Was thinking the same thing. Would love a little panfish competition. Never fished lake Fenton. What species is there to target?

They pay out cash for places 1-6.  There will also be a tagged Northern pike that if caught will get you $ 10,000 !!!  Pike, walleye, perch,crappie and Big gills !

You can register at the moose the day of between 6 and 7:45. following that will be a rules meeting. fishing starts at 8 ends at 5 with activities at 5:30 at moose lodge. HOWEVER.... there is a new DNR officer in the area that wants a permit to be pulled for a tournament. same guy is aldo trying to shutdown lobdell lake chili cook off.
as for the ice... i went out on mon and had 8 - 10" . now there is open water on NE end and jyst SW of the moose lodge which will pose a problem getting to the moose from the ice.
100 yrds from open water had a good 8". today in same spot had 7.5".
will be checking ice on thurs and fri and reporting it to Dave at the moose. fisherman may be able to access moose lodge launch if we stay on the east shorline. if we have to cut across lake from the west a good spot would be just north of Case island. definetly do not try and fish north end pass the moose and sailing club..
will update this post when i get more info.
fingers crossed - Joe

Well as for the tournament permits they are available on line for anyone having a tournament in the state ... It's not like its a secret or anything  So the moose doesn't have a permit I take it?

Anyone have an up to date ice report? Never been on this lake in my life.  Any areas I should stay away from
