Was there last weekend for about 3-4 hours and didn't get anything worth keeping. Tiny bluegills.

Was out yesturday, a summer kill makes sense to me now since I didn't see nowhere as many fish on the camera that I have in the past. And had to use alot of finesse to get them. I agree catch and release is needed. This is mainly a winter lake for me, let's make it a quality lake again. The ice was 4 to 5" of clear ice with a couple inches of slush on top. Made me pucker a couple of times breaking through the slush but solid underneath lol.
Tight lines and be safe.
There was a big die this summer. They sprayed the lake with weed killer when the surface temps were over 80. There were a lot of bass and crappie washed up on the shore. This combined with over harvest several years in a row a few winters ago when they ran ice fishing derbies out here the panfish are very stunted. Lake is definitely going through a down cycle last 2 years. Please practice selective harvest on the panfish this winter! This is only a 150 acre lake.
