Can someone guide me to a spot where I can park a car (not on the road) and just walk 5 min to shore fishing.

Not too many large perch, think people need to let this lake rest a couple years and let all these little ones get big. Fun catch and release lake though

Really slow, 4-5 inch bait steelers, not sure what all the fuss is about, everyone I talked to today was told to come here, painful at best.

That lady at the store blocking access to the lake should be ashamed of herself.

Spent about 4hrs on the lake. Fished the main part as well as the backside without a single pike. Able to catch juvenile perch 2-3" long anywhere in the lake in 5-13' of water.

Down side to this lake is the $13 fee to get down to it. I would recommend jackfish lake down the road.

went hear in late nov , early dec with the wife ,caught a few small stunted perch and a few small pike , was still fun this lake needs alot more people fishing it to help the stunted situation , more fishing = less stunted perch and maybe some keepers

Talked to some locals. Fishing is dead there. Everything you get isn't worth keeping.

Small little pond with crappy boat launch and congested dock so hard to pick up people and cost $12 to launch. Only good for swimming in

Lots of small and medium sized perch

This lake you need a boat to catch! Shore fishing is pretty slim to nil, better chance of catching a buzz

Hey we are heading up to mink on may long is there any good spots to shore fish from?

Great day fishing 6 pike 1 perch. Haven't been disappointed yet. I agree I would like to know of a good perch spot too.

by Fisherprice on Aug. 20, 2011

Unreal, have not yet been skunked this year. Can usually limit out with the pike but would like to find a good perch spot.
