dwitk: you can launch atvs from goodland, lake farm and mcdaniel park next to green lantern.  Everyone is different i like to use spoons and joggin raps from crappie and walleyes possibly even a dead stick with minnow and #6/8 hook.

Use what you are comfortable with and im sure youll catch fish!

Going to be heading out this weekend. Never fished here before. Where would be the best place to launch? I’ve seen people talk about goodland park. Also any tips for bait or jigs to use? I primarily have used tip ups, but would like to try some jigging.

Max, you’ll be fine. Thats where a lot of the atv traffic comes on to the lake.

Not a report, just a safety question. Are there any cracks, or sketchy spots I shoul be aware of if I intend to walk out from Goodland Park? I am new to this lake so any safety info is appreciated. I am capable of finding the fish :-)

Wasnt a water rescue, person had a seizure while fishing, they used normal ice rescue vehicles anytime they go on the ice.

Only been fishing this lake 5 years but every year that area twinkletoes marked gets sketchy no matter how thick the ice is... had to help pull an atv out that broke through the top layer there last year but luckily there was ice underneath the sheet he broke through.
