Budd Lake Fishing Update

We fished the South end of Budd Lake on (1-2).  The fishing action was very slow, but we did find lots of small perch and a few pike.  We were looking for walleye in 8 to 17 FOW along the break, but got skunked. 

The weather was cold and windy, so not many guys were out fishing.  We did get a visit from the DNR and the officer told us that he had checked several lakes in the area and did see many fish.  I had a nice talk with the officer and he told me that he has seen some big walleyes taken out of the lake in the last two years, which is why we always spend a few days ice fishing Budd. 

New to the Budd Lake boat launch is a sign with a lake map and depth contour.  The map is really nice, quite accurate and adds a nice touch. 

Good Luck..
