Decided to use some left over waxies and red worms to see what dinks Maple Lake would offer up. Fishing was slow, in about 2.5 hours I just landed 3 perch and 4 gills (missing about 5 or 6 other bites) I used a crappie rig type setup (bell weight with two hooks attached further up) and the fish seemed to be on the outside of the weedline (perhaps 15 yards out from the 95th St lot)

Saw a few anglers go to the point, try for less than 30 minutes and then leave. No idea what they were expecting/targeting.

Typical size perch

Sad to say, above average size gill. Usually they are around 5 inches.
