Hi- Was on DNR website the other day, and they had good things to say about these two lakes. Can anyone familiar w/ them share some info? Not looking for GPS co-ordinates or honey holes, just what type of lakes they are, and what may be a good choice of lure/bait. Thanks in advance.. 8-Ball.

Whatever bites- I like to go after everything, not limit myself to one species. Less chance of getting skunked!

Well Jewet lake has a lot of the game species. It also has a lot of different structural types. Try around the islands.

PP- What type of presentation/lures work well? Ever tried Stuart? Landings in decent shape for a larger boat? 8-Ball.

If you are after crappies, Stuart has a new crappie restriction, but I dont recall off hand what it is.

Well I need to know what time of year you will be going for. Now you can't fish for bass or walleyes or pike, so you will bo focusing on panfish. I like throwing small 1 or 2 inch plastics in the reeds( make sure to stay away from the bass spawning area) or using slip bobbers with crawlers or crappie minnows. With this cold weather, look for fish to be deep and tucked in close to cover such as sticks or weeds.

The landing on Stuart is small and awkward, especially for a big boat. These lakes are small enough that if you have fished before, you should be able to figure them out fairly quickly. Never fished Jewett, Stuart was nothing special the one time I fished it.

Yeah, the access and parking situation is ackward on Stuart for a large boat. I launch my boat ok, but the parking is the tough part. No dock at the launch.

For what its worth, I'll second jerkin'm. The few times I have been on the lake hasn't really impressed me all that much.

Stuart is a pretty good panfish lake. It's hard to keep the hammerhandles off your line though.. I usually fish it in the winter, but you gotta know where your going cause the Ice isn't safe in a lot of areas..Jewett was pretty good last spring for crappies.. Alot of people were catching crappies out there that were pretty decent, untill some algea disease killed a crap load of em.. I have know Idea what type of disease that was but It only killed a bunch of crappies.. I heard there was a bunch floating up on shore and stuff.. I wasn't out there to see it I just heard about it...

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
