Lake hasn't been sprayed for more than 7 years. Not even the shoreline's. Lack of weeds is due to the over population of carp and shad.  They dirty up the water so there is no sunlight getting to the weeds. Amey pond is clear so that's where the weeds are.  Lake has been clearer than normal (least clearer than has been recent years.  More carp/shad will be taken out this summer.  Only 1/4 of what was taken out last spring was taken out this spring. Guess the contract the netters had was lot lower.

My guess it's caused by manure from the creek.

Years back you had to stay in the bouy area or channel cause the weeds were so bad. What happened to the weeds? Did they start spraying? Could the black crappie sarcoma be from chemicals?

Not VHS it's black crappie sarcoma. Little is known about it or if they are safe to eat according to the DNR.

Fished 5/12 and 5/13. Some crappies but almost all of them had the virus. Too bad they are nice fish. Weeds look to be growing again.

Fished Thursday AM. Water 50 when starting at 8 and 58 by 11!  Saw one other boat. No bites for 1.5 hours looking for crappies in three spots. Then I found one pocket of weeds and caught and kept 7. All nice up to 12 inches on minnows. No smalls, no gills... don't get the feeling like the lake has numbers right now. Last week they harvested tons..yes tons of carp again. Shad still big issue too. Lake needs weed cover to improve hatches and clarity. Lake has sure changed. Treat her well!

Fished last two days Crappies were hungry! Most were caught in the old creek channel towards the west. Perch were spawning last week, caught lot of nice size females. All released of course. Caught some nice gills as well.  Please remember gill numbers are low according to the last dnr netting. No need to keep your limit. Especially the bigger ones. Let them spawn this year.
