Wolak, not yellow grubs, it comes from something they are feeding on. Makes their meat turn into sand kinda. Black spots on the skin and in the meat. Tried one....once. Try Tucker lake or Hilda.

Where abouts is the boat launch? Also what's it like?

Threw out a pickerel rig with 2 smelts from the boat launch and left it on rod holder , went back when pole started dancing , thought I was pulling in a big slob .. Actually had 2 hooked up , 57 and 52cm, would of been nice to have one keeper but still a pretty cool fishing story I have forever now

Between the four of us we caught sixty fish in four hours, all pike except for one small walleye, most were small to medium but did have a couple 62cm pike, couldn't find a bad spot!

Fishing was alright... Mostly small pike, one walleye, no perch... No keepers all day

Heard rumors of big perch but didn't catch one. Seen some big ones in the tent but that was it. Just some hammerheads. Ice was really strange, kind of slushy in some spots, I wouldn't go back till a nice cold snap maybe.
