Making our 2nd trip with my family in 2 weeks after spending several summers as a youngin' coming up here with my parents and sister. 

My dad will still go out with me for a couple trips though he is slowing down, and I can certainly put my wife and 3 yr old on the panfish pretty easily. 

But I am a pretty hardcore fisherman and a have a very busy lifestyle right now with kids, my business, and volunteering so this is my 'big' fishing week of the year. Last year did decent on the northwest corner of the lake in the bay on bass and small northerns. (Green Mepp's was the ticket). Got one nice northern on the rock islands but suprisingly didnt do well there compared to 20 years ago catching 'eyes and bass. Didn't get to main basin much as I have never done well. Got a handful of surprisingly nice perch and just one crappie.

I will throw for muskies when I get out solo in the early am or evening, but if I get one great if not no biggy. 

More interested in some spots for me and the ol man or the oldest to find some bigger pannies or be entertained casting. We won't keep much casting (legal walleyes we enjoy though) but are looking more for keeper pannies.

Any ideas that you can help me out with would be great. As a trade, I would be happy to buy you a beer or two at Vinchi's in Sayner or negotiate a good deal on a charter trip on lake Michigan as my brother-in-law runs a business and things are hot now. If not, totally understood and hope everyone has a great summer on the lake!

Fished the past two afternoons now until dark with limited success. Fished in 10 to 15 FOW. Lots of dink perch with a few small crappie & bluegils mixed in.

No flags on walleye suckers with over (8) tip-ups out at various depths...WTH!!! Ice thickness has consistently been over 8" inches plus.

Set up in 12' FOW and caught tons of dink perch on small jigs tipped with wax worms. Nothing on crappie minnows. No flags either with walleye suckers. Gonna try deeper water near the islands and see how that goes. Ice was a solid 8 to 10" thick everywhere we drilled on east side of lake. Happy New Year and tight lines everyone.

I have not been on Lost lake but the lakes I have been on had between 8-12” of ice.  Most have trails marked for snowmobiles.  I wouldn’t drive a truc out but walking should be ok.

Hello Lake-Linkers,

I'm heading up to our cabin for some ice fishing this weekend with my kids. I was wondering about the overall ice thickness or if there any danger areas on the lake that should be avoided other than where Stella Creek feeds in on the East side or the outlet by the dam on the West side?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hey all,

Water temp around 70 and weeds starting to fill in. Got out yesterday and boated 7 snakes 2 big largemouth, 1 keeper gill and 10 nice perch.

First time up here with family since we went for years as kids. We are staying in the northeast corner of the lake. Can anyone post or pm any tips as we get some limited fishing time in this week? Ideally fishing for eyes and pike but anything is fine. Willing to trade tips for fishing in Milwaukee or take anyone out for free ice fishing in the harbor for browns. Thanks in advance!

Coming up for the weekend. Didn’t get up here at all last summer due to work and a crazy now-ex girlfriend who made it hard to get away on weekends.  I’m very excited to fish my favorite childhood lake for the first time in over a year. Does anyone have a report for panfish and bass?

Wow. 

while patterns changed, I thought 2017 was some of the best fishing on this lake in years. I live nearby and fish several lakes. Many local  lakes had less vegetation last year

I was up there in July for a week and I can say first hand they killed off most of the weeds in the lake. I had a hard time finding anything green. Every time I brought up the anchor tins of brown dead weeds. Worst week of fishing I've had in the 15 years of going up to that week.
