Bud Killer and S Reed, I caught a lot of small gills at Sleepy and pretty nuch struck out at Round. I think Round is getting fished out and I don't know whats going on at Sleepy. Too many fish and they are stunted, I don't know but you can catch hundreds the same size. I think you need to drive a ways to try somthing else. Maybe Sessions or Morrison. You guys pm me if you do any good and I'll do the same.

Fishing was good 30 yrs ago, we use to fish Muskrat Lk. and catch nice specks and pike, same with the other local lakes, But got tired of the dinks and these Lakes do get hit hard. I drive to other Lakes, but with gas prices dont know how much more trips i'll take this yr...

try muskrat lake i have had some success there this year. also check around with the lakes around the rose lake area. not going to name any specific but if it is pan fish your are after i am sure you wont be disappointed with potter lake. dont let the depth fool you and check out where all the holes are and you should find some nice blue gills. the other lakes around that area have been known to produce to.

Went by Hawk Island this afternoon there were three fire rigs and the dive team. Don't know if somebody went through or they were training. There was a car in the parking lot.

Hey pudstud, you hitting the bay anytime soon, might hit wicks tomarrow night...

It hasn't worked out for me yet. From what I am understanding most of the shad problem is coming to a close and the 'eyes are moving up to the river systems. Let me know how the ice and current is I would love to get out there soon. Good luck and keep those lines tight

I actually didn't do any fishing, I was kinda scared off by the fact no one was on the ice and the presence of the emergency crew:tdo12:
I might head out there tomorrow though. I have never ice fished it, so don't really know where to start, but I have a brand new portable fish finder I have been dying to try out. I will proabably spend more time drilling holes and figuring out how to dial in my finder than actually fishing :tdo12:

Go staight past the island on the north side to the other side. There is a weed bed over there that holds numbers of fish. I have not fished it yet this year. Are they still charging to park in the winter too?

Went to Hawk Island thursday afternoon with my roomate. First time out there for both of us, we fished by the island to start off and got fish rt away but were all dinks, we moved some and ended up in the cove that the bridge surrounds and all we caught were dink gills, no keepers. But still fun to get out and get some fish on the line!
