This lake covers 64 acres, averages 15 feet deep, and has a maximum depth of 22 feet. Its shoreline is heavily developed with cottages. Key species: Tiger muskie, largemouth bass, chain pickerel, bluegill, black crappie, yellow perch, and bullhead. The lake is stocked annually with a couple hundred 10-inch norlunge. “They do pretty well,” says Robins, “growing to an average of 8 pounds, with a few reaching 30-something pounds.” Locals target them with large minnows and bucktail spinners. Largemouth bass ranging from 12 to 20 inches are plentiful. They hang out in weed beds and around docks and strike jigs tipped with soft plastics and pork. Pickerel up to 25 inches are so plentiful, many consider them a nuisance. They’ll hit just about any lure but are particularly attracted to spinners and curly-tailed grubs bounced on bottom and swum steadily through the water column.
