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

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
