Sure hope the eyes you kept were bigger than the ones in the pics.... considering the new regs in Waukesha county are 3 walleyes over 18”

11° - 15° F

As the cold weather moves in and the ice begins to build, flags were flying today.  We ended up 4/10 with 3 Walleye and a Northern.  Lots of drops  but did manage a few legal eyes.  Travel was good on the ice.

Fished from 9:00-2:00. Walked a good 30 minutes west around the point from Curley's. Set up tip ups and jigged in 12-16fow. Jigging was unproductive with only one small perch. Had a flag around 10 which turned out to be a musky that broke off at the hole. Another flag around noon was a small musky that was landed and released. That was it for the day except another long walk back in.

Cruisinman the access that you have circled is deeded lake access for residents of that area if I’m thinking of the correct spot. There is not any parking I know that for sure.

Vegas492 sounds like you need some hole cover insulators. Fleet Farm and Dick Smiths sell them. It really helps with ice up and slushing.

Cruising man,

Yes there is a public launch with parking on the west side off of Cty E or Maple ave. Check Google maps.

Hi all, looking for a little info. On the DNR map, north west side of lake, it has an access marking (see picture below). I’ve been through a ton of past reports, but didn’t see any info. It looks to me on the satellite view that that’s all private land over there. Anyone know if that is actually public access? If so, is there parking there? If not, is there somewhere on the north shore that I could walk out from? Feel free to pm. 

I’m planning on fishing this weekend. Not sure quite where I’ll be yet, still deciding. I’ll be in an older Clam Fish Trap Guide 2 man flip over, and I’ll have 3 Beaver Dams and a Pink Frabil out in front of me. Feel free to stop and say hi if you see me.

I took my wife out for an evening trip on Saturday.  Had a blast running for flags.  It was a great night to be out, highlighted by a 37 inch pike that is still swimming.

Ice was about 7-8 inches where we were at...east end.  Holes were freezing and slushing up fast.  Had to check them every 10 minutes or so.

I'll tell everything this...for an ice report.  If you do not know the lake, or have not checked the lake multiple times in a week, if you go out, stay straight out from Smokeys launch.  You will see a line of shacks near the island.  Stay on that line and you are very safe.  Deviate to the east (right) and you will be in trouble.  That crack had a ton of open water a few days ago.  It may be iced now, but it won't be thick and you could be in trouble.  If you take that line straight out and go past the island a hundred yards or so, then you can deviate east (right) and be safe.

Same holds true if you enter the narrows or try to hit the old Waukesha Beach area.  You could have driven a boat from the north shore to SportsDock last week.  Again, it may be iced now, but it won't be safe.

There is no secret spot.  Punch holes, find a weed edge and fish.  There are walleyes everywhere now, thanks to Walleyes for Tomorrow and the DNR.  It is tons of fun.  So....be safe....use that line from Smokeys and all is good.  And after this week?  Should be all so much better.

Be safe out there, PM me if you have questions, I'm happy to help with how to get out there safely.
