Yeah, ice is gone. Didn't notice any dead fish on the beach with heavy winds blowing directly towards it.

Is the ice all gone yet? I was thinking about stopping by to try for some Crappie. Also, does anyone know how the fish population is doing? I fish out of a kayak, so a lake this size is nice for me. I just hope that everything hasn't died again >.<

The thick ice has always been the problem with pell lake. if the oxygen pump isn't put in the lake, and we get a nasty winter, the oxygen gets burnt up. resulting in the big die offs. Used to live near pell lake, moved up north now. it's a shame to hear it died off again last winter. it needs that air pump every winter for there to be any chance for them.. I will say this though... most people know about the abundant pell lake dink bluegills. about 5 or 6 years ago when pell lake died off, it was the best thing that ever happened to the lake. the few fish that did survive were given the chance to have some substantial growth the following year. we caught many bluegills that year in the 8 to 9 inch range, with a couple pushing 10 inches. I never thought that would happen here. Also, the crappie fishing was excellent too. lots of crappies in the 9 to 12 inch range with some that were 13-14 inches. I think that year and the year following I fished pell lake more than any other lake for panfish.

here's what I would recommend, come early spring after the thaw, go to the channel and try for them gills and crappies, and see what happens.if you catch some biggins, it's probably going to be a year worth fishing there. a lot of guys don't believe me, but it was true. and it was awesome.

Was it the Cold winter or bad lake conditions (Weeds etc...) that killed off the fish? I have read about the weeds being very bad here. Guessing this lake is not going to be that good for Ice fishing this winter.

Fishing is really bad lost I'd say 95 percent of fish this last winter there is an association formed just started this spring we are trying to get as many people to volunteer time for clean up and we are open to any ideas thanks

Took the knuckleheads down to the lake to fetch the dummie and swim. (My wife was with but I can't call her a knucklehead or a dummie! She gets mad!) Ran into a couple of guys loading their boat and they said they never had a bite. Doesn't look good. I heard they have formed a lake association this spring. I don't know any details about it but I guess it's a start. If anyone knows anything about the lake please inform!
