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.

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck

      Thanks Hoey.

      Good luck.  There are a gazillion of those corner caps online.

      Excellent Del, closest one I have seen so far! Thanks a bunch, I'll check it out
    • delcecchi
      I did a google on "corner cap" and gunwale corner cap.... Saw some stuff that looked like it would work.   here is one.   this is from Australia but probably could find something here.   Also a bunch of pontoon stuff might be adaptable.     Another thought is to look at Lund models and find one that uses the same hull as your boat only is more recent....   My guess is that Lund has been using basically the same hulls for a bunch of different models for years.   I bet you can find one that has similar corner caps as what you need.   You could even give them a call.
