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.

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.

I was always scared to drive on an icy lake. What are safety points for driving on icy lakes?

Out there today in the afternoon around 2pm. Caught 3 pike, one of which was 60 cm. Wish people were smart to check their regs & throw the pike back in the water that are UNDER 63 com. Poachers.......

Anyone catching here? I'm wanting to take my son to catch some jacks. Any info would be appreciated.

by BigTiny on Jan. 25, 2017

I have major success with an orange 1/2 ounce or 3/8 jig head and a white rubber worm with a flat tail. Not sure what they are called. But regardless they seem to hammer it every time.

by Tack Man on Jan. 22, 2017

Try smelts on a leader/treble hook. 6-12 ft of water. I recently started trying frozen anchovies. The pike are fatter than last winter so I'm using bigger bait.

Star Star Star Star Star

by Goforgillie on Jan. 21, 2017

Can I ask what everyone is using for bait? I have been there a few times and I have fish on the flasher but can't get them to bite. Any help would be great. I have used jigs, jig spoon and rotating power minnow with maggots
