Alot of recreation on this lake. I was there last sat as my wifes aunt has a cabin on the south shore. If you want Bass action or anyaction You'll have to get up real early and beat all the wave runners, skiers, tubers, pontooners,and speed boaters... Trust me, you'll be amazed. But yeah there are some nice bass in there. I snagged a few over the 18 inch mark last summer on the north docks. Good luck. oh, go to google and enter senko. All it is is a stick bait that has an enticing slow level sink to it when hooked properly. They have been the big craz now for the last few years. One more thing to spend your money on and get you in trouble with the wife... Good luck. smirk.gif

It is a pretty dirty lake, so I wouldn't feel too good about eating any fish that came out of hot shallow water there. But yes, the North docks are pretty good for bass, on both sides of the large point. I've also caught a few large bass on the milfoil or pondweed (can't remeber) edges around the landing.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
