Found a fishing item at the waubeesee boat launch yesterday (5.9.) relating to your boat or kayaker would use. PM me if it's yours.
I'll take a ride out there & check it out.
Putter1, people are parking in the penny bar. But I'd warn you that where they are accessing down the trail is private land, maybe they are getting permission from the landowners?
Do you park in the bar parking lot when you go out from there or is there a different safe place to park?
I have only fished here open water since I never totally trusted that channel to walk out from public launch in winter.
Thanks guys, be safe

Had no problem getting on the ice from the bar. Walked out 100 yards or so. Couldn't poke my Spud bar through.
If you find a black Cabela's bag with four poles and reels and two old poles can you please get ahold of me. Went off of the trail by Penny's Bar. Thanks.

I fished waubeesee 3 times in the past week with 3 of my fishing friends, the most pike we landed was last Saturday, 4 pike (22', 23',24.5, 25") all caught on lively shinners. My friends tried jigging, they landed a few small gills/perch and a bonus shinner. We stayed out late in 2 of our trips till 8-9pm and we had a few flags, we landed a few mudpuppies, 3 rockbass and a 23.5" pike at night using shinners. Good luck all.
I would be careful about trespassing. We were out last weekend (private access) and the bite was very slow. A lot of lookers, not too many takers. Two small hammer handles for a days work. This is a very clear lake so the fish are very spooky. Ice was 5" over shallow water but went to 2" over deeper water. (15' ) Be Careful! Good luck everyone.
