Anyone done any bass fishin at Gamehaven or Willow creek? I fished those two a lot last yr with pretty good success. The Gamehaven is a hike in there but the far end was productive with topwater or med sized white twisters. I havent had time to get there this yr yet tho. Might have to try this weekend and see if any action.

I've fished Willow about a 2 dozed times this summer. It's pretty easy for me because I'm walking distance from the dock. I've never been skunked yet, but I wouldn't say I've had any outstanding outtings either. I caught a 16" and a 14" largie and several dinks a while back and that was my best outting.

The weeds are really dying back, so a guy can fish most of the shorelines again. Each time I go, I try to get further and further from the dock and I seem to do better. At this point in the season, I'd work the middle of the water column or even the bottom. I've done my best out there with a Tadpole Spin from JB Lures. I also think one could do well with an Exude Comida (at least its been working for me in other bodies of water)

Decent day at Willow

Don't overlook chester woods. There are a good amount and size of fish in there and the ever elusive Channel cat. I haven't heard or seen to many people targeting chester's channels but i have seen some hogs come out of there. ike

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
