the cisco population isnt what it once was there for the night troll isnt as effective as it one was, i tried it a few times last summer, June, and had no success. I know guys who caught a few in July and August trolling but i found much better success else where. hope this helps, Jonah

Hey THANK YOU ya know the only place I've fished on that lake is along the old road bed a couple of times and thats it, messed up a prop tho hit a stump coming into the landing one night, I really like that deep water trolling dont have to deal with the weeds etc. just cruise and catch fish. Do you fish it alot?

i had lots of night guide trips out there last summer. if i fish by my self i usually fish it during the day. to avoid stumps i recomend using the south acess and stay in to the left as you head toward the lake. Jonah

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
