I was going to say the same thing. Tough lake in august. Fish deep weedlines, and stay away from the islands.

thanks for the info,but I have to ask why am i staying away from the islands?? I know one Island has access to deep water pretty fast and was thinking it could hold a few fish because of a transistion area

bassmasher,most of property owners on north side have or are putting boats and pontoons on trailers because of draught.

Seems that lake has again dropped several feet in depth,and on side we live by it is second year in a row that neighbors have been forced to load unload and reload etc to be boating.

Havent seen the weed cutter move very much and know one resort owner on south side that has moved docks and lifts three times this season.

Inlet end is dry with geese and 3 to 4 foot weeds,grasses growing above ground[silt].

You may want to check out lake and determine what these changes make for fishing before your tourney.

Landing on west end might be diffucult for boats on bunk trailers.

Ray of hope,panfish are biting

I dont hardly even fish Nest until August! crazy.gif! The smallies are always going in August. Pop-Rs, Spooks, Tubes you find them and theyll be biting! Look for a rock or two maybe??? Youll get bigger smallies there than on green! Kandi Bass League always stomps the heavy smallies then. grin.gif August is the time to do it!

Have fun! wink.gif

Hi I am new to this site. We are going to be coming to Nest lake the middle of September. Was wondering how the water level is? Last year it was low, we hit a rock & bent the prop when we put in on east boat ramp. Isn't there one on the NW corner of the lake? If so is it any better?

Thanks

Def

We were told that when ski team is done with shows that the dam is lowered at New London letting water from mill Pond and river thru to Nest.

Has any one heard this before.???

Ya the are fish deep out there. Lot of 3 lb plus largemouth going crazy for the jign'pig.... I dont want to give spots but the fishings been awsome for bass!

Just curious.... anyone fish in the slop there on Nest? I know fish love slop!, but it looks so bad and the waters down, doesnt the water almost stagnate? DO fish leave it when it gets so bad? crazy.gif

slimgrizzly,brought the kayak out of shed and am going to try some of the slop.'

Club i belong to gave DNR a oxygen monitor couple years ago and am going to try and borrow it to see what parts of water do and do not contain fish breathable habitat.

Figure its about time to try weird things and might as well start with nest.

20 pound line some noisy top water stuff for slop and maybe some MUSKY stuff for openings along weed beds where its deeper.

Did I just say that i am going to try to catch a MUSKY on Nest?????

      Trying to stay on Topic from what I read. Ice out by opener.......so
    • delcecchi
      Sounds like the record of May 23 is looking safe for another year... 
    • BRULEDRIFTER
      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.  
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff

      18 days to opener,  I hope there is some open water we can fish.  our group can't reschedule due to work issues.  Come on Sun/Rain!!!  Our golf courses are just opening up today!!  smh

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On!
