Last Sunday I watched a jeep drive right across the entire lake from Merrimac side over to Aleray on south side. Drove right across her. I also watched a vehicle drive right out from Okee launch out to the middle of the stump fields and setup camp on Friday afternoon.

I wouldn't condone this, just stating what I witnessed.

Ice was a solid 16" in Moon Valley out by the stumps.

I've seen a few reports that trucks have been driving on the ice so I'm assuming there is quite a bit of ice out there. I'm just curious if it is safe for atv travel on the north end of the lake (islands, okee, the grade, etc.). Appreciate the help!

Can anybody tell me if there is a night bite out on the lake? Or is it like Pete and Castle Rock where they just shut off at night? Walleyes or crappies?

Out for a short time today, got one 3" short and one 3" too long (12" & 23") on spoons with minnow heads. 23" walleye was fat, I'm sure full of eggs, so she will be making a lot of babies !

I've been doing well targeting muskys the past few years. You can find them in quit a few places but lots of time on the water and I've found places I consistently catch muskys on just about every outting now

There are a good number of muskies in this lake and the river. I have taken a couple low 30" fish while bass fishing over the years. I also know guys who get them occasionally trolling for eyes. I know a couple guys that target them specifically and they get some nice fish in the 40"+ range fishing the main lake and river. I don't fish musky at all however so couldn't say how the fishery here stacks up against the madison chain or some SE WI lakes.

I caught my first musky and only musky here last year. 36 in. Was fishing for big smallies with 5 in. fat lunker grub. So there here I suppose, but I don't think their targeted much.

Fish on, yeah, you can access the lake there(Elray?SP). Just West of that boat landing is a point that sticks out. I've ice fished it before and caught fish, but it's been years. To the East of the landing you got a little inlet with a nice break as well. That break runs right up to Turtle bay. I would think there would be no problems driving out to any of those spots. That being said...Not sure I'd be the first one doing it, without drilling holes. Another option would be parking near the ferry and checking it out there. I drove out by Paradise Island last Saturday just to BS with some guys. I saw trucks out to the main river channel out from the islands. Yet another option would be in Okee bay. I know they are driving out there. Good luck

Just a quick question. I have never fished this lake and I know it has a lot of flow and can have very dangerous Ice conditions. Was just wondering if it would be safe to access the lake out of the boat launch on lake drive just west of sunset bay or any outher spots that are fairly easy to access from foot.

you can pm me any spots to try also

Thanks in advance for any help
