fished it in the spring the thing is loaded with 5 inch crappies but there are a few nice pike and catfish to be had but i mean a few... the water is also very bad and comes straight out of the sewers i believe.. the dnr was talking about dredging the lake because there is so much [PoorWordUsage] on the bottom...

Never tried through the ice though...

My neighbor took his family out there about 10 years ago. They came back with a pail full of nice sunnies. He cleaned them for a couple of hours and ate them. You know, he has had some kind of tick or twitch eversince, and his kids walk in cirlces.

Fished it twice this year and a lot in the past. As the crappieman says there are a few pike and catfish with healthier populations of crappies and sunfish. Nothing large by any means and noticeably smaller in the last year. Fish right in the weeds, 5 feet and you'll do fine with 5-6 in. sunnies. One note as stated above not the cleanest lake and the fish all have neascus(black spot).

it used to have very nice sunnies8-9 inches, now it is fished out. too bad it was a fun little lake but yes it is basically a drainage pond for the surrounding community.

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
