Hey guys,

I'm hitting this lake for the first time this afternoon and boy does it look interesting. I took a look at the maps and just the fact that such a small lake (~110 acres) can get to 60' deep is gonna throw me for a loop. So I'm looking for anyone that has fished it before, and might have a heads up what works well with that type of environment (not to mention our recent weather change).

I'm not real great with figuring out how to fish deep if thats what its gonna require, but I do what I need to catch some fish. The whole lake IS surrounded by lily pads though by the looks of things, so that should make for an easy starting point for something to try. I dunno, any heads up would be great. Thanks!

P.S. I want primarily bass, but some nice sized northern would be great as well (and I hear this lake has em).

I live closer to that area, although I've never fished these particular waters. Check out the Faribault area forum and post your request there, I'm sure you'll get some great basic advice from the locals.

I live on the lake. Check out the south central forum, I have made posts on it. What time are you going to be out there?

Oh, well, I hadn't found a forum for that area by quickly browsing through, so I'll try there. I'll be on the lake roughly around 5pm till dusk tonight.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
