No, not as of late.

The lake is a great kids fishing lake. A ton of small-med. sunnies and small crappies. Once and awhile a small hammer handle.

The last time I was there, the kids had a blast.

We have had luck with worms, corn and crappies minnows. The middle east side and north end by bridge rail is some of the better spots. The north end is the only area I have seen northerns caught.

Are you talking about the little Island lake off of 694? If so I believe it is a nice little lake to get out on you kayak and fish. Many panfish, bass, pike, and the occassion walleye. As stated most panfish are small but the crappie population can put out some good year classes.

Very small lake so rarely do you have to deal with boat traffic. I have not honestly spent a great deal of time on that body of water. A little in the early spring of late fall to test equipment or to get my kayak wet

If you can get out, there are some really nice bass in it and it is also stocked with muskies. The best thing for the kids though is they can run around, have lots of room and even use the playground. My grandkids love it, and if the bass hits while the small pannies are biting the kids have a blast.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
