According to the map, this board is for the Thunder Lake near Rhinelander. Perhaps there needs to be a thread for the other Thunder Lake.

Since this lake is prone to winterkills due to being basically a large marsh, the DNR needs to solve this by doing the same thing as Big Muskego in Waukesha County: Make a minimum size limit of 40" on pike.

That way, the pike can grow into the low 30's just in time to be wiped out in a winterkill. Muskego has one quite regularly, including 5 of the last 8 years if memory serves although the DNR biologist refuses to believe that.

This is true and EXACTLY what has transpired. The 40" came in after the winter of '10-'11. HUGE die off summer of '12 and then the winter of '13-'14.

Hey, at least Thunder has aerators.

The Thunder Lake that had the enormous fish kill last year is the Thunder Lake by Three Lakes, not the Thunder Lake near Rhinelander. I think we have our paths crossed on this one.. Big Smile

Did this happen recently, because I saw guys catching fish out there with my own eyes as I sat in the warmth of the Jailhouse Saloon about a week ago. They were fishing the narrows right there and catching gills and crappie.

DuckSlayin88, Thunder had an enormous winter kill last year. Fishing is near extinct out there currently. The freeze is real

Went out to Thunder Lake on Saturday to find out it was an absolute ghost town. Had people tell us that this lake froze out again. Can anyone confirm this?

How are the ice conditions currently? We have a cabin on Thunder and are coming up this weekend. Curious if I should bring the wheeler and sled or if the ice is good enough for the truck. I havent had much success ice fishing Thunder in the past but have hooked up with many nice bass and northerns from the boat. We're looking to bounce around between Thunder, Boom, and Creek. Do many people fish Lake Creek through the ice? I know its not all that deep off the channel but I have pulled many nice gills/crappies/northerns out of here from the boat as well.

By no means am I a marine biologist, just someone who fishes Thunder. I'd say, though, that the best thing we can do as stewards and sportsman is to at the least practice catch and release and at the most just try a different lake. Let ma nature bring this lake to rebound.

If people are catching 9 inch gills, and I assume keeping them, I don't see that as part of a solution.
