It's low. As I mentioned in an earlier post, 1 week ago I had 9 1/2 inches of water at the end of my 100 ft dock. My neighbor said his son took off the lower unit near the island about 3 weeks ago. I think the access is all right just be careful.

Was out there last night. I took the yard stick down to the dock and had 7 1/2" of water at the end. Seems to have gone down 2" in the last 10 days. What Deitz said is right. When the water was really low the island was a penninsula extending from the east side. I would also be careful around the west end of the island as there are rocks there. There is a shallow flat extending from the east side just as you enter the main lake coming from the north access. I would stay to west side of center. It deepens as soon as you get past that.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
