Sheilds Lake

5 posts in this topic

Anyone have any info on this lake. Thought about giving it a shot. I don't have a boat so is there good fishing potential from shore? What can you catch from shore there?

Is there a place to rent boats on the lake, either motor boats, pontoons or canoes?

Thanks for the info.

there is a camping/resort area for campers on the northside next to the landing. They are under new ownership and have a bait shop, boat rental, and docks. Owner is nice, he'll give you some tips. Good bass lake,lots of sheepshead, bullheads, and dogfish though. Used to be a good crappie lake haven't heard much lately.

although i haven't been on that lake for a few years; it used to be a great lake for northerns in the back bays around the clumps of weeds using spinerbaits or inlines.

I was there about 3 weeks ago and the water level was so low on the north side by the campgrounds his landing is closed as he is in about 6 inches of water. Also he said he couldn't get his boats out as most of them have no props left because of people hitting rocks.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
