try over by the road (pilot knob). There is rip rap that lines that bank. The only time I fished it in a canoe, thats where I caught them...about 3 years ago now

Used to fish the lake a couple years back and did good along the shore of the main basin(also the road). There are bass in there!

Have you tried Holland Lake, where Lexington runs into Cliff? There are some killer bass in there- just put 'em back when you're done!

You'll want a canoe or float tube. Once you get away from the pier the pressure is nominal.

I've found that Fish is a spring/late fall lake. Haven't had much luck out there in the summer heat unless the bait is either stationary or worked extremely slowly. Don't have any idea why. I've caught more bass ice-fishing out there than I hate June-July-August!

Yeah its not uncommon to see some real bass pigs out of Holland. All the fishing pressure comes mostly from the pier only. So if you want a chance to catch them hogs you gotta get out on the lake.

Fish still puts out a nice bass occasionally. But its nothing like it was 15yrs ago. The rocks by pilot knob road side is a good start.

This has also been a dawn bite lake for me. All of my best days out there have been early (before 10am) and then alot of time the bite will really slow. Good Luck!

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
