I'm hearing its just a lot of tiny perch. ice should be good to go, it was over 10 inches before the cold snap.

Curious if anyone is seeing any walleye in the lake.

there are walleye but few and far between. If you're after walleye or pike there are better lakes for sure. Tiny perch are everywhere though

Lots of ice and lots of perch. Few walleye and pike to find. Only reason to go would be for kids. Piles of small perch and are easily caught.

Nice scenery and pretty enclosed so usually not very windy either. Just expect to catch a ton of little ones if you go.

Lots of little fish, a few 10".

Find 20-30ft of water during the day. Little shallower in the evening.

16-18" ice.

Fish and Wildlife was out yesterday checking folks. Very nice guy and he is interested in the lake and is helpful.

Caught 2 30" pike on the Jaw Jacker in 20 ft.

Taking the wife and the little one tomorrow, is the campground the only access to the lake and are trucks driving on the lack.

Thanks,
