Has anyone ever had any luck icefishing for sunnies or crappies on this lake? I know where to find them in the summer but has anyone ever found them in the winter? I'm not looking for specifics but just want to know if it is worth my time to try this lake again in the wintertime. It's a lot of work since you have to walk out, drill your holes by hand and you can't use any electronics.

don't tell me you can't use electronics on this lake. Is it a law or something. Hmm I just don't get it. Could You please elaborate.

I fished that lake last fall, rented a couple of the 14' boats caught a few sunnies and a bunch of bass, it was really to windy to go to the other side of the lake where it appeared there was a little structure, but I have heard you can catch some nice ones if you want to row alot

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Briggs is open as far as I could see.I will be out that way again tomorrow I'll get another glance and see if I spot some on a different side of the lake

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
