Pleasant Lake Report

1 post in this topic

Just returned from a week-long stay on Pleasant Lake and am pleased to report excellent bass fishing with plenty of fish over 17" to be had - most especially in very shallow water. If the first day was a tournament I would have had a 20+ lb 5-fish bag and while none of the other days was quite that good each day had several good sized fish.

For numbers (and fun) I threw a topwater over the cabbage and caught a bunch of 1-2 lb fish - even caught two on same cast on a Zara Puppy - one on each treble.

One guy caught a 28+" walleye under a dock of all places.

Saw quite a few big crappies come out of the lake as well.

      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!
