Heading out to Bear Head (Contact Us Please) park this weekend and was wondering if anyone's been out there before and can offer any tips/advice for the lake?

Thanks in advance!

I was up there a couple weeks ago. There are some nice size crappies in the lake which you should be able to get a limit of. Also there is some good walleye fishing to be had. I prefer to fish near the canoe-in camp sites on the weed flat 10-18 fow. I would also try eagles nest lake 3. We caught 30 walleye in less than 2 hours one evening. The walleyes were a little on the the small side but we managed a few eaters. We fished between shore and the big rock out form the public access, around 9-11 fow(the rock is marked with a white jug). Try this spot esspecially if there is a strong west wind! Just a couple tips, hope they help.

WATCH YOUR MOTOR! Unmarked rock hazard near the group camp site. Ask the park office if they marked the thing yet! Lost a prop a couple years ago on the thing. Good thing the speed limit is only 10 MPH.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
