You should be able to launch there but getting to the main lake may be a little tough with all the weeds.

Maple does have some nice pike in it as does Bass lake or even Clearwater. One method I've found to work well, this time of the year, in Bass and Maple lakes is to troll the 20 to 25 foot depths with deep diving crankbaits (Risto Raps, Lightning Shads, etc.) Good Luck

Lake Charlotte is full of them! Some decent ones, which need to be let go, but TONS of small ones (under 20"). Wife's family lives on the lake and I keep all of the pike I catch when I get there to fish (~4 times a year).

Great lake to get some flags ice fishing, that is for sure!

      Great stuff guys

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
