Lake: Jones Lake

Dates: 5/31-6/4/2023

Group Name: Bowman

Guest Comments:  Despite the heat, we had really great fishing.  We were surprised we could catch walleye in the middle of the day in the sun and heat.  Great smallmouth action all around  and especially at the falls.  It was fun drifting leeches for walleye.  Pike hit everything.  Fun top water action for smallies.  Great accommodations and we hope to come back again sometime in the future.  Our group made homemade lures that was really fun to make and to fish with.  A lot of us had good action on our homemade lures.

Lake: Trout Lake

Dates: 5/26-6/1/2023

Group Name: Bixler

Guest Comments: Bass were starting to bed really good.  Some bay bass had bloody tails. Rock piles and and tubes

Lake Trout were good trolling w/ deep diving cranks from #22 to #23 point on map. 

Walleye were very good when we targeted them. Hard to catch eaters, most were 20' and over.  Largest was 27".  Big walleye caught at the start of #16. 

3rd time on lake, fishing has always been good, but this was the best year.  Gets better every year as we learn more about the lake.

The new cabin was fantastic. Could not ask for any better, very well thought out.  It was perfect. Great improvement.  We will be back in 2025!

Lake: Fishtrap Lake

Dates: 5/25-5/31/2023

Group Name: Patton

Guest Comments: Fishing - SMB was excellent all along shorelines.  Northerns were excellent - only a  few over 28".  Walleye scarce but good on Upper Highrock.  Caught a 27,28, and 29" on Fishtrap and some eaters as well.  Bought way too many leeches.

Accommodations were good. Motor on Highrock Lake needs carburetor adjustment at high speed.  One seat in boat was in bad shape. 

Wildlife - one bear sighting across the lake - no moose
