Bring a boat.

There is a 100yd area of open water in the middle.

I was out there today on the ice.

Are you sure it's open? I know where you're talking about about, but I thought it was just a part that froze later on. There are a few lakes in our area that have this open looking ice, but actually there is a bunch there.

Did you see waves?

Yes there are waves. I was 100yds away from it. Its a very BIG open water area

I was fishing on the blue ice you are thinking about.

The white ice was 8-11" thick. The blue ice was max 7" where I started and got down to 5" where I lost my courage to go further..

I couldnt get to the spot I wanted to because the ice got down to 5" where I stopped.

Go give it a look see.

Every time I have been by there this winter there was open water a 1/4 mile out from the waterworks.

Yeps, Centerville has open water. I doubt it will be ready for half ton trucks this winter.

Hi guys-

Just as a courtesy I was out yesterday- I went out from the boat launch park and walked towards the pump house, in 16'. Drilled about 30 holes, everytime I drilled I pulled one crappie or sunnies out and then nothing......finicky bite but the ice was about 7-8". All I had was Euro larvae and the seem to nibble on 'em.

Good luck,

Jug

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.

      Looks interesting.... any chance a video is on its way 🙂
