TTfisherman127, Yeah, you can fish by the launch. I've fished around there a few times before, but I would pass it up and fish somewhere else. All I would catch are VERY small stunted panfish. If you're lucky you might possibly catch a bass or pike swimming around. They're probably gonna be very small too though, in matter of fact I caught my smallest bass ever there, it was literally 2 inches. Go to fowler, lac la belle, or little muskego, for better shore fishing. This lake is okay though on a boat.
TT fisherman- I've personally never tried shore fishing from the launch-the bay that you launch in is pretty shallow. I've seen people almost every time I'm leaving the launch bay out on the point off the left side just where the boats leave the bay and enter the main lake. Always see people fishing there with floats- dunno if they do any good - usually just looks like people trying to get out and enjoy the day. Father son stuff

Went out for about 4 hours today. Nothing around the island. Nothing in the kettle. Marked some but you have to find the warmer water. I think the pan fish bite is pretty finicky at the moment.

Started day in kettle at around 11 pm fish for 3 hours not a bite. Went to channels outside of kettle on West side water was down only 48 degrees and no fish. Kettle was 44 to 45. Went on main lake found some old weeds fish but all small.

I've spotlighted walleyes enough to have the opinion that those biggest carp stay deeper during most of the year and only come shallow to spawn. ...Some time around Memorial Day weekend - N end (including Bark "delta"),and St. Johns Bay
