I was up there yesterday. Fished the north end of the lake from shallow to near the bottom of the break. Didn't mark any fish except one in about 7 feet of water. There wasn't much of a weedline anywhere. Caught a nice pike on a tipup with a shiner in about 6 feet of water and that was it. Most people on the north end were spearing. Noticed quite a few people on the east side but didnt venture over there.

Hey thanks, but I ended taking the kid out to WBL. Did ok with pans. I'm going to try to get out there this week.

Watch out for the blocks of ice that the spear fishers yank out of their holes. Most aren't marked and they look as if they could do significant damage to a vehicle.

Im not sure but I thought Sqare was a designated Trout lake? If so that would mean you cannot have live bait nor can you fish with 2 lines....IF someone else could chirp in I would apprecate it, it would be fun to watch the trout take a minnow or even have a tip up outside for those pesky toothy critters.

That's the funny part about lakes with trout in them. They can be called stream trout lakes or lake trout lakes. These lakes can then be classified as a designated trout lake or a trout lake with special regulations. It is the designated trout lakes that limit live bait and multiple line use. Square lake is a stream trout lake with special regulations. The special regulation is that you have to C&R the first 28 days of the season and in October, the rest of the time is a 2 fish bag limit. Bring your minnows and fish away.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.
