Haven't fished it in a couple of years but use to spend my every summer up there until I was 18. Wanted to know if you can still catch some pretty nice panny's up there? I'm heading down there in a couple of weeks... I have my own spot to fish away from the crowds between the rushes and the island for crappies but, any good idea for ice sunny's would be appreciated.

Thanks and good fishing!

Not many people know that name for the lake...i have been on it for 30 years, no sunnies in the winter yet. i like looking for the walleyes and keeping up with the crappies keeps me busy too. i assume the reeds you are talking about are off the "point" of isle of pines??

yeh, to the north of the island there is almost like a sunken island.... long rushes and pencil weeds in the summer. Most of the cars an people that ice fish that lake congregate right there in the deep water between them. This is a good spot and fish can certainly be caught there but I usually have better success finding them off on my own. Plus once you find them they seem to stay in the area since there is no noise. I have never went out and actually targeted the walleyes however, I caught a 6 plus pounder there fishing for crappies in 2000. Was a lot of fun, he still is swimming so hopefully the lake will reproduce. My dad said back in the late 50's and 60's they would catch them pretty regular... Probably what happened to the lake. Anyway, I haven't caught the blue's there in the winter either, think I'm going to try and target them when I go....

Thanks for the response...

we caught and released a 25.5 inch eye the new years day off the west side of east side of church. all the walleyes being caught are big, unfortunatly most are being eaten.

Maybe we are talking about a different lake after all... No Church on the lake I'm talking about. Unless thats a reference to something else or there is a new one that has been built up there in the past few years. The one I'm referng to is off of HWY 47 for the public access however, you can also get to the lake by taking Red Indian Road.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
