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).

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
