I'm not sure if anyone fished it over the winter. I know from last summer that there are lots of carp in the lake. An area minnow trapper worked the lake pretty hard most of the summer. I noticed he wasn't real selective on what he threw in the truck, lots of little bluegill and perch. I don't think much is being caught out of the lake. The DNR info on the lake says that the northern are good sized as far as length but very skinny. Walleye have been stocked but I haven't heard of anyone catching any eyes out of there in years. I remember like you said several years ago the perch were pretty good but haven't seen any of those either. It was pretty green last summer. Looked like green paint floating on top. Sorry, it doesn't sound real encouraging.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
