Hi folks,

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.

Went out here for the first time yesterday with the wife and baby. Just messing around for about 45 minutes, but caught a bunch of small gills, a couple perch, a giant sunfish and a bass. Seems like a nice place to go with someone learning to fish. My wife even put her own worm on yesterday. She has no problem with the fish, just the worms.

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.

Stopped by on friday night. The shore was open about five feet to the ice. The bad news, There was so many dead gills and bass in the water you couldn't even try to count them. Some of the bass were 15 inches or more,very sad. I don't know what the rest of the shore line looks like if anybody has lake shore property and it looks like this let me know. Thanks CK187

There is currently about 16" of ice in the East end.

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.

Crappiekiller: About 120 6-8” native Muskies were stocked in 1987. Some 36 – 40” Muskies have been caught. Line-breakers were not uncommon. Young Muskies were hooked 3 years in a row indicating some successful spawning.

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.

Talk to Dnr today about both lakes. The smell is from weed and a fish die off from lack of oxygen.Now that aerators(NOT THE KIND THAT PULLS PLUGS OUT OF THE GROUND, MUSKYHUNT) are being turned on the smell is starting to move around. I recommend that any big fish be cpr'd. Also the dnr lists that there are Muskies in here I have never seen one has anyone else?Would like to know. Thanks ---ck187 Wondering

Hey greenheadhunter2 Check out my last report on mcginnis. The water from there is the same and I still haven't heard from the dnr yet. I even found the house it was coming from. I'm calling dnr back Tuesday. I fish the pep in the summer all the time. Mcginnis is what about 5 miles away maybe the sh -- ran down hill. The smell was horrible last friday. I always catch pike at the pep and always see pike at mcginnis even if the don't take a tip up.(On camera) On friday all of my tip-up bait died very fast in the water too. I'm also going out after snowstorm to check on things, most likely end up fishin parker. Let me know if you here any news? Thanks ck187

hey fish just seen your report me and a buddy fished here today i have always done excellent on northern here but not even one flag today we tried 2 different locations had out 6 boards and not a flag but the weird thing was we had little gills and perch coming up in our holes right to the surface and sitting there you could reach down and pick them up they would not dart away also when we put on our roaches they were dead within 30 minutes of being in the water and when you would chang out the minnows they and our tip-up line smelled like raw sewage so i do think this lake is having serious problems right now so the dnr may need to be contacted we are wondering if one of the home owners septic systems may be leaking into the lake Crying
