"I have only been shore fishing for bluegills on this lake. They are a decent size 6-8 inches. I catch about 3 per hour. This lake is full to the top with weeds. Never bass fished here but I think it would be good fishing soft plastics but crankbaits and such would get snagged up. Good luck."

"Fished for the 1st time today. I focus on bass only. Lake looks good. The water was fairly clear. There are a lot of weeds. I caught 3 bass, biggest measuring 18". Caught about 10 northern as well, biggest measuring 33". All fish looked to be eating well, but I did not see many baitfish. Will fish again."

"well, i live in the area and i have had quite a few good times out there, this lake is very weedy as many of you know, but it is a very good habitat for panfish and bass.. and i have also had good northern fishing through the ice, i have heard of many 35" northerns come out of there in the winter, and even a few 40's but you have to work for them... good luck to all..."
