Any of the lakes in the flowage connecting Round and Bowstring. This year they set a 9 fish limit for slimers. There is no shortage of them in any of those lakes.

Well stated Jason. All the lakes connected by the river systems between Round and Bowstring have the experimental limit. If you have fished any of these lakes with minnows, you would understand. The is an over-abundance of eater sized jack-fish in all these lakes.

As for where on the lake to fish, I don't think it matters. Look at a map for typical pike structure and start drilling holes. Good luck and bring plenty of minnows.

Forest Lake in town is pretty good. If you are having trouble on where to start, I know someone who can show you the ropes. His name is woody jackson. He offers on shore fishing trips (in city limits) mostly in the spring and summer but I'm sure he will take you out to his favorite hunny hole in the winter.

Good luck King!!!

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
