If you don't know the lake, I would say NO.

I am over by Norms Hideaway and have never driven on the lake. Is it safe for me right now to take my SUV out there to show my wife the ice fishing/

In the lake Master Tommy’s eyes it’s better then it’s ever been.  However everybody else knows the real story.

You are spot on. Over harvesting back then hurt the walleye and crappie population bad. People really need to realease the bigger eyes. I would love to see a slot limit. I don't know if the pan fishing will ever be as good as it was back in the late 80's early 90's

Anybody who thinks this lake is better off then the 80’s-mid 90’s is clueless.  The amount and size of the walleyes in nothing like it used to be.  In 1993 I caught 15 walleyes over 28 inches.  This lake is lucky to see that amount of big fish caught by all its anglers a year now.  It was easy to go out and catch 10-15 legal walleyes a day.  Still good but no where close to that today.

     The crappie population is a shell of what it was back then.  There were hundreds of guys icefishing daily at several ice spots catching great bags daily.  The perch population was so much greater then it’s not even comparable.  Heck even the bluegill population was as good as it is now!  So mr tommy I’d say you didn’t fish the lake then or have a very poor memory of how much better the fishing was.  The water drawdown is bad for the pike spawning because the areas they spawn are routinely out of water with the low over winter water level.  

    There really is no debating these facts ask any old timer about the lake.  Every one bit tommy will have a different story.  I also am sick at the level of the lake this winter.  The biomass of a watershed is controlled by its food and moving river systems can’t be compared to a traditional lake or pond.  The rock system has more food in aquatics and minnows then the fish can eat.  This is confirmed by the DNR personnel themselves.  Your analogy is a failed attempt to justify poor management.

What a shame.  I saw the gills floating up in the holes during the warm spell.  Thought maybe some guys were just rough handling them.  This is sad to hear.
