First off, the lake weed treatments did hurt the fishing and made the North End a complete dead sea. Actually it affected all the weeds, way down to what folks call the narrows and around into Squaw Creek. Did nothing for the water quality in my opinion. I've been fishing the lake for 45 years and my family for 85 years. Owners of lakefront property for the same amount of time, so we have some history and fish daily when present.
I feel that the Bass population has taken a big hit in the last 3 years and small pike are definitely down as well. That being said, I just returned from two weeks on the lake and caught some nice pike. Two @ 11Lbs and several others in the 5 to 9lb range. Yes, I returned them to the water, but I do keep the 4 lb'ers, as I like to eat them. Had one 20" walleye and several smaller ones. Largest bass was 3.5lbs and I didn't find them to be abundant this year, but with the late spawn, they could be just starting to get real active. Bluegill fishing was great, crappie ok and perch few and far between.
According to the DNR, the walleye ARE NOT reproducing in the lake. They go through the motions and unfortunately the fry are dying within days. Hence the Perch are in the same family.
Anyway, it's still a FISH FACTORY compared to other lakes in the area and we fisherman wish to keep it that way. Plenty of other lakes for water sports.
