I was wondering the same thing as I was going to head there Saturday evening with a little kid I am a mentor to and has never been ice fishing before and hope to ge thim on some fish. I have never fished there, so where does everyone go? I see there is a county park on the east side so is there an acess there. Is there a tent city like most lakes and go fish by them? Any info would be great, don't need to hotspot hoenyhole, just get aimed in the right direction. Thanks

I drove out there to the park on Saturday around 4pm but didn't go out on the lake as the landing looked real rough and deep with snow. I looked through the binocs and it looked like 1 perm shack across the lake to the WNW and about 5 the the SW near that long point or narrows, but no trucks were out there. Decided not to chance it and worry about getting stuck with no help out there and not knowing where to go on the lake. No sense on risking it.

A person always needs to assess the risk/effort being worth the "prize" & you're gut feeling is usually right. Sounds like you made the right choice, fishing is fun & perch are tasty, but....

      I'm wondering the same thing!  Low temps have been dropping below freezing and in shallow water that temp has to drop multiple degrees in a night.  I'm wondering if they went back to the breaks and are waiting again?
