The lake is very cyclical, all the big ones were harvested and now the waiting game begins, Just 4 years ago half pound sunfish and nice crappies were common. The walleyes are usually stocked size too. Now and again youll catch nice ones but thats because most evade being harvested in the summer and take a pounding through the ice.

ace-

if you dont mind, what are you picking the walleyes up on?

i have been running a buckshot spoon w/fathead-head..and have not been having too much luck, being midseason i think i might switch to a deadstick with a hook and whole fathead.

One -Two punch Jigging and dead stickin with fatheads or small shiners. Most fish coming on dead stick red hook and small glow bead. The glow bead seems to be making the walleyes bite more after dark.

I was out on Spring today for the evening bite and caught a few crappies and sunnies nothing to bragg about though. One 12" and a bunch of 8" Crappies. No Walleyes to be seen either. The Crappies seemed to bite on the bigger minnows after it got dark, and small minnows and waxies before. I was in 21fow sand and scattered rock bottom with fish at the bottom to 5' suspended

Use to hit up this lake weekly before the ice wallys were all in the shallow like 2 fow. Green seemed to be the trick. Any lake that you can walk out your backyard throw a line in and catch a wally is a lake i'd love to live on. Too bad the real estate market on this puddle is astronomically high.

Scott. It's always said to be a good crappie lake and walleye lake which is true just depends on the fish. Back in the late 90s we could go out in the winter off hunters point and hammer crappies in the 12-14" range. Back in the spring of 05 the walleye were going crazy. Not much size but we were catching them maybe 40-50 a day using jigs and fatheads.

Plenty of crappies in the lake. Last 2 outings caught about 50 each time...only problem is they were all identical size...5" fish. this was on NE, NW and SW sides. Good population for the future though. \:\)

at the risk of sounding like a moron but what is deadsticking or how do you use this technique?

Deadsticking refers to setting a jig pole out and not jigging it or moving it at all. Most will use fatheads, crappie minnows, or shiners on a plain hook or small jig and just let the minnow do the work. Pretty deadly technique if the fish don't want a finesse approach. Hope that clears things up. ;\)

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.
