It's hit and miss... Lots of "Out of No where" Shallow sand bars and dead heads... So don't go just blasting through until you kind of get the lay of the land etc..

And beware the landing has a wash out drop off... When the Concrete Runner end, it drops down like 5 feet... I got my axle and tire of my trailer hung up on it last year, and had to take one nasty cold dip... Pinned myself between the dock and the trailer lifing up while my buddy gaffed it!

So when you're backing it up, stop the instant the boat floats, and don't risk it any deeper.

It's best calling feature is the hearty year class of Mid 20's pike... If you're a master at Y-boning there's a meal to be caught in there.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.
