As for the fishing, we had an ok day with undersized pike and walleyes on tip-ups. Biggest pike was 25" (with most under 20") and biggest walleye was 13". Nothing jigging although I marked quite a few fish.

We had fun here, tough on size but was a nice time for a Saturday and not having to deal with yahoo's. Tight lines all!

Be careful though because once you get towards the middle and the deep end of the lake the ice is only 3.5 inches and it's supposed to be near 50 degrees Sunday and Monday.
The first time I fished Pretty lake was maybe 17 years ago. I caught more crappies than I bothered counting. None were what I considered worth keeping.
I have fished it several times since then with roughly the same results. That,over almost 2 decades. That lake does not get pounded. There just isn't the panfish harvest of other comparably-sized area lakes.
I have a friend who lives on Pretty Lake Road just across the street from the lake. He doesn't bother panfishing there. Too many,too small.
I'm no biologist but IMO,the lake's crappies could BENEFIT from harvest. Leave the predator fish in the lake.
That said,I personally wouldn't post a picture of a 2 man limit of those fish. It could (hypothetically) be a lake the WDNR is going to poison and has opened to unlimited harvest. Someone on the internet would STILL criticize the size and amount of fish kept.
That ALL said,this attitude is what is going to get us a statewide panfish limit of 10 fish: "DID U PAY FOR THE BAIT THE GAS I WILL ALWAYS KEEP MY LIMIT"
