Goose Lake report - August 19th

1 post in this topic

We had 3-4 hours Saturday evening to get a little fishing in, and the 4 year old was bugging me to take him to "Big" Goose, not "Little" Goose.

Anyways, I didn't realize there'd been an incident on / at the bridge that day, so we come driving up from the east side to use the landing at the "resort", and there's police tape everywhere and the road is blocked off.

Apparently (newspaper stories) a guy fell in the water and drowned in 10" of water.

Anyways, Dep. Sheriff says turn around, head north, come around the west side and you can launch, it's just the bridge is closed right now.

We take another 1/2 hour to figure out which road to take, since we've never been around the west side of the lake, come down the road, the road is blocked before we can get to the lake, again.

I got out, talked with the deputy and said we'd like to launch the boat. He said no, that the road was closed.

I said you might want to tell that to the deputy on the other side of the bridge, because he sent us all the way around to launch over here.

He checked with that deputy, then with a higher-up and finally gave us the okay to launch.

By this time it's almost 7, and if you've been outside lately, it gets dark around 8:30 now, so, needless to say, we didn't get much time to fish.

We fished the east side, caught about 10 crappies (7-8") a couple of perch, one small walleye (7") and one walleye about 13".

All of the fish would hit when we went over the bar at about 7-10' of water, except the larger walleye was in about 17' of water.

It wasn't BAD, could have been alot worse had the second deputy said "can't let you through, no way, no how".
