I have been out to Horeshoe many times this year and haven't had any luck. Heard a guy caught some nice Crappies just off 22 in about 25 feet of water but it was another...should have been here yesterday story. Anyone else having any luck? I have seen many people way out from the public approach (off 22) every time I have driven past but haven't made my way out there. Is it worth walking way out there? Thanks for any info you can give.

Tough fishing out there as of late. You're right about the "shoulda been there yesterday" story. There are some other lakes in the area that are producing fish. The Chain is always worth a try though.

Good luck,

I think the area you are talking about is becker lake which is located across from the main public access off highway 22. I have been out there a couple times this year. Most of the sunfish are 5 to a pound. Very small! Every once in a while you will get a 3 to a pound. I got a few crappies that were just big enough to keep. Almost every hole you drill will have fish. Good lake to take a kid fishing. Small fishing, but a lot of them. Be careful, they started the aeration system out in the middle which is marked off.

      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....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.  
      Stuntz Bay Boathouse Historic District - Wikipedia   They have some info.
