|@ the lake|
I know there's other folks fishing out here! lol let's hear some reports! :P
One of my favorite little lakes to stop at when in the area, just don't manage to get out there often.. How's everyone doin? any changes in the usual trends or numbers?
I've been spending a lot of time in central Wisconsin lately and a coupleof the lakes i fish are doing trial runs for new regs... 25 panfish limit. but only 5 of 8" plus bluegills can be kept. It has Really helped the stunting in a short period of time... id love to see them implement a similar regulation here let folks take home whatever they're willing to clean, while maintaining a more reasonable population/ average size and keeping the best breeders safe.
Would love to hear from you all, I will be sure to post a report next time I'm in the area, hopefully within the next few weeks before deer season starts!
Good luck to All! ~Talk soon.
Anyone having any luck out here lately?
Headed out today and caught about 100 small gills. A few closer to 8 inches. The ice is mostly 8 inches but there were a couple areas where the springs were and I didn't approach them to check but there was a 2x2 foot hole of open water near the cabin.
Stay safe and carry a spud bar.
I took the Spud out to Ottawa Saturday and right off the boat launch 30 yards it only took 2 throws to go through and felt like the ice was moving under your feet. There was 2.5 inches of ice and the DNR had to cancel the kids day event that they were having.
26° - 30° F
Fished the last few days and only caught a few small pike and bass. The lake was loud making ice
If you are able to get to the pier right at sunrise and fish hard for a couple hours, you can expect to get some very good numbers of various types of panfish. Along with some okay numbers of largemouth bass on topwater. But get their before sunrise in order to get a spot on the pier.
My son left his tackle tray either at the launch or at the swim area. If anyone found it we would appreciate getting it back. It is about an 8 X 10 or 12 Cabelas Tray, gray with green trim. It has a Milwaukee Goodland decal on the lid. There was also a Gray Milwaukee Bucks soft sided cooler along with it. This was left sometime in early June.
This is a fun lake to take people who want to catch fish and not be bored. Fished for about 2 hours with my wife Sunday from a canoe. Caught a bunch of small bass and bluegill. Nothing of size but We had so much fun we lost track of the time.
I've only seen photos of one trout caught by my friends kid last summer.
It's probably more likely to catch a limit of crappie than a trout. At least i've caught a few of those there. And some over 10 inches.
