I have never seen or heard of an aererator out there, or seen the signs that usually accompany them. Should be able to find some bullheads though. The DNR report looks like there should be alot of pike!!

There is not an aeration system on Union.

Actually there is a good Pike population in Union. A few nice eyes too. Lotsa rough fish though, it's almost like Carp city.

I tried Union for pike before the open fishing started, didn't get a sniff. I'll probably try it this afternoon again.

went out there 2 days ago and made 2 large holes in the ice. waited all day and about an hour into the night.. the only thing that came up in the holes were 3 inch bullheads. I have done liberalized fishing before and this is not a good sign. The lake absolutely wreaks like a sespool. not sure about dora or pepin, but I helped some guys with nets last year on dora and did really well for northerns, perch, and a few eyes. I think the DNR opened union up a little to late this year. I was told that there were people down there looking with fish finders that see to the sides and they went to a different lake.. Hope they open up some other lakes before they smother!

I've caught a couple nice Pike there this past late Summer. So they are still there but maybe in fewer numbers now? And a guy I talked to at boat launch said he had caught few nice eyes too.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
