Well, I've never fished it. I remember swimming there as a kid a long time ago. I can't tell you what people have been catching lately, but I can tell you what the DNR has to say about it. From the way the survey looked in 2000, there was quite a diverse fishing population, but most were pretty small in size. Several small walleye and crappies, and perch. Sunfish abound as in pretty much every lake in MN. What was really odd is that the Pike population was extremely low, so low they stocked a few adults. They attribute it to summerkill in 1999.

One thing I did find interesting is that in 02 they put in over 3000 yearling cats. Those that survived are probably at least in the 1 1/2 - 3lb range knowing how quick those suckers grow. That in itself might be worth checking out.
