I have fished this small lake three times this year and have caught quality crappie and bluegill. There is a concrete boat ramp and room for roughly 8 to 10 rigs " its a gravel parking lot so it depends on how others park.

Little lake is shallow, stained and full of pads and milfoil. This 159 acre

A couple of weeks ago the crappie were on a little reed island to the right of the boat ramp. Caught 25 to 30 over 9 inches in 2 feet of water " kept 5 7 inchers for the frying pan"

Yesterday I fished the island for 1 hour and no hits, moved to the lilly pads in the Northwest corner of the lake and found crappie on the most outer edge.

All crappie were caught on a Flu Flu with either a minnow or wax worm.

This would not be the best lake to take a young child. The action can get slow while your trying to locate the fish but when you do get a hit its generally and nice fish.

Bluegill are spotty "at least they have been for me" on all my trips I have caught 10 crappie for each bluegill. The largest bluegill caught and released was a shade over 10 inches.

Also if you do fish this lake please keep the smaller fish for the pan. This is a small lake.

Good Fishing

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
