Fished from 2-4. No interest in little lures. A half dozen pike showed up when I deadsticked a savage gear line thru burbot (smallest size). Three of those fish committed. Water was clear enough to see down to the bottom in 10'.

Fish lake often,not many large fish but many just shy of keeper size. We fish in water that is about 8 to 10 feet and have fair success.

A lot of weeds all around the lake, recommend using top water lure

Went yesterday and the weeds were too thick on the north end of the lake for any boating or fishing.

by Oilersfan73 on May. 22, 2018

Never been to Coal Lake but am interested since it is close. Is it deep enough to put a 20' Bayliner on or is that too much boat for it?

Thanks for your reply duckhunter33 and Riverbear! I try not to drive on the icy lake. If the ice is very thick, I'll drive on it. Merry Christmas to everybody!

Ram traffic starts. Lol. Btw if you are really nervous. Open your doors too. If the front goes in (god forbid) the doors should hopefully catch better ice.

by duckhunter33 on Dec. 23, 2017

Seatbelts off, windows down. Should be good to drive on with this cold snap we have had all week.
