Orchard or Crystal Reports?

5 posts in this topic

I want to fish one of them this afternoon (CPR only). Any reports on bass or northern at either lake?

I haven't had the boat out in a long time... smile.gif

I was out on Orchard on Monday. It was the slowest its ever been for me out there. We boated one fish.

It could have been because of the bluebird skys after that big storm that came through Sunday, but that may just be a good excuse grin.gif. All I know is that I got wupped by the fish that evening.

This is not meant to keep you away from the lake, I've had some pretty unbeleivable days out there. Let me know how it goes, maybe those fish are turned back on again. Good Luck!

We were on Orchard for about 3 hours and only managed to catch 1 small bass and a lot of little sunfish.

I caught a 3.5 lb bass at crystal near the beach about two weeks ago. A few decent northerns too.

      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

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      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!
