I have fished it before, it has lots of walleyes in right along the weedlines, but fishing it was a trick as the eurasian milfoil has taken over the lake along with what i think was curlyleaf pondweed. It also has some bass and hammerhandles. I really think it excels early in the season before weedgrowth gets heavy. There is a back bay where there is good bass fishing.

that is about all i know

tight lines

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
