5 stars for taking first timers out to catch a Pike......almost guaranteed. North side of bridge.

by WilSmith on Jul. 17, 2014

Caught at least 10 small Pike a few days ago and 4 tonight. Had numerous nibbles on single hook fish like lure. Threw them all back but loved every minute of it.

was about 10 in. Nice keeper. Only if he went for the hook and I pulled him out the hole. Strangely enough you can still keep 10. Even though it's almost rare for people to catch them here on hook. There must be lot's of them, but they don't grow big. Become eaten by the pike before they even have a chance to grow. Then there's to many small ones that don't eat the stuff we offer. I believe there is to many pike in that lake.

Most of the perch are small and get eaten quickly. Although there is the odd big one caught. Had one come to the surface of the hole ice fishing close to shore about 7 years ago. Water was 2-3 feet. The fish followed the lure on it's way to the surface hole and went back down.

Caught 2 small pike this afternoon and looked like quite a few trout jumping on the outh end at the inlet of the canal.

Hey best, sorry you had a lousy time. Take know what they say about payback.. Have you ever caught anything there?

To the guy out on the sea doo, I hope you know that you almost caused my pontoon boat to flip on me. Doing circles around me is just plain ignorant. I wasn't hurting anything by fishing. If you were trying to ruin someone's day. You succeeded. People like you are the ones who make it so people don't want to fish anymore. Too bad I couldn't find out your name....

Always good for a fish. Bite close to shore

Floated around in my belly tube for about 2 hours dragging large streamers, didn't get a sniff, two other guys in pontoon boats out as well, didn't see them catch anything either. Nice day, sunny very little wind, fished by the public boat launch and just west of it, both sides of the lake.

Iced another 10 pike today and missed a lot more. Kept moving around holes within a 50yard radius. Early morning they hit pretty good. After 12 o'clock I would see them on flasher looking at my bait and had to give a little jig action for a strike.

South end of lake. You will see all the holes. Use anchovies about one foot off the bottom. The take is really gentle let the fish bite. Good luck

It's easy to report those that are taking illegal fish. The report a poacher number is on the back of your license. Give them a call they are happy to hear from good people. I did and go a easy 400.00 and they lost all there gear and a nice big fine.

A lot of weeds, still 9 pike on the north channel. Used a Rapala cranckbait, 1 to 2 feet depth. Had to keep it close to the surface because of weeds. Ok for 4hrs of fishing.

I live a few blocks away and fish often, tons of easy to catch like in here.. Until the weeds grow out of control around the end of June. North canal is good until then. Just south of sandy beach is good as well

Caught a pike second cast where canal flows into lake, felt few nibbles after that. Got rained out. Seems promising

Star Star Star Star Star

by A2theD on May. 20, 2013

There is an abundance of canoeing, kayaking, motor boating, jet skiing..and oddly enough bathing.. While fishing I did not notice any abundance of fish. Infact I didn't even get a nibble. Someone on the Ifish report said to fish under the bridge. Unfortunately there were kids chucking huge stones underneath - paying them $5.00 did the trick!

by StoneFly on Jan. 5, 2013

Most the activity on the lake is quads and snowmobiles, some people skating and the odd ice fisherman. Try just north of sunset beach, water gets daily deep past the weed line. I haven't ice fished by I can get non stop action out there in the summer

The lake is so full of weeds you have to clean prop out everytime you move boat.For 40 bucks a boat they should have the weeds clear. Nothing but weeds caught there in the last 2 days

Tried fishing it on January 21st, the south end was busy with about half dozen ice sheds and another 4 groups scattered about. Went to the park and fire dept. access on the east side and tried to drill a couple of holes there. Drilled 3 holes, first one about 100 yards from shore and hit mud and rocks, second one about 200 yards from shore and it as about 6 inches of water after the ice and the third hole was about 250 yards from shore and there about a foot of water after the ice. This part of the lake is suppose to the the deep part. pretty much a waste of time, and I chipped my blades on my auger
