I live just a couple of blocks from Penn Lake. Its at 86th and Penn. There is a jetty that I fish off of occasionally while walking the dog or just getting out for a bit. I've never caught anything there yet. I've only seen people shore fish the lake and haven't seen anyone out there in a canoe or boat. I don't know if motors are allowed. There is a boat ramp. I don't have a map of the lake and haven't seen any fish stocking/netting data. I believe I tryed to find it on the DNR lakefinder one time awhile ago and couldn't get a hit. I've talked with the neighbors when I see them out working in their lawns and one guy said people get fish out of there. Mainly panfish and an occasional northern. I know there are plenty of carp in there. I don't think the lake is very deep, the City of Bloomington runs an aerator there during the winter. I've never seen anyone out there ice fishing either.

Deepest area might hit 7 feet (in front of the aerator) Majority of lake is less than 4 foot.

AJ,

Yeah, I think there might be a few tigers left in the little lake that is Penn. Might have to hit it with king tut super frogs before dark some evening to verify. Musky Reon is back in action.
