That lake usually puts out a few eyes this time of year in 20 or so feet off of the point strait out and to the right of the access, thinking about heading out there Sunday at some point and will post results if i go there.

Is there a way to get to the south end with-out parking at the access? No 4-wheeler or sled and it is a bit of a hike.

I've seen people come out off the south point, but it is private. The only way I've ever gotten to the south end was to drive from the access. That would be a VERY long walk through the snow!!

I drove down there but its all private, could ask someone if you could go through there yard best bet, wouldnt want your truck getting towed for trespassing.

I do believe that if you take Pleasant Road as far as it will take you, there is a small access point on the east side of the lake. There is a small point over there that I think looks like a small sand bar. I have never been on the lake but I am very familiar with the roads and layout of the shore.

There is only one place for the public to get on the lake. Anywhere else you need permission from a landowner. Someone owns that small point so you can't just go and use it, people with permission do though.

Pleasant lake is not that sweet, if you are thinking about trespassing to get out there to fish, find a new lake!!

The walk is worth it! I have been taking that hike to the southern part of the lake for several weeks now and had considerable success! Not going to divulge specific spots..but use your Marcum or Vex and the crappies will show up a foot or 2 off the bottom. GL and be sure to only take what u need smile.gif

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
