Two questions: we have a place nearby on windfall and I’ve fished Lucerne once from a friends dock, but do they have whitefish in the lake and are there still a lot of smelt? I mean when was the last time someone caught a whitefish in it. I hear lots of rumors fly in that area hahah
Will be up this weekend and looking to head out Saturday on the south end of the lake. Any reports on ice or a bite? I saw people out a couple weeks ago by the islands.
My father used to catch 3-5# whitefish on Swedish pimples during the day and walleyes while wading at night on a plain crawler. CARPIO
Spent several weekends on Lake Lucerne this summer. We really struggled to get consistent days of fish in the boat. Lot's of Smallies and Large Mouth caught with a few Pike here and there. Does anyone have any confirmation of any Lake Trout or Browns actually being caught? How about Walley? Any guidance would be very appreciated.

Well let’s just say 7 in . ——3 in clear ice the rest is crap. Slush everywhere do not advise snowmobile far from shore . Been on here for 35 years this lake is unpredictable. Fishing was great in the 90’s . All the way to 2010. Walleyes numbers now, I catch one now and then,not like it used to be. No matter what they decide to do to this lake , bass population need to be reduced. No matter what they dump on the lake they get eaten up. Perch would be nice to see in this lake . But there stunted. Fishing report well 8 hours last nite 8 hours tonite not a flag . Be careful on this lake it does not freeze up like normal lakes do.
Hey guys my family just purchased a cabin on the south end of the lake and just looking for any advice on ice fishing this lake. Never fished this lake in summer or winter and have heard mixed reviews on the fishing. Thank you!
