Pretty good lake
Avatar of RPSEYS

From my point of view, this lake is actually really really good. The fishing is incredible, in the past 5 trips I’ve gone there, I’ve caught maybe 15 4-5 pound largemouth. I caught my Pb largemouth there as well, only problem I have is that majority of the piers are private. Down the trail you’ll find maybe 20 boats all shuffled together, and it’s private. No fishing except from the boat owners. I find that disturbing. Anyway, other than that, an amazing lake to boat on, swim in, and fish at.

Great spot
Avatar of TheWildOutDoors

To start off the Mississippi River in general is a great spot to fish there is lots of rocks in some spots and lots of cover and great currents for all kinds of fish! If you love a challenge and want to catch some northern pike and great fighting fish like small mouth and carp!
