I heard that after the weed kill off they restocked with hybrid gills from sand lake because there was an excess there. I have not really fished for gills but have not caught them even by mistake. I only remember the mention of one or two being caught in the past two years. I would say there are probably some in there but if I was going to make a trip up from GR for gills I would probably stop off at Half Moon Lake or something and save 20 miles.
Thanks for the info. I used to go up there in the late 80's and we had no problem catching our limit, crickets in the summer and corn boar (sp?) in the winter just west of the launch on the south side of the lake. It seemed the lake went in cycles. First the rainbows and browns were the big catch then that died down and the gills were the thing. Then it was the walleyes. I am just getting back into Ice fishing and fishing in general. I have not heard much about the lake.
