Anyone been fishing this lake much? I've been out 4 times with not much luck. The first two times I was out in front of the VFW in a shack when the ice was about 4-8 inches. All we got was some dinky northern and a small crappie or two. The next time we tried to go out near the rock pile and due to the layering of the ice, the front half of my buddies car got hung up in some slush and it took us about 2 hours to get more of our friends out there and one very kind fellow ice fisherman to help push us out of this hole we were in. After that we decided to call it a night and be thankful we were able to get it off the ice. Then the most recent time, on saturday afternoon, I walked out about a hundred yards from the rock pile, away from the houses. Threw out a tip up but had no luck, but I was jigging and caught a bunch of smaller perch and two small walleye, so that kept me entertained. Talking to some people around me it sounded like I was the only one catching much, and that got me wondering how everyone else was doing out there. There's quite a few shacks out there!
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
