My parents just bought a place on Ann Lake. I was wondering (i.e., hopeing) that I could find out some additional infomation about the lake and/or area. Such as how is the fishing for crappies, walleyes northerns & bass? Does the lake get a lot of fishing pressure during the open water season? How about ice fishing? Does anyone duck hunt on it?(Is it any good). Does the lake Ann WMA get a lot of hunting pressure. (I bow hunt)
Any info would be appriciated. (Just trying to accelerate the learning curve) Thanks, Jim

Your parents picked a fine lake to purchase a cabin on. Ann is probably best known for quality panfish. But, it is well known by many, so it does get a fair amount of pressure. A buddy of mine bass fished it a couple times this past summer and said it lakced numbers but didn't lack size. Plus, there's supposed to be a fishable population of smallmouth in there, but I have yet to verify that myself or with a good source.

It does draw a crowd on weekends during the duck season. Go during the week if you can.

Hope you enjoy Ann and the other East Central Lakes as much as I do. Let us know how it works out for you.

BTW - If you're into trailering your boat, there's some pretty darn good lakes just to the East of Ann. The Pine Lakes come to mind as great bass and pike lakes.
