Hey all,

Water temp around 70 and weeds starting to fill in. Got out yesterday and boated 7 snakes 2 big largemouth, 1 keeper gill and 10 nice perch.

First time up here with family since we went for years as kids. We are staying in the northeast corner of the lake. Can anyone post or pm any tips as we get some limited fishing time in this week? Ideally fishing for eyes and pike but anything is fine. Willing to trade tips for fishing in Milwaukee or take anyone out for free ice fishing in the harbor for browns. Thanks in advance!

Coming up for the weekend. Didn’t get up here at all last summer due to work and a crazy now-ex girlfriend who made it hard to get away on weekends.  I’m very excited to fish my favorite childhood lake for the first time in over a year. Does anyone have a report for panfish and bass?

Wow. 

while patterns changed, I thought 2017 was some of the best fishing on this lake in years. I live nearby and fish several lakes. Many local  lakes had less vegetation last year

I was up there in July for a week and I can say first hand they killed off most of the weeds in the lake. I had a hard time finding anything green. Every time I brought up the anchor tins of brown dead weeds. Worst week of fishing I've had in the 15 years of going up to that week.

ICE SHACK RENTAL???

A group of friends and I have an ice fishing trip planned for February 7-11 and we will be staying on Lost Lake. We would love to have nice permanent shack to to use. Is there anyone on here that would be interested in renting out their shack for a few days or know of any places that rent them? We have all our own fishing gear, but looking for something comfortable for 6 or so people to fish and hang out in that will be nicer than using our portable shacks.

Thanks for any help!

MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

CONDITIONS
Sunny

ICE DEPTH
10 inches

AIR TEMP
0° - 5° F

Fished the west bay on January 3rd, 4th and 5th.  Drove out from private property off of Hwy 155.  Ice was about 10" with about 4 inches of snow.  Moving east towards the main lake, there was a substantial amount of slush and the ice was about 8".  Not safe for a vehicle in my opinion.  We caught small pike consistently throughout the day until about 2:00 PM.  Stayed out until 6:30 each evening targeting walleyes with no success.  9 tip ups set from 7' out to 12'.  Camera showed sparse, but healthy weeds.  I was told (unverified) that the area was treated for milfoil in the recent past.

MOON PHASE (6%)
Waning Crescent

CONDITIONS
Snowing

ICE DEPTH
1 inches

AIR TEMP
11° - 15° F

Use EXTREME CAUTION on Lost.  Tons of snow on ice.  Before the snow there was a very sketchy area in basically the majority of the main basin.

Hauled a shanty out on a solid 6" but when popping holes out in area that was previously sketchy we got a scary 1" thick surprise. With all the snow on top I fear this is a recipe for disaster and am sure it isn't unique to Lost this year.  Just be careful, if venturing out and you see the shanty the area to the west of it is the problem area.

As for fishing. It was really slow with only a couple small pike to show for our efforts.

Found about 5 inches on the bay to the left of the boat landing. Last Saturday. Looked kinda shakey out further, so we stayed in the bay. Fishing was slow only a few perch.
