SO anyone got some info on how the fishing was there sat. I saw about five or six boats fishing by the bridge there, a spot i have been eyeing up for a while now, i guess i wasnt the only one. just wondering how people did, any info would be great.

That bridge spot can be good.

I stopped for a peek a few years ago and saw 7 Walleyes landed in the 15 minutes I was watching.

I've heard of people catching walleyes, but have never seen it myself. I have seen northerns caught right off the pier by the boat launch.

If you go there, get out early. Any nice day there seems to be a few ski boats there, plus limited parking.

A buddy told me someone was netting fish on the lake the other day, so keep the TIP number handy!

The bridge area does hold some fish but nothing like it was a few years ago. I think that the amount of pressure that little area got for a while has kinda screwed it up. There are some better spots on the lake to catch fish.

Concreteman - pop me an e-mail, I fish the lake quite often. eric@siteplacement.net

Tuesday night after the wind calmed it was a nice night. I tried the outlet (long lake road bridge) and managed one small walleye. Later I went up the inlet (hiking bridge) with no luck aside from catching a couple neighbor boys smoking cigarettes.

Managed a couple crappies in one of the bays towards the end of the night.

Anybody have consistant luck on this lake with a couple tactics? I've caught the occasional eyeball in the weeds throwing shad raps, and a handful of them in moving water with floating raps and swim/jerk baits. Does lindy rigging pay off in the spring? I marked some fish close to the bottom in the south end of the lake in about 20 fow but I'm not sure what they were.

Late last summer I was marking fish on the south end in 20 fow as well. It was getting dark and the bites started coming - bullheads!

They do catch eyes off the fishing dock, so they must be down there as well.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
