Even in the winter its green with lots of nasty stuff that floats up into your hole sick. Second worst lake in the area for water quality(Meyhew is the worst)I personaly would not eat the fish out of there.

Little rock does have a healthy population of naturaly reproducing walleyes and some decent size crappies so it can be an intresting lake to fish.

I have been out a fair amount this year. The walleyes tend to be decent size 15"-17". I try to get away from the packs though. There are a few spots that have not been drilled yet. The big part of lake in 15'. I cant speak for the crappies. The walleyes sure like rosies red minnows!city

I'm out there Every Sat. Sun. Morning and night! Some of the better fishing i can count on! People say "I'd wouldn't eat the fish outta there" Well that's fine with me. Where do you think the Nice Walleyes come from that lake???? Yep the Mississippi River. Anyway, Keep you sticks down!! Did anyone see that house that fell threw prob like wed-thurs last week. Last weekend it was about half in and half out of the ice?

Yeah I think I seen that same house. Made me feel sketchy about consistent ice, was wondering what ice thickness people have been finding. What time of day is the best fishing.

There are great fish in the lake, but you have to do some sorting for the crappies. There are some real nice walleyes in there, too, but I'm always hit or miss with them. Some years I've done real well....other years, no so much, and I can't figure out why. But it's close to home and sure for some action, so I like heading out there now and then.

I am out there from 630-10am for crappies and from 4-630pm, Nice crappies at night 11-13" few in between. Walleye only bite for about an hour!! I use a Clam Scout or a Clam Explorer. Come on over.

I was out on Little Rock this evening from 4:30 to 7:00. Only caught two walleyes but very nice size. 1 22" and 1 26" both C & R. Lots of trucks driving out, be cautious though, one house fell in last week and I only had 12 inches where I was located. Happy Fishing!

Good nice to hear, Where you near the 9-10' Flat? If you don't mind me asking? There was about 10-15 houses there last sunday.

I was a little further north. Tried to get away from all the people. I did talk to one guy in that group of houses and he didn't get anything. Also saw the local CO and he said there were some guys a little further north that had kept some bigger perch (i've never caught one out there more than 5 inches :S)

I heard the crappies were biting good out there earlier in the year. I havnt heard anything in a while though. I have gave it some thought about heading out there to try it out. But like many others, I wouldnt eat fish out of there. That lake has ALWAYS been nasty and all the chemicals and crapped they dumped into there the past 7-8 years... No thanks. (I wont eat fish outta the Mississippi either though).

As far as I know, the bite is usually pretty consistent out there on late ice...especially if you can find the good spots. There are a few nice crappies in the lake, but the VAST majority are too small for me to keep. Add in to that the leaking septic tanks, and I'm not all that interested except for some fun action on small crappies on light line...with the occasional largemouth or walley mixed in. Fun lake for kids, but there are better ones around.

Have not been out there but if it's like some of the other lakes in the area you might need waders to get out to good ice after today.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      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?  
    • delcecchi
      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.
    • Gone Out Fishin
      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.
