4 wheeler travel is safe. Fishing has been on the slow side though.

We've been fishing in the middle the past week and it's been slow. Have heard it's been better over by the 'other' campground.

It belongs to a friend of mine. He's leaving for Florida next Tuesday for two weeks, so it's coming off by this weekend. I've got my portable in the truck so my season goes as long as you can drive out.

Took a look last Sunday, was still frozen up to shore. Still walkable, probably 4-wheelerable. I can stop by there this afternoon and post an update.

Stopped by Thursday afternoon. Ice is still very walkable. It's still up to shore at the launch. Color is white to light gray, no real dark spots.

Looks like it is time to head north and put the dock and start the spring clean-up.

Hi, we're looking at spending some time on Oak Lake - does anyone have any advice as to the quality of the water, fishing production and any other information you care to share? Any information you can provide would be most appreciated!

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
