Guys, try not to be so rough on the newbie. There are some lakes east of Hugo that are worth trying. Without giving away any secrets or anything along those lines, one good way to search out unchartered waters on your own is to go to a mapping site like google maps, and find waters that look large enough to support a population. Most times if you zoom in enough, the lake name will pop up. Then, armed with the name, and the county (Washington), you can head to the DNR site and check the reports and look at maps.

If I am going to fish any new water or am looking for new water, this is my exact plan of attack. When you find a lake with a good number of the target species, ask a question or two on here and you can usually find some really good answers. Some people will laugh at your inquiries, but others will try to help you as best as possible. If you head just north east of Hugo, there are quite a few small lakes. I just recently went through the process of looking at all of them about two weeks ago trying to find productive looking late ice panfish waters. If I can be of any additional help, let me know.

Hugonian and midcoast, don't take this as a shot at you guys cause that is not at all what it is intended to be. You guys just happened to post before me.

By the way, last weekend we did a trip to Lake of the Woods, and I brought up the idea of stopping at a lake somewhere along the way home. I must have searched over 100 lakes in this exact same manner for a couple weeks until I found the one I wanted to fish. It payed off, as we were able to walk away with 19 very respectable perch in just a couple hours, along with a sunburn, and a new avatar photo.

Here is a bigger version of the avatar. It wasn't a monster, but for a first time on the lake, over 2000 acres, with a ton of structure, I think we did alright.

I think my buddy's right leg is shorter than his left. All the pictures he takes seem to lean a little to the right.

Tom,

No offense taken. I AM going to be fishing a sweet honeyhole east of Hugo on Saturday. Private lake. I am thinking it may be the same lake Maxing is referring to.

The plot thickens.

I do not know of the private lake you guys are talking about, but I have had the good fortune to fish some private lakes down south. Many of them were stocked years ago and have natural reproduction since the first stocking. I think it is fun to fish private water, as it is usually managed pretty well and has some really healthy fish.

Just looked on a map and counted 17 lakes 'just east of Hugo'. Have fished a couple of them, and only a few showed accesses. Hmmmm, might have to try to get to a couple more of them, quickly....

Ive checked lots of em out. Some are alright lots are shallow. Private property/no legal access around most of them. Ive seen peoples vehicles (2 in one day) towed from where they parked on the road.
