Anyone ever hike in on those trails off of Highway 5, and if so...Have you caught anything or is am I imagining that there might be fish in there?

I tried that lake once many years ago and found tons of nice size gills. They were wormy though....don't know if things have cleared up since, but you should keep an eye out while cleaning any fish.

I used to live next to the park there. That lake has had times when there were sunfish in it but it's been years since I've seen it. It used to be every 5 yuears or so they would boom and you would see tons of people fishing it for the gills. I tried it a few years ago with no success. Just saw minnows in the lake.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
