Is this the lake North of New Prague?

If so it's deepest hole is 5ft and is subject to winter kill. Used to live over there and had friends close to the lake and nobody ever fished it.

DNR site states they used it as a rearing pond a few years ago though.

Yes that would be the lake. I grew up around it too. So just curious what people know about since i exlored it much of my childhood and teens. There is no actual lake maps of it and i swear it gets deeper than 5 feet. My buddys dad dove in and said it was like 8 in random spots b4 he touched muck. But who knows. We used to catch little bass, sunnies, carp and enough bullheads to never want to see one again. The DNR needs to dredge a hole in it somewhere and put a aerator in it to make it a healthy lake again. We were always the only people on this lake throughout the summer so never got any other peoples knowledge of it. If anyone knows anything comment

Use caution if you decide to go out there in the winter. A few years back a large spot in the middle of the lake opened up in the dead of winter for no apparant reason. Two winters ago I was snowmobiling out there when other lakes in the area had 16" of ice. I found open pockets of water randomly scattered around, but mostly on the NE side. I don't know if it is from carp, springs, or something else, but I stay off of it now. I used to snowmobile out there all the time and never gave it a second thought.

Check out the lake finder on the DNR website. There is a fish survey listed.

      Yeah I tried the wrench yesterday. I Can't get it to move with a load on it. With no load on the jack it does go up and down with the electric motor though. I ended up ordering a whole new jack since they're only $200. This one I'll take apart and try to fix it and keep it as a spare.

      Was out checking ice.....on west side....even though there is good ice closer to shore, when neighbor was trying to plow a road out farther, a lot of water was coming out of a crack. Please do not go out with a larger truck!!!!!

      I'm also thinking about going up this weekend. We were thinking about Barnacles or Red Door. It will be our first time out of either resorts. Any recommendation or opinions about the resorts and their roads? Thanks in advance!

      Thank you.. and thanks for the advise on the Duluth forum! I will look that up and subscribe.

      Thanks for your response! Sounds like fishing is pretty much the same on this end as Ontonagon. Aside from the rock reefs and possibility of snags on the bottom. I don't run lead core but have a pair of downriggers and some dipsies. I fish a lot on the surface with my Otter Boats with Rapalas and some spoons. I always run at least one dodger or flasher in the mix with a Howie's fly or a spin n glo behind it. Thanks again for your input! I appreciate it! Hopefully I can have a good weekend fishing!

      Glad your back Bryan! So far my season hasn't been one for the books but it haven’t been horrible. I’ve been waiting for your videos good to see your back man!

      Thanks for the input!  I definitely don't want to snag one of my rigger weights! I have otter boats I run off a mast on both side of the boat. I run surface spoons and stick baits off the lines. Works well out of Ontonagon and sounds like it will work here also. I have a few dipsies also but do not have lead core on any of my set ups. I run a flasher or dodger on one of my lines also. Usually on one of my dipsies. I pretty much sounds like fishing off Ontonagon except for the snags on the bottom of the north shore. Thanks for your wisdom! I appreciate it!

      I drove by the lake this weekend and saw a large amount of vehicles and houses out there.  We are finding the crappies either out deep in the holes suspended or they are hugging weeds.  I know huge difference but don't be afraid to go shallow or deep.  I wasn't too far from Crystal fishing 6 feet of water Saturday fishing cabbage and getting a mixed bag of panfish, pike, and bass coming through.
