If you have a boat troll from the drop-off at the point to the hump in front of the swim beach. If no boat, large egg weight and sucker, do a 'HAPPY GILLMORE' out as far as you can.

The north and south ends of the lakes are shallow and get very weedy. If you are fishing in a boat you could manage fishing these areas(I've caught pike fishing bass in these areas) the rest of the lake gets deeper and there are actualy weedlines and you could soak a bobber and minnow from shore easily, though I would shy away from the docks with the other people fishing. I think the point is an okay spot to start with, but I would move around.

Hey Rincrat,

You remind me of me when I was your age. I used to fish Bush a lot. We had good luck on the West side if you can get past the weeds. I think its great you are that into fishing with all the other distractions there are in life for a teenager. Keep it up and good luck fishing! Dan

The point is almost as bad as the docks with other people fishing, these are not the types of spots I like to fish personally. I would just move around and cast out to the weedlines. I fished there a lot as a kid too(wasnt that long ago). Still do occasionally

      Nice gill Rick

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
