Ya got to love it when you have the whole lake to yourself. That lake should start to turn on soon. Did you try for any eyes? How was the water clarity? Good job on hook'n them bass. Did you have any northern or muskie follows?

Good to hear about some action out there. I was out there a couple weeks ago. picked up white bass on minnows at south end. water was very murky. I've heard reports of eyes at night on rapalas, anyone else experienced this? anyone else targeting eyes out there?

Thanks gmand. a couple years back it seemed like nobody was around to kick you out. what if you just stay out past dark? to they ticket, lock you in? any idea if they used bait or lures? are fish edible out of there...lots of nasty stuff in the ground around there i would think.

Well when the hard water comes, those rangers are waiting for the shack to be taken down......... :fishice And right before sunset too.

Guess they don't want to be late for supper, and can't blame them either.

The guys at Wampum start having you pack up just after 4! They don't mess around.

I have never been there; is a boat launch available or do you have to portage a small boat in?
