I have both summer and winter. There are a few decent bass to be had in the summer. In the winter Ive gone after the panfish but wasnt impressed. There are a lot of small perch. The crappies and 'gills are your average metro size. No walleyes exist, or their shouldnt be any...

I live right by the lake and fished it many times. I fished it alot in the summer as a young kid and never caught much of anything. I talked to a guy that lived on the lake and he said that basically the only thing left in the lake is carp and small panfish... not a very good fishing lake. Had fun at the beach on summer days tho.

The lake has gone under many transformations lately. It is small, but due to the limited access, has lots of possiblities,

I have seen lots of snakes and bass caught, but like others have said many small pannies. There is one deep spot straight out from the steps going down to the lake from the parking lot.

      If a stream is non-navigable but has been meandered, the shoreland owners own to the thread (centerline) of the stream. If a lake or stream is non-navigable and not meandered, ownership of the bed is as indicated on individual property deeds    its sad that just a few bad apples can ruin it for the rest of us,

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!
