Anyone have recent ice conditions for this lake? Looking to take my son on this little adventure. PM if you'd like.
Fished yesterday with my son most of the day. Went 4 for 7 on tipups. Mostly snake northerns. Did ok on panfish, but I am starting to think this lake can and is being fished out. I hope I'm wrong.
On a side note, does anyone actually know every species of fish in this lake? I have caught perch, bluegill, sunfish, crappie, golden shiner, pike, and bass. We had a fish swim up the hole in 20', take a big gulp of air, and swam back down. Quite startling, as I have had a few muskrats actually come out of the hole while in a shack. First thought, bowfin (aka dogfish). It looked more like a burbot to me. Possibly a bullhead but the size leads me to think otherwise. It was pushing 2' long. Any thoughts?
Below 0° F
Slow day, 3 northerns in the 20 inch range. No gills to be found. Very cold and windy ice was cracking all day.
Appreciate the replies. Thanks. I kind of figured it would not be accessible but not certain. I think I'll try somewhere up north. Or, maybe I'll put the boat in by DePere or the Wolf and just accept that my ice fishing season has come to an end.
I am going to agree with Deerlake. Lots of wind and sun the past two days. If there is ice, it will not be safe for travel.
Ice fishing in Waushara County is over till December.
Anyone have a recent ice report for this lake? About a two hour drive for me and a bit of a hike to find out it's not accessible. Catch and release for me. PM me please.
Anyone have an ice report on this backwoods gem?
