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.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?
