goguac lake in battle creek
« on: Dec 16, 2010, 11:13 AM »
has anyone been on goguac lake yet this season? or is does it even have fish able ice yet? im wanting to go out this Saturday, but not sure what lake i want to try. i fished waubascon last weekend but it gets way over fished quick, so im not really wanting to go there.

When I drove by a week ago, Goguac looked like it only had skim ice on top.  It can be tricky near the access, had a friend go in there about two years ago.  Be safe

Drove by and didn't see anyone, it freezes late and funny. Some guys were out in the middle of Graham though

http://www.dnr.state.mi.us/SPATIALDATALIBRARY/PDF_MAPS/INLAND_LAKE_MAPS/CALHOUN/GRAHAM_LAKE.PDF Not one of my favorites but isn't really bad. Saw the guys out from shore, not shallow.

Was near Lee yesterday and it didn't look safe. Fairly deep(ish), clear lake, one of the last to get safe. Saw someone on Goguac near the island and hour ago

Don't know, understanding has been the only legal place to get on is the access unless you have permission from a landowner. People are on Beadle as well
