The pier by the boat launch off Andrews St does get pulled in winter, although its still in as of 10/20.

I think the water level does get dropped in winter, but only a few inches (if that).

2 questions.   Do they lower the lake for winter? When do they pull the pier?

Final bass tourney report for 2017:  It was yet another tough week of fishing.  Steve V. won with a 15 1/2".  Travis B and Frankie tied for second place with a 14 3/4".  Not big fish, but shows yet again that anyone is just one cast away from winning some money.

Big bass of the year went to Nick with a dandy 20 1/2".  Tom took second with a 19 5/8", and Mike S. took third with a 19 1/2".  

The fishing wasn't always the best, but everyone has a good time.  If you haven't been out before, think about giving it a try some Wednesday night next year.  Thanks to all for another good year!

No - not directly. There is a dam on Phantom. Below that is the Mukwonago River which then does dump into the Fox.  In many places below the Phantom Lake dam, the river is only around a foot deep.

Wednesday night bass tourney results.  Tough fishing with the front that came through.  Randy B won with a 15 1/2", Chuck took second with a 15", and Steve T took third with a 14 1/2".

This Wednesday (the 20th) is the last weekly tourney of the year.  With the days getting shorter, we will probably end early that night. The weekly winners will be paid out at the boat launch.  The big fish of the year prizes will be paid out at Sandy's Miller Time bar (on the corner up from the launch) immediately following the regular weekly tourney.  Reminder, anyone can win the weekly tourney, but to qualify for one of the big fish of the year places (we will pay 3 places) you have to have fished at least 10 of the 20 weeks this season.

Please use care when fishing around docks. Someone ruined my boat cover with a lure this week. 4 rips in what was a perfect cover.

Eailer this season my neighbours cover was torn by a lure. I saw it happen, chatted with them and they didn't think it mattered.

I don't want to come off sounding like a grumpy old man, but boat canvus is expensive!!! Thanks for your cooperation.

Wednesday night bass tournament results:  With the cold front conditions of north wind, overcast, cold and rain, it felt more like an episode of "Deadliest Catch" on the Bering Sea rather than a bass tourney on Phantom.  

The team of Tommy and Adam aboard the Northwestern (okay,.... a Triton) took all three places last night!  They weren't giants at 15 5/8", 15 1/2", and a 14 1/2", but those fish won them a pile of cash and a free cheeseburger basket from Sandy's Tavern.

We have two more weeks of fishing left - the last night is September 20.
