FISHING PACKAGE 2018
Opening – Oct 14, 2018 (2-night minimum) Bay Lake has attracted anglers to its waters since Ruttger’s opened in 1898. For good reason. Its waters are teeming with bass, pan fish, northern pike and walleye. Bay Lake has been described as “one of the smallest big lakes in the state.” That’s because its many bays and channels offer good structure for fish and plenty of spots to tuck away and enjoy the peace of time on the water.
