistent now that it has melted. Deeper water will have less ice. Safe travels. Just be smart if you don't have a spud bar.
