I was out there on Saturday. About 30 to 40 houses for a small lake. Its seemed way over pressured, and the fishing showed. The bite was extremely slow, and the few crappies we caught were not that impressive (9").

Good luck if you go though. Me, I won't make the drive for that lake again. I have friends in the area and hopefully they will want to try a different lake next time.

The bad thing is, word gets about about a small lake like that producing a few nice fish. And they get cleaned out in no time.

Didn't this lake freeze out a few years ago? If I were catching 10" bluegills I certainly wouldn't be talking about it on a fishing forum.

just my two cents worth

It must have frozen out. It sure hasn't produced much this year. It is a shallow lake with a max of 11' but with the low water levels its more like 9' now.

For the size of this lake it gets WAY TOO MUCH pressure to sustain it for a long term. I agree it shouldn't be discussed in detail on an open forum.

I have ice fished this lake the last 4 years and never had great success......a few nice sunnies and very few nice crappies....put in time on this body of water and I won't go back anytime soon.....stay on that lake and join the masses as I will go elsewhere! Good Luck

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
