You may want to change your name to "perchmatt" or "smallcrappiematt" if you go there.

No seriously though, the people who bash that lake are the ones in the groups of 100s of houses- well its really no wonder why they are getting skunked. Too much noise and commotion for good numbers of fish to stick around.

I've fished that lake all my life. In the winter, you're best off to venture on your own away from the masses with a good lake map and gps (Try the areas from the NE corner of the lake to just W of the island on the North side of the lake)

Look for a weedline that tapers into a deeper basin this time of year and set up deeper during the day and work your way to the edge of the weeedline during lowlight periods.

Is you want a shot at getting into some decent fish do what SWMuskeye says and stay away from the crowds. Sorry, didn't mean to bash my hometown lake.

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

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.
