Got on about 9-2. Caught just about everything. Northern, few bass, some bigger bluegill and couple sunfish. Everything still swimming. Most pan fish caucht strait across from dock at other shoreline. Didnt go into main lake. Nice day on the water.
Pretty sure there is an ordinance about no ATVs on the lake and there are exemptions for lakefront property owners in certain cases. I would look into it first. If you are wrong don't worry, the people who live on the lake will let you know. Most are still bitter that the public launch opened up a decade ago.

ATV's are allowed on the lake so long as you don't use the public launch. I've seen homeowners with their ATV's on the lake several times.
Why they don't let you drive on the lake with an ATV from the launch is beyond me. Maybe because there is very limited parking and trailers would take up too much room?
I've ice fished silver lake probably 20 times in the last 7 or 8 years and unless you like 15" northern, the lake is a dud. I've occasionally caught a few gills and crappie but I don't waste my time there anymore.
