It was good while she lasted....until next year
I think that's all she wrote guys, ice was still around 8 inches but shore ice is going fast, I went out thru cook park safely but by time I went off the lake ice was not safe as I went thru in about 3 feet of water. Decent day with a lot of gills in shallow water and a 32 and 38 inch pike, every thing released.
JBeeh34, park across the street from highschool where the skate park use to be, or behind docks bar down the hill, easy access there.
Went back to my gill hole tonight that I found. Buddy got one gill and nothing else. Was marking a nice fish all night but wouldn't bite,buddy dropped camera down and think we saw a decent walleye. 2 flags set....nothing
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
