My dad was out there on Tuesday night, caught a few crappies, but all of them were small as could be he said.

I sure hope people are using their heads out there, it will only take a week or two to completely fish out that little lake. Please take caution on smaller bodies of water and practice C&R! Good luck all!

Thats it? I counted 14 vehicles parked along the service road today at 2:00. It looked like the Gull Lake tournament out there. Im glad I opted for a less crowded lake.

I have found a few keepers the past few days, but they are far out numbered by very small crappies. I think someone caught a couple of "keepers" stretched the truth some.

Maybe in a few years the size will be better.

"Maybe in a few years the size will be better"

I could be if there weren't 14 people keeping fish every time out. Achman is a very small lake that wouldn't take much to fish out.

Looks like quite the gathering tonight as I drove by to another spot. Must have been 30 portables out there at 5:30.

I myself did alright on the crappies. Nothing big but quite a few in the 9-10.5" range. Plastics outfished minnows and waxies 3:1 and also accounted for the bigger fish.

WTF is going on at Achman? Drove by last night around the same time Borch passed by and saw the zoo as well. I fished this lake in my college days both open water and ice and didn't have much luck at all. There must be something biting to have that many people out there!

Like others have said I hope people are throwing a few back (yeah right). I'm sure there are fish to be had out there but even if the action is marginal, it is a good little lake to stop by and fish since it is so convenient...probably one of the easiest and closest lakes around to just walk out and set up quick during a winter that most wouldn't (and shouldn't) feel comfortable driving on the area lakes.

I haven't fished it but I talked to a guy that was out there and he said they were catching 7" crappies and yes he stated a lot of people were keeping them. To each his own I guess!!!

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
