Replying to Packtofishin1  

The lake was again treated with herbicide this year. Treatment was limited to the SW Bay to specifically target curly leaf pondweed (invasive). This is a multi-year program. I’m not sure if this is the last year in the sequence. Weeds are up on other areas of the lake. 

The herbicide is administered early in the season as the curly leaf starts rising ahead of the native plants.  The intent is to kill off the invasive and allow the native vegetation to then fill in.  I didn’t go to the most recent presentation of the results, so I don’t have information on the progress

So I'm heading back up after a few years away. Can anyone tell me if the lake has bounced back after the big weed kill of a few years ago. Heading up July 10th for a week. PM me if you have info or if you want to hop in the boat up there.

The lake owners are the most to blame .I fished here once the water was green algee bloom. Over developed shorelines are the problem on many lakes. Along with the cellphone.Catch afish call everybody you know, see it all the time.   Along with all the other electronics the fish dont stand a chance on a little lake. More people fish in the winter now 20 years ago we had very few now we all have heaters and shacks. Its not just 1 problem. Our dnr is useless in this state.

I completely agree.  15- 20 years ago when we first started going up there for our family trip we would be able to go out and limit out on panfish and walleye daily. Never actually kept anything other than enough for a single fish fry the night before we would leave ( about 15 panfish). But steadily saw a decline in both size and numbers so about 5 years ago we just headed over to fibbers for our annual dinner. Now we are not even going to stay on this lake. Sad watching my kids grow up on the lake, my son even took his first steps on the shores of the lake, to not staying there anymore.  I fear this will happen to more lakes if something doesn't change.

Been out twice this winter...to a pretty reliable spot and nothing going on. Doesn't seem like others are doing too well either.

Thinking of heading back for our annual family vacation again. Haven't been up there since they did the big weed kill off a few years ago and the fishing was terrible. Just wondering if the fishing has picked up again or if it's still pretty dead. Feel free to PM me. Thanks

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.
