A challenging lake
I dont know if its the lack of cover, the depleted O2 content, the perch population, I must say , I have never caught a limit on Ronk. Back in 1997-1999, I went to Ronk about 3 times in the summer, and the most Id catch is 3 fish per outing, all keepers with the occasional 3 lb +. Never caught a smallie there. And all of my fish would come out off the Inn. A t-rigged 6 inch watermelon worm did the trick for me.
Before Chris and I went there with yar last week, I went there late summer and caught 2 keepers off the submerged rowboat on a jig pig.
The biggest Ronk fish I caught was a 4 lb LM caught early in the year 1999, on spinnerbait.
Looks like Paul R knows the honey holes on Ronk. Like all lakes, one must do their homework to catch fish, and Paul has done so. Pretty fish and pic, Bill.
