Apple Lake

4 posts in this topic

Hey everybody! I'm a newbie here but i've been reading a lot and i want to thank you guys for all of the great info. There is a lot of priceless knowledge within these forums. I hope that maybe i can contribute to it sometime.

What i wanted to ask is if anyone has fished Apple lake and if so is it any good? I heard a rumor that walleyes have been caught out of there. Any validity to these rumors?

Hi Dood. Welcome. Not a rumor.I live less than a mile from it. Not a large population but very nice size if you can get them to cooperate. Lots of forage.Lots of weeds.One of the more picturesque spots around here. Colors a beautiful right now.Ususally spring fish it or late fall and winter.

I took a drive on sunday morning to see if i could find apple and to see if it was even accessible. Very scenic. The maples were on fire in the morning sunlight it was beautiful. But thanks for confirming. i have heard also that they are nice fish in there. I might have to check it out this winter. What is the deepest it gets?

Good Luck with that one tongue.gif, ive wasted many-a-day chasing those same rumors, if you like catching a bazzillion perch that are 3 inches long, or 8-10 inches and infested with worms, then go buck wild. im sorry man, i think the few walleyes that remain in that lake are no longer. it was used as a rearing pond years ago(80's)by the DNR, but it isnt managed for anything so i dont think there is a great population of game fish in there anymore. it also is a very small lake, that now seeing it on this site, its sure to have been fished out by now. but i know the lake pretty well, its about 20ft deep, pretty much a bowl, no major structure, lots of weeds, and did i mention there's a $%!T TON if perch!
