"Spent a couple days on this lake and didn't exactly slay them like I hoped-thats fishing. I have a camera and was impressed with the weed growth wherever I went. with that said a lot of lookers showed up but very few takers. I did get a couple nice gills on a very small chartreuse jig but that was the day we had to leave early for home. Had a few flags pop but the pike were on the small side. As per another post it was pretty bumpy travel out there but just had to take your time. I hope the ice sticks around till the middle of march to try it one more time."

"This is one of my favorite lakes to fish. You can find different spots all over the lake to catch fish. You can catch a variety of fish in this lake including bluegill, perch, crappie, bass, northern, and bullhead."

"Great lake for big Bluegill if you know where to find them. Largemouth are making a come back and can be found in good numbers, large fish are there but they didn't get big by being dmb. Perch are above average in size and good numbers but again the go in streaks. Crappies are prolific in the spring."

"Great Lake tons of big gills, perch, and decent crappie. Above average largemouth. The pike however are puny and skinny and there are lots of them. Very easy to limit out on 8-11" bluegils."

"Fished Pickeral Lake several times during late July and early August. Caught limits of small to medium sized Northern every time out. Also had 1 night where we limited out on jumbo sized perch. Bluegill action was spotty and we caught no crappie. My son did catch 1 nice sized largemouth bass. The fish we have eaten were delicious. All in all, a nice lake."
