Hey Bigin: I have caught a lot of Gars in this lake over the years and It's always been in early June. I've landed quite a few but most of the time they usually end up breaking the line. I'm not sure if its post spawn, but they show up in large schools at that time and if your fishing with minnows or lures that imitate minnows there on the attack. Most of the gars I've seen have been found from the DNR launch all the way over to the beach anywhere from 6ft. out deeper cruising the weed lines. They put up a good fight and even better in your net or boat, those teeth are nasty. I have lost plenty of hooks and jigs to these critters, and even had to bandage up a couple of friends who got to close when they were thrashing around in the boat or trying to get them out of the net. I've been waiting for someone to pull one up through the ice. There are some big ones out there.  Stay safe:

You would have been laughing pretty hard had you seen it!!  Didn't have as much as a follow.  Tried every side of the lake and then deeper water.  Bugs or flies were terrible.  Not mosquitoes either, not sure what they were.

When we got all of that rain a few weeks ago a tree fell by the port-o jon and took out the lines powering the two light poles that are there.

Is it always pitch black at the public launch?  It took me 35 minutes to back up my trailer correctly.  I know I'm not good at launching and finishing but this would be hard for anyone.  Why isn't there a light there?

Have meant to post this for two weeks. Sorry. Found a landing net on the DNR launch dock. If you left one there, PM me and describe it and I will pay postage to mail it back to you.

Went out this morning from 6-9 had to deal with rain showers after 7am. Picked up 2 walleyes before 7 lost the first one next to the boat before I could get the net under him and the second one snapped the line just before he hit the top of the water, swam away with my jig. Both fish between 16 and 18 in. Caught them on 2" Fire tiger shad swim bait tipped with a small fathead. Managed 3 bass and a northern also. Fishing the weed edges from 12' out to 16'. Marking lots of fish out deeper also but could'nt get anything to take.A thunderstorm rolled in after 9, just as I got back to the launch, chased the other 4 boats in also to take shelter in there vehicles. Still better than a Day at work. Good Luck and Stay Safe.

Back out this morning on a Crappie hunt, took almost an hour to pull up the first one, marked a lot of fish, they just seemed tight lipped for a while. Found Crappies hanging tight in the weeds in 8fow and out deeper along some smaller areas of weeds. Needed some meat on the jigs today, used small fatheads, even managed a couple of big gills and small perch. Nothing over 11 inches on the crappies today, released all of them. Nice morning to be out.  Good Luck and Stay Safe

Looks like the Salem website is saying that Silver is open for wake again, I am assuming they just haven't taken signs down yet. Was out last night and boated 2 bass and a Walleye all on small cranks in shallows.
