Good thing their is a restrictive 40 size limit on northerns in this lake so the fish can die of summer kill. Just like Big Muskego. Time for 40in to go on this lake. Hasnt done anything to improve Eagle just like it has done nothing to improve Big Muskego. A failed multi year experiment that only prevented fishermen from harvesting any northerns. Maybe the only thing DNR used the 40 in limit on Eagle was to use the lake as a fish rearing facility so they could take some northerns to stock in other lakes that don't have a 40in limit. Makes real good sense. Not.
Die of almost every suummer. It is what it is
Yep. Those 40”rs and walleyes are going to boil, bloat and float. Lots of turtle food.
Anyone else concerned about a massive die off occurring this summer? Water temp is already 78 degrees at the surface, and no end to the heat in sight. Weeds got an early start this year so I'm not even sure if the cutter is going to be able to keep up. Water clarity is up too, which encourages more weed growth.

That’s funny about the pike fishing... I fished there this past Saturday and caught 31 pike ranging from 25-33” in a matter of 4 hours. Yes it’s weedy, but the pike are still there.

Fished this lake today,all i can say is it has really gone to hell if your a bass or pike fisherman. The weeds and SLIME have put a serious damper on these species, however if you are a pan fisherman perch are very prevalent. Not sure what DNR fisheries have done to this lake but dont bother to be honest

Out from 8am-2pm today.
THE FISH ARE SHALLOW.
Saw hundreds of bluegills on beds, also seen schools of 50+ Perch cruising the shallow weeds.
Only seen a few smaller pike in the shallows. Big ones probably on that deeper thicker weededge by now.
Lots of bass cruising the shallows even seen a few that seemed like they were on beds but most of the bass sized beds looked abandoned. Bass spawn coming to a close just a few stragglers.
THE LAKE IS SLIMEEEEEEEY RIGHT NOW. Hard to cast in the shallows without the lure coming back all full of slime right now. But if you work through it you will catch fish.
Weeds really coming up strong, a lot of areas already are matted and choked out. I hope they don't cut all the weed mats on the main lake this year. Would like to be able to fish some mats through out the summer on the main lake.
Caught about 15 bass today biggest was 3lb 8oz. Had a few break offs as well.
The bass were very skiddish had to be quite and keep distance to get anything happening.
