Default 4/27 Maple Lake report.

I hit Maple Lake at Meachum Grove this morning for several hrs.
Steady light rain, and temps about 50 with light winds. Very enjoyable day.
I had the lake to myself (big surprise). Ended up with two bass for the day.
Lots of work for the outcome, but it was Maple Lake.
Both hit on xraps close to shore. I tried jigs out deep and shallow, some spinners, a blade bait out deep, and a rattle trap. the xrap was the only producer for the day.
No pics today. None were worth taking the camera out in the rain for. One at 15 in and one dink at about 10 in.
Tomorrow will be better??????? Sounds like the Cubbies

I was at Maple Lake yesterday as well, from about 4pm to 5:30 pm, was just checking it out and seeing how it was looking, no bites no fish. Sure to be going here again once the weather really starts warming up. I used to come here with my buddy on ditch days from school. Is it true they went off with the rowboat rentals?

Hey sammo
Im not sure we were at the same Maple Lake. I was at the one in Meachum Grove (Bloomindale).
I think you were further south. I know there are a couple Maple Lakes though.
No boats at this one, but fishing was tough all over that day I see.

I was at Maple off of 95th a couple of weeks ago and there were three or four rental boats on the water. It was a bit windy that day. I felt sorry for the kids out there rowing without a trolling motor.
