TOPO MAP FOR MEMBERS
Good walleye angling will continue at Five Island Lake, with many year classes to sustain the fishery for the next few years. Walleye anglers will continue to catch numbers of quality (15- to 19.9-inch) size fish with preferred (> 20.0 inch) size fish not uncommon in the catch. Some stock (10- to 14.9-inches) size fish from this size group will be angler acceptable and contribute to the overall catch. Anglers will note the numbers of quality (8- to 9.9-inch) size crappie, mostly black crappie in the catch; persistence and patience will be rewarded with larger angler acceptable size fish in the creel. Continued good black crappie growth will provide an upswing to the fishery for the next few years. Anglers will continue to catch high numbers of yellow bass from Five Island Lake with anglers noting the increase in the size of fish harvested. Opportunities to harvest numbers of good sized channel catfish from Five Island Lake for the upcoming 2018 season. Abundant areas on the lake for shore anglers to explore and find those secret hot spots. Use traditional baits for “cats” but, don’t overlook live bait such as nightcrawlers. With this versatile bait you may end the day with a multi species catch. (2018)
