Hey crappies i fished fountain for the first time a week ago and noticed all the houses seemed too be lined up right on the east shoreline? We went to the outside of them and got in 10' and got a few crappies. What is the rest of the lake like for depth? You got any idea? I might take my boat out there this summer and cruise around with the depthfinder and try to find some midlake humps or something that a guy can ice fish away from the crowds.

the whole lake is basically 8 foot deep there are very few humps in the lake. the deep hole is 14 foot and is near the public access right about where the "no wake zone" ends in the summer.

things change in the winter, you dont catch many crappies in that area in the summer.

go to http://www.dnr.state.mn.us and go to lake finder and type in freeborn county you will see what i mean, the lake is basically the same depth

You would think pulling a shad rap around a guy could find a few walleyes. I would think finding any hump and marking it in my GPS and going back and ice fishing it away from the crowds might be interesting.

the problem is the lack of humps. i believe there are litterally less than 4 on the whole lake. i fish edgewater and along hwy 13 in the summer, but no one is ever out that way in the winter.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
