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

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
