Fished this afternoon, jigged and had tip downs out. No action on the tip downs. Caught 10 small panfish. Pretty slow compared to how it's been this year. Might have to make a move with the permanent shack. Can't complain however, got my 2 year old son out and he was entertained with the little fish. As safety dude said, north Landing weathered the warm snap pretty good. I was able to get to the shack without any problems. BIG THANKS to the guy who plows this lake! I believe it is otter lake bait? They will definitely get my business.

Drove in on south end yesterday really bad condition. Water and slush almost got stuck. The bait shop posted warning this morning not to drive on south end, dangerous holes developed under slush. North end was OK last night but with the warm Temps today not going to risk it. Entire lake had standing water and slush.
As for fishing caught 33in northern, and 9in bluegill nothing else was biting.

Stopped by otter after fishing miller dam all morning. i just went out off the south landing to mess around a while. caught a ton of dink perch and a few crappie. nothing of size. The south end of the lake is really soupy. there was an inch or two of water under the snow ever where i went. I did talk to the guys that plow and they said the north end is plowed heading south, but they had to stop due to the water/snow weight on the south end. From what i understand the ice is in good shape once youre north of the aerators on the south end.
Thanks, I never knew that and Stanley is my hometown and grew up there. I knew most of the Brown's around the area, but it's funny I never heard or knew it was named by him. I'll have to ask the old history nut, my Dad.
Was out on Brown, lol, again last night. Met up with MasonB from here on LL. Fish with you any day Mason except I won't follow you off a lake at night even if you do have a GPS!! Lol, Mason got a little lost leaving last night and I had to go hunt him down.
A lot of sorting again on Gills and Crappies, with it seemed again the bigger one's biting better just before dark. I did catch one 11-12" Crappie after dark, so maybe that's why some of the permanent shack lights are still on when I left. I know some have always liked trying soaking minnows after dark for Crappies on there along with tip-ups out for Walleyes.
