There is an aerator in the small bay just left of the access. I heard they are going to turn it on soon.

We have caught some small crappies over by the dam.....nothing of size and no keepers. Haven't hit any eye's, but only been out a couple times for 4 or so hours.

Yes, people are driving out there. Don't drive next to the dam....thats about the only place to worry about on Martin that I am aware of. You will usually see a little bit of open water over there. We walk on from that location...but no full size vehicles. My parent live on the north side of the lake.

I wasn't aware of the aerator.....good to know. Although I don't fish that area much.

I don't think there's an aerator in that lake. There is moving water by the access though. I believe the little creek that hooks to Linwood and Island either leave there or comes in there.

I didn't think there was an aerator either....but I would have to call my parents to double check.

The public boat access is on the South end of the lake. You can park and walk on to the east side of the lake by the dam (little creek) that goes under the road. There is a dam there for the water leaving the lake.

Nope, there is moving water in the little bay by the access. Of course, it might not be moving much right now. But, I have seen a couple years where the creek coming in there makes it a little wet. Not anything that would prevent you from accessing the lake though.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
