A week or so after the Opener, we decided to stay local to maximize fishing time on a short outing. The alum treatment from last year on this lake really has water clear and the weeds booming! Making long casts with Squarebills yielded a few smaller bass and pike and then we started catching some bigger fish (both Pike and Bass) than I'm used to on this lake, mostly on Spinnerbaits, and had a productive couple hours before the wind finally blew us off the lake but not before a boat side Muskie encounter.
Glad to see the lake picking up a bit. I quit fishing it a few years ago because of the frustration of finding the boat launch full and nothing but 7 inch crappies. 10 years ago, you could catch a bunch of decent sized fish with the ocasional walleye.
The lake is still full of 7 inch crappie and its still busy. We usually go out there when we just want to kick back and relax while catching a few fish. You can almost always find something willing to bite as long as you aren't picky about size.
