What kind of fish does that lake produce? I heard it was decent for northerns, but are there any pannies or walleyes worth going after?

I fished the lake a few times this summer and I mostly caught sunnies and bass. The sunnies are mostly smaller but I have gotten some real nice ones out of there. The bass is what I mainly go there for. I have also been wondering how the ice is because I am hoping on heading out there soon.

Not much of a walleye lake. Decent panfish with lots of sorting. On tip ups you'll catch a mixed bag of bass and pike with both running pretty decent. When I first fished this lake I'd take my kids there and we set up on the the break fishing panfish with tip ups up shallow. Lots of action!

Still a good action lake.

I checked Beaver today, about 3 inches of clear ice and 3-4 inches of bad ice(slush frozen). There was somebody with a 4 wheeler out there. Crazy if you ask me.

There is slush on almost all of the lakes in various spots. You just cant get away from that when the snow to ice ratio is what it is. might be froze up this weekend though. The temps sure dropped last night.

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
