I'm looking at buying some lake property on Peppermill. I've never fished it before. Can anyone give me just general information? I'm mainly wondering about weed growth and how choked out the lake gets. Is it relatively fishable or does it get overgrown in the summer? Do I need to worry about fish kill or is the general consensus that the aerators have taken care of it? How about ice fishing? Thanks in advance, I really appreciate it.
Clear as glass. This lake must be treated for weeds or something, because the amount of weed growth seems small for such a shallow lake.
Use caution in the West end, especially the North shore. The ice can be very thin due to ground and underground springs. The West end always has thin ice.
Regarding the fish-kill: The nitwits running the Peppermill Lake District moved the East-end aerator from a site that aeration experts selected to the present site. Shame on them and the DNR for allowing it.
