Has anyone here been fishing this lake. I went out last sunday 12/31 and had a consistent walleye bite for about a half hour. Extremely frustrating because they were not allowing themselves to be hooked, so the would basically suck on the bait until they got to the hole and then they would wiggle themselves off the hook. Could of had about 6 nice walters if we could just of landed the damn things. I have been out the last two nights and have not caught a thing, just a nibble here and there.

Anyone having luck on this lake? Would anyone want to share any information that may help me out?

I asked about this lake earlier and no one seemed to be fishing it. It used to be a walleye rearing pond for the dnr. I was told that it is pretty shallow throughout. How deep were you fishing? The farmer up the road mentioned that the panfish that he caught in the Summer tasted muddy.

I've been interested in trying it out, since it is so close.

The areas I found are like 5 - 7 feet. Seems to be rather weedy. I have heard there are 19 - 20 inch walleyes in the lake if you can find them.

I have been out there from 6:30 - 9:30 everytime. the one night the bite was on from about 7:45 - 8:30. I have hear the the sundown bite is good as well, then they take a break for an hour or two. Proved to be true one time, but the last 2 nights this has not been the case, we have got nada. But it is worth a try.

I have not fished there this year, but have in the past. I have never seen anything bigger that a 13" eye come out of there. There is one small hole that gets about 12 feet deep but unless you keep it marked on gps its hard to find, but that is where I have seen the most fish caught.

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?

      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.

      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
