I would start by checking out the local bait stores they might be able to give you water quality and stuff like that I am sure that they will not tell you where they are spearing at but they should give you a awesome start on where to begin looking for pike and clear water!!!

Get on the DNR's website and look at the lake surveys for lakes in that area. You can find the types of fish, average sizes caught, water clarity, etc. very easily. When I went to school there, people speared on One Pine, though it's not very clear water. I think Birch has some nice pike in it too.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
