CONDITIONS
Cloudy

ICE DEPTH
13 inches

AIR TEMP
21° - 25° F

Three of us went out yesterday (01/07/18) from 8a-5p to the north end of the lake. Steady flags all day (19 fish caught between 3 people). Biggest was a 27" pike and the rest were between 24-26". Although nothing to write home about, was a good day of chasing flags. Not much on the jig, only managed 3 small crappies (5") and a few small perch (about 15-20' FOW). No keepers. Panfish weren't really biting all day. Ice is about 13" and still forming. Lot of pop-ups and people out there, lake was busy. No cars/trucks out though.

Chased Flags here a couple times last year. Caught a few nice sized bass on the biggest suckers I’ve ever used. Just wondering if there are any northern with some size to them in this lake? Only caught snakes. Everything i catch goes back in, but love hooking into slobs.

There is no fee. However the only public access is the boat launch off of Hwy L

Thinking of fishing the lake for the first time and just want to know if there is a fee to park. That's it.

Pops  to the right of. The launch is a little bay,disregard it.walk straight out and bare to the right for maybe 1 1/2 blocks. Maybe the structure (s) are a different color now. Don’t put your holes close to the lantern, off to the side maybe 10 ft. Good luck.  CARPIO

10 years ago there used to be average crappies (8-9.5)in there  lots of them... due to the typical  abuse and double limiting they were removed within a couple years since then has been stunted. Pike have always been super small with an occasional average size 1. Decent for kids cuz you get a lot of flags or at least you used to I stopped fishing it as it is not a quality Fishery in my opinion. There are nice largemouth bass in there

Carpio where are these grey buildings in relation to the boat launch? My Dad and I tried this lake years ago early ice but didn' get to far due to thin ice.


I Have heard a lot about this lake and want to give it a try. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Try fishing for crappies around 6 pm on the east side off of the grey buildings in about 14’ water. 25 yrs ago I used to go there, always had good fishing but NEVER before 6 pm. ( I’m talking fishing in January)  many times they will suspend 5’ down under your lantern. It doesn’t hurt to try.  Please post results. CARPIO.
