Five Crappie limit on Sugar Lake

4 posts in this topic

I almost didn't notice this when I was browsing thru the new fishing regulations handbook, but they've implemented a 5 crappie limit on Sugar Lake. (All pike between 24" and 36" must also be released.)

Thought I'd post this in case others had missed this change.

I was on Sugar on Saturday fishing but I forgot to look to see if the change was posted in any way at the landing. I don't know if the DNR tends to post these types of changes or not.

Hopefully they will. Obviously all fisher people should read the regs before heading to a lake, but we also know that it doesn't always happen. Posting a big'ol sign up I think would help.

The fishing was so so.

Took a while to make our way out to where we wanted to fish of course with all the snow.

And the first spot was a bust, so we moved in shallower and caught enough sunnies for a meal.

Not the best day of fishing, but not the worst either. grin.gifgrin.gif

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
