I grew up camping on this lake a lot.  Always fished it mostly from shore but sometimes from a canoe.  Could always count on catching bluegill consistently with some decent eater sizes.  There also used to be a lot of big perch.  Largemouth bass are also plentiful.  There is just about everything in this lake largely due to fish moving in from Sweeny lake in the spring up the creek.  I heard of a 47" Muskie caught out of here (Sweeny is stocked heavily and managed for Muskie and walleye, but it also has oxygen problems).  I usually found Cunard somewhat tough to fish due to most of it being quite deep; the shoreline weeds are your best bet for action, again, from mostly bluegills.  I have also ice fished this lake and had good action from bluegills and some bass, but I was only jigging with waxies late ice.  I still plan to try it again with tip-ups/minnows and see what happens.  I also want to spend more time in a boat (yes it's a no gas motors lake but it's small enough) and really work it over, there's supposed to be a good secondary drop into the deepest water (23').  There are supposed to be walleye, and I believe they would be in there, again from Sweeny, but finding them I'm sure would be a real challenge; I would look for harder bottom and drop-offs, possibly between the boat landing and beach.  There are no bars and lots of deep water, so this lake is tough, but I think if someone really works it and learns it the rewards could be well worth it.  I plan to keep trying it!  It's a beautiful state-owned lake and a nice diversion from the cottage-lined busy lakes.

I think if im right this lake is connected to sweeny lake by a small creek or inlet or floods when ice out, thats how I think they walleyes get in there, Fished it a few times, kept some nice bluegills but nothing really big, Im not sure if you can use a gas motor on this lake or not, I know shureshot lake down the road is no gas motors, only trolling motors.

I fish this lake every year on our family camping trip. Small northerns and pan fish, never caught a walleye but haven't really fished for them. there are better lakes in the area for eyes. In july everything is deep or suspended so it's not much fun for the kids. good luck will be up there on Friday.

Hello gentlemen,

My wife and I camp quite a bit on Cunard Lake Believe it or not we have never fished it but have fished several others in the vacinity. Do you know if this lake is worth fishing. I did check the DNR info and it says there a quite a few nice species in it.

We always practice C&R and 99% of our fishing is canoe fishing to try to minimize our impact on the wilderness.

Thank you in advance.

Tom

My family and I have fished this lake a couple of times on camping trips. We caught a bunch of perch, rock bass and some little largemouth bass. I also hear there are lots of walleye in this lake.

Tried this lake for the first time today. Looks really good, but did not produce much. I think the high skys and the wind did not help. The lake looks like we shuold have cauhgt a fish on every cast! Will come back to this little honey hole again.
