I dropped a pontoon in there last week. It is still pretty low, but you can get in. You just need to keep it trimmed up while going out. Gull and Round are the only lakes that are at normal levels, the rest are just a little better than last fall. Hopefully we get a little rain this summer. Its tough to start the year at low levels.

I live on the lake and cant get my boat out there. they dredged the landing but still not deep enough for my 19' runabout. the motor hole wasnt even deep enough to get the rollers wet on the trailer. luckily was able to get out in front of my house-dont know about getting it out though!

Does any of the resorts have a deep enough access that we could use? I'm thinking the resort on the SW bay might work if the landing is too shallow? I guess it could be worse - I could have a cabin on Sandbar Lake instead.

Has anyone fished this lake so far this year for crappies or walters?

Well, I hit the lake tonight. The access is VERY shallow, as there is about a foot of water at the shallowest point. Good thing the water is warming up so you can get out of the boat and not freeze your butt off.

Got two walleyes on the south end, using leeches.

I did see a Fishing Minnesota sticker on a Ford pickup at the access. Meat-Run, was that you?

Is anyone else fishing this lake?

yeah, picking up 2 is not bad for this lake. was out till 10:00 and caught 2 but the lightning scared us off. I got my big boat in at cozy bay but is still shallow. probally end up leaving it out there as too much work going in and out. If you see me I'm in the maroon/white 19' four winns cruiser. otherwise it will be on the lift near cozy bay. maybe i'll see you out there as I am out there 2-5 nights a week

Icicle,

No sorry it wasn't me. I was thinking about getting a FM sticker though. I'm more curious about the water levels for a particular reason, BASS opener. Guys thanks for all the help and posting your findings on water levels. I have heard that Edward can be a good lake but because of low water levels I'm going to pick another lake. The access really isn't my concern more than the structure I want to fish.

Later,

I shouldn't have an issue launching a 16 footer, should I? I fear that when I get up there later in June that the water level will be around the same...since rain fall seems to be in short supply lately.

Also, got a map and GPS of the lake...I can kind of figure out where you guys are fishing (or at least get close)...but any suggestions as far as bait/speed/etc.? I'm going to attempt to target walleye. Thanks all in adavance, it is greatly appreciated.

should be o.k. But my neighbor just launched his 16' with a 30 horse and had to walk it out. If there is a strong east wind it will be tough. did pretty well last night in about 6 fow

You can put in at Cozy Bay...I helped put in the docks there this year, and we anticipated low water. The owner is a good guy, so ask about where to go. He is always happy to give alittle. Water depth should be good unless the lake completely dries up. Water was low when the docks went in, so the docks went out further. Should be good for the season, if not, we will be back to adjust.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings
    • Big Red Lodge
      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
