Mad for Labs.

The "rock Wall" water and oxygen flow theory is the most widely accepted and ONLY theory I have heard or know of. I too decades ago use to love fishing it. Not since the rock wall though!

Friends andI used to ice fish Partridge Lake a ton back when I was in HS, College and a few years beyond ( in other words, a LONG time ago). Fishing was outstanding. Pike in size and numbers, great bluegill fishing and perch when you found them. Slowly but surely, the lake just went dead. It seemed like the dynamics of the lake just changed when the rock wall went in on the river. My theory is that the fresh water flushing thru the lake from the river diminished to the point where the lake just didn't support fish the way it did previously. Years ago, the lake used to be very weedy whereas now it's just a big mud bowl with little aquatic vegetation compared to the "old days". Why this is the case, I couldn't begin to speculate.

I'd be most interested in hearing what caused the decline of this formerly great fishery. I've never seen any comment/info from DNR fisheries on the state of this lake.

Beast Fishing. Partridge is CERTAINLY not what it use to be. That being said. I use to fish it years ago when it was great for Panfish AND Large Northern. I alway's used electronics. Your electronics are rarely gonna pick up fish when you only have 3 ft of water below you ----AT BEST!  That part hasn't changed. Many outings on Partridge, you don't mark fish until you start jigging them up first.

This is the only lake this year that i have not marked at least a single fish on my sonar... My first time trying it and i only moved about 5 times before i got out of there. I was mostly on the middle to east area of the lake and then tried moving closer to channel, just dead..

Maiden voyage to Partridge this year. Fished with my brother for Pike for 4 hours  on Northeast side of lake. Not a flag no others fishing this seasonally good area at all. Not looking good ice was great and both landings were as well.

Out right now. Lots of good solid ice!  Still didnt drive the truck out. Took the sled and Went all the way to the north end of the lake and still havent had a bit. Lots of people moving around. Must have to chase the schools of fish around. Rosey reds is the go to bait from what i was told. The large group of people were pretty close to Jellystone shoreline.
