Me and a few buddies are planning a day trip up to day lake in the Joyce estate. we hunt up there and have always wanted to fish it. I am wondering if any one else has tried to fish the lake? I was on the DNR site but found minnimal info. Any info on the lake would be greatly appreciated.

I could not find much on Day Lake either, it's a cool area I have fished Jesse and Big Turtle a bit North of there.
I would stop in Grand Rabids and try a few Bait stores for more info.

Good Luck.
