Mallard is a really good fishing lake. i think this lake is best for ice fishing. it takes some time to learn the lake but once you do, you can catch some nice fish. if you are looking to catch bass this is the place to go.

I ve been fishing this lake since we have had good ice it took me a couple times too find the good holes, since then Ive caught big bass every time Ive been there, just recently the pike and walleye have started. I go out there two or three times a week. its a great lake to fish, it just take's some serching for the right spots.
