Road construction is done by Parker. Road closed by cty. B, 3 miles west of Parker. Gills have improved on Crooked and Parker last few years. Landing at Parker is very shallow.

There isn't much new info on the threads for these lakes, but I'll try to tell you what I remember from my past experience!  HWY G should get you in the neighborhood, you may have to travel a short distance on gravel depending on the lake.  I haven't visited them in years, but all have panfish and all have good and bad days.  Most of them have a fee to park from either the county or the local lake association.  Deep is walk in only and gin clear.  Wolf and McGinnis are hand (or foot)-powered watercraft only, fairly clear with a big deep hole and shallow weeds.  Jordan is like a mini Castle Rock with the partiers but has quite a bit of shallow and very deep structure to offer.  Crooked has a couple 20-50+ ft. deep holes and shallow weeds, maybe a pontoon or two but no room to ski, Peppermill is mostly shallow weeds with a couple aerators, no room for skiers.  Goose is another shallow weedy bowl with not a lot of room to ski. Peppermill froze or was drained around a decade ago but should have panfish again.  Parker (and Jordan) used to get the most fishing attention when I was younger but it's fairly clear with lots of depth so the fish can be hard to find.  Hope this helps, I've been itching to head back to that neighborhood myself!  All have landings deep enough for my 17ft deep "V" bunk trailer unless otherwise noted.

Just 2 more questions. Can I access parker lake landing by using highway G from the north, and wich lake is best for a few gills, deep lake, Jordan lake, wolf lake, goose lake, Peppermill lake, or crooked lake? I'm just interested in enough for a meal for 2.

Jackwagon, do you know if they're finally done with HWY 82 from Mauston to Oxford?  It was a washboarded gravel mess East of HWY 13 for quite awhile and was still torn up when I went through there in May '21 (it was terrible when I was a kid in the 80's, but at least it was paved-ish).  I didn't fish Parker much growing up, but always enjoyed Crooked, Peppermill, Jordan and others in that area.

I'm interested in fishing this lake for anything. Is it worth driving 40 miles to give it a try?

Fished on Saturday from 10-4 with my two boys and two of there friends that never ice fished before. We had tip ups set chased about 8 flags managed to catch 2 bass. 2 boys age 8 and 9 that never caught a fish ice fishing caught their first. Fun to watch the excitement they had. The weather was also perfect. Thanks for info on lake guys!

Jingles,

If you noticed where I was fishing I would target that area, I was in 14 fow. Over a nice weed bed. Bite was a little slow that day but I managed a crappie on one of my homemade deals inside the shack, a large mouth that snapped the line at the hole, the pike you seen and a couple nice gills. 

None of my gear broke but when it happened I immediately entered the 7 stages of grief lol. 

If you're interested in how I made the hook setter, here is a link to the video that I learned it from they are pretty awesome.

Shouldbfishin' - Thanks for the info on the DNR study. When I go to a new lake I usually look up the lake-specific regs on the DNR website. This is the first one I can remember fishing with special panfish regs.  I vaguely remember reading about the DNR study of lower limits but not the particulars, so thanks again.

Catcher of Trout - yeah, that must have been you. I was fishing 50 yards or so away for awhile before moving a little closer to shore. Does your homemade contraption work decently? I did hear your stuff fall out on the road; it was actually quite loud to me out on the lake when it happened. Hope nothing got damaged!
