Three Oaks recreation area lake in crystal lake

Postby HEDDONFROG » May Wed 02, 2018 5:40 pm

Hey, my son’s team just got a surprise invite to fish Three Oaks Recreation are in Crystal Lake and I think are fishing Vulcan lake. I cannot find any info anywhere other than Satellite images on this lake and just wondering if anyone has any experience fishing it. Just general depth ranges and such, if you were so kind as to recommend baits based on this weird ass spring we’re having, that would be great as well. Thanks guys

Thanks Busse and...Duh on me, I didn’t even think to look here on the board. I just read through it. Good to know it’s a quarry (like the Plainfield lake X) and has smallies.. It looks like three oaks is a lake that plays way more into his favorite techniques than Busse...drop shotting deep(er), football head jigs, neko’s and jerkbaits. He’s pumped

OoOoh that would have been fun. Yeah at least there is no cost for them to fish the tournament Saturday. At least to us parents. Idk if the schools get charged.

The Busse tournament ends at 3pm, I’d guess 3:30 would be a approximate time for the actual weigh-in to start but not 100%. If you or anyone else happens to be there let me know, let’s make acquaintances
