My son left his tackle tray either at the launch or at the swim area. If anyone found it we would appreciate getting it back. It is about an 8 X 10 or 12 Cabelas Tray, gray with green trim. It has a Milwaukee Goodland decal on the lid. There was also a Gray Milwaukee Bucks soft sided cooler along with it. This was left sometime in early June.
This is a fun lake to take people who want to catch fish and not be bored. Fished for about 2 hours with my wife Sunday from a canoe. Caught a bunch of small bass and bluegill. Nothing of size but We had so much fun we lost track of the time.
The shiners are a good source of food but it’s the trout that get the pike big. Hopefully people are putting the big pike back, this lake is more of a learning lake for young fishers IMO. Great place to catch just about anything and even better to show new fishers what fishing is all about.
MOON PHASE (89%)
Fished yesterday for a few hours. The center ice is nice and thick but the ice on the east side of the lake next to where the springs are was 8 inches and eroding. But even with the warm temps the ice was still freezing up.
I fish this lake for fun and caught tons of ding perch and gills and then in some weird luck I nailed a 12 inch pike on a tungston jig followed by a 9.5 perch and a 10. I put them all back. Talked to several people over the past few weeks catching some good pike and I know why. I actually caught five large shiners over 8 inches. That's some big food for them.
We were out on the ice for an hour or so this evening. The ice was about a foot thick. No luck fishing, but I did manage to lose a lens from my prescription glasses. Please let me know if by chance someone happens upon it. Thanks and good luck.
Like said I know that about ice. I almost took a video of it yesterday. It's such an oddity how loud it is. After 2 hours it went back to what was expected. Several cracks went through the area I was fishing.
I was kind of curious if the noise was affecting the fishing kind of like when someone drills a ton of holes and the fish shut off for a while. Either way I'll be back next weekend and if it's still making noise I'll take a video. Going on 10+ inches of ice I don't expect it.
