Going out Thursday nite in the Kayak. Hope to boat a Wiper and some Walleye.
I'm thinking the East end near the dam would be best. Will launch from the shore so don't have to worry about the boat ramp times
Ideas? anyone want to try a canoe in the dark?

Willow Springs pond

talked to the DOW workers today they were pulling there electro shocker boat out of the bigger pond.
They counted one Crappie, small blue gills, some decent bass and catfish and drum roll, a couple of large Wiper.
Our somewhat pet Snapper was found dead.

You want clear water for night fishing-always worked better for me.

So the lower lake should be better.

Congrats on the kayak, love mine.

Good luck out there! I have a question about this "big pond-little pond" talk. Is it just the two portions of the lake, like by the dam is "big pond"?

I should have taken the advice. I hit the SE area, fought the wind that was supposed to drive the bait into the area and make the Wipers happy.
I did drop a bait casting rig in 11.6 fow of 74' water. It has a Berkley Frenzy tied on.
Fished from 7:45PM until 10PM without a bite. Did mark fish.

Was this just a snapper that'd been living there for a while? That sucks did you catch him in net
