I dropped a pontoon in there last week. It is still pretty low, but you can get in. You just need to keep it trimmed up while going out. Gull and Round are the only lakes that are at normal levels, the rest are just a little better than last fall. Hopefully we get a little rain this summer. Its tough to start the year at low levels.

I live on the lake and cant get my boat out there. they dredged the landing but still not deep enough for my 19' runabout. the motor hole wasnt even deep enough to get the rollers wet on the trailer. luckily was able to get out in front of my house-dont know about getting it out though!

Does any of the resorts have a deep enough access that we could use? I'm thinking the resort on the SW bay might work if the landing is too shallow? I guess it could be worse - I could have a cabin on Sandbar Lake instead.

Has anyone fished this lake so far this year for crappies or walters?

Well, I hit the lake tonight. The access is VERY shallow, as there is about a foot of water at the shallowest point. Good thing the water is warming up so you can get out of the boat and not freeze your butt off.

Got two walleyes on the south end, using leeches.

I did see a Fishing Minnesota sticker on a Ford pickup at the access. Meat-Run, was that you?

Is anyone else fishing this lake?

yeah, picking up 2 is not bad for this lake. was out till 10:00 and caught 2 but the lightning scared us off. I got my big boat in at cozy bay but is still shallow. probally end up leaving it out there as too much work going in and out. If you see me I'm in the maroon/white 19' four winns cruiser. otherwise it will be on the lift near cozy bay. maybe i'll see you out there as I am out there 2-5 nights a week

Icicle,

No sorry it wasn't me. I was thinking about getting a FM sticker though. I'm more curious about the water levels for a particular reason, BASS opener. Guys thanks for all the help and posting your findings on water levels. I have heard that Edward can be a good lake but because of low water levels I'm going to pick another lake. The access really isn't my concern more than the structure I want to fish.

Later,

I shouldn't have an issue launching a 16 footer, should I? I fear that when I get up there later in June that the water level will be around the same...since rain fall seems to be in short supply lately.

Also, got a map and GPS of the lake...I can kind of figure out where you guys are fishing (or at least get close)...but any suggestions as far as bait/speed/etc.? I'm going to attempt to target walleye. Thanks all in adavance, it is greatly appreciated.

should be o.k. But my neighbor just launched his 16' with a 30 horse and had to walk it out. If there is a strong east wind it will be tough. did pretty well last night in about 6 fow

You can put in at Cozy Bay...I helped put in the docks there this year, and we anticipated low water. The owner is a good guy, so ask about where to go. He is always happy to give alittle. Water depth should be good unless the lake completely dries up. Water was low when the docks went in, so the docks went out further. Should be good for the season, if not, we will be back to adjust.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      When I fished Trout Lake a lot live Light Northers Suckers under a tip-up would out catch Ciscos every day of the week!

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
