Looking to take my son out this weekend. Never fished this lake before. Any info on good locations to walk out would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
Derby was a good turn out. We held 1st place for gill and 2nd for pike pretty much all day until the end. Fished in 13 feet of water. We honestly caught 60 to 70 gills, all within 8 to 9 inches. I know it's just gills but that's the most fish I have caught on Bangs ever. Been fishing here for 12+ years. Hoping to get out this weekend
Any of you guys going to the derby tomorrow. Ill be out anybody want ti hook up let me know .and is it true the wave the shanty fee on derby day
Fished from 7 to 11. Kept 6 gills 8+. Threw back a couple smaller ones and 2 perch. Put out 8 flags and not a single one again. About 9 inches of ice but be careful for the crack by the pier at cooks.
Got out this morning again, got deeper at 16ft. 2 crappie at 10in and one small largemouth. 3 flags set, nothing again... Marked fish for 4 hours straight but only got 3, all caught on minnows. They were picky.
Lundman, I was thinking the same thing. Would like to know what if any fish have been stocked. I have paid the fee with no gripes. The lake is an easy on and off for me and my old back. Love it at night. Some days the fishing is good and others not so much but that's the sport of it. Jim
Bobojoe what makes people scumbaggs just cause they have shanties sounds like someone is jealous they don’t have one and yes it’s crazy to charge someone 25$ to use a shanty
Does anyone know how much money has been collected from the shanty fees over the last 3 years and how much of that money was actually used for incremental funding for stocking fish? When I asked the marine police last year they didn't have a clue. I was told the shanty fee money was added to some sort of "general fund" for the marine unit. This fund covers expenses like vehicle maintenance (summer and winter), officer overtime etc. I would really be interested in knowing how many of what kind of fish have been stocked.
Yep, $25 for portable popups and $50 for shacks your leaving on the ice. Only lasts for the season
Big cat 187 are you talking about permanent shacks or flip over types? If it’s hubs or flip overs I’m not paying anyone 25$ so I can use it on that lake that’s just plain stupid
