Was out on Stewart last Sunday. We had 6 tip ups in the water for 3 hours and drilled over 25 holes around the lake looking for some panfish. Only had a couple lookers on the Vexilar and no flags. Talked to a couple others who where seeing the same thing. One guy did say a 30 something inch northern was caught the week before. I have fished this lake a few times and usually you get a few flags with some northern and last year every time I dropped a jig down a small panfish would take it. Hoping it was just a fluke last Sunday and next time we will get some action.

SO never fished here before- thinking of giving it a whirl. Saw some posts of small gills, possibly pike (Big one spotted last year!) Anyone out there? Any info or tips or anything is appreciated. Will post if I make it out there- just looking for somewhere new to fish around Middleton area- Without a 4 wheeler Mendota is too much like work!! Smile Thanks and good luck all!

Madgill, I fish Stewart and the rock quarry in Verona very heavily and I have seen that same large fish at the quarry I believe it is a HUGE pike. Also just a tip for Stewart lake fisherman, go there early ice and set tip ups with shiners. You have a very good chance to catch 3-4 pike in a day. Good Luck! Big Smile

I fished Stewart Lake Sat morning (7/4). Now I'm not much of a summer fisherman (usually only ice fish), but that lake is always great to check out. Nothing but very small gills for us, no skeeters, a great morning to get out. Then hit the rock quarry in Verona (ha, the old snake pit)have not been there in years but it was fun, usual little gills, you never know what is in there! We saw something big cruising the shallows as we left, a big fish with a long snout, kinda freaky!

I can never find any panfish of size in the summer or winter. I know they have to be there somewhere but always catch fish the size of large shiners. Like was said before though I have caught several smaller pike through the ice. If anyone has any secrets for some bigger panfish and would like to share that would be great.

There are lots of pike in this lake but not many big ones I caught a 30'' through the ice last year in the early spring you can catch trout but once early summer hits the pike eat all of them crappies bass and bluegills bite year round my best success fishing this lake is ice fishing for pike bass and crappies but summer is good too good luck! This is a pic of that 30'' pike

Anyone fish here (Mount Horeb) or have any info? I had a painting/powerwashing job and got there early so I stopped by... saw a bunch of gills- couple decent ones in beds and a small pike cruising the edge of the weed bed- I was only there for a few minutes... Looked like a nice body of water but no one was fishing... Any info please message me - everything on here is pretty old... Thanks and good luck!

Spent a couple hours in the late afternoon Sunday (8/31) fishing from several spots along the road-side and dam shore. Took home 3 very nice gills and caught this little snake by accident while retrieving a crawler.
