Does anyone out there fish this lake? I've seen Mazaska mentioned and I believe it is like right across the road from Shields, yet I haven't heard a thing all winter about that lake, except earlier on about some bad ice. Anyone do anything out there this winter?

Been out there a couple times this winter. Never anything really hot. Supposed to be sunnies biting and last time I was down there they said the northerns were heating up...of course that doesn't do much good anymore! It's a decent little lake. The water levels really dropped on it last summer though.

MHS...Thank you! From the lack of response on this lake, I thought that perhaps I was asking about it in the wrong geographical location, but it's right there in the south/central area.

Unless it was filled with toxic waste, I thought that someone on the board must fish it once in awhile? Thanks again.

I went by it a few days ago. Looked like deep snow and water to deal with. May not be as bad as it looks though

I have been out on this lake many times, both hard and soft water. Have been given the "secret spot" for both seasons and to date I have never came home from that lake with anything but a sunburn or cold feet, depending on the season. I know that here are fish in there, I have just not been lucky enough to find them. Someday! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
