I put in a solid couple of hours on the water to see if Lilly was going to be worth fishing this ice season or not. Unsurprisingly, between my tip ups and jigging rod I was only able to land one 5" perch. Nothing worth catching. I didn't see anyone catch anything else while I was out. If you're going after pike, this lake might be worth fishing. Otherwise, there are plenty of other lakes down in Calumet and Manitowoc counties with much healthier bass/panfish fisheries than this one. 

Good luck this ice season and stay safe

I have not had much luck in the summer in this lake but through the ice I normally manage a few decent(22-25 inch) Pike every year. I have caught many small panfish but nothing worth keeping.  Last year I did see a guy pull up a 12 inch crappie but that is the only panfish I have ever seen come out of this lake that was of any size.  I am hoping some of them put on some size in the last couple years.  I guess I will see maybe this weekend if the ice is thick enough.

Is this lake worth fishing yet even? With the die offa couple yrs back has there been any growth yet in tbe fish? Was there last spring amd every fish you say by the dock were just tiny.  Its close to home so i would like to try it when they get big enough

Thanks Ship, I knew there were some just unsure of exact location.  I only went off shore about 4 feet before I decided it should wait another week or 2.

Decided to take a chance and go look at the lake this evening after work.  Pointed the lights at the lake to see if anyone had been out.  Did not see anything.  Went out about 4 or 5 feet from the shore and stomped my foot on the ice.  (because in my great wisdom I forgot my spud bar at home)  Heard a healthy crack and decided not to tempt it.  One more week and there should be better ice provided mother nature helps out.

Was out from 8 to 10 this morning. Ice was around 20". I caught a bunch of tiny perch and lost a few sold hits jigging waxies and spikes. Fish were suspended 5 or so feet off the bottom.

Was out today for the morning.  Fished tip ups as I have not had much luck jigging in this lake.  Caught 5 northern threw all but 2 back.  Lost a really nice northern right in the hole.  Biggest I've seen to date in this lake. Estimate it was between 28 and 32 inches.  Used a camera on every hole I drilled all I saw were small perch about 3 inches or so. There were quite a few though so maybe they will be bigger in years to come.
