I've never fished Bisset in summer, nor ever caught a single pickerel anywhere before going ice fishing there on no-license day a couple of years ago. Bisset is one of the lakes you can fish in winter. Spent about an hour and a half there on a cold day, and landed a 22 inch pickerel using a bit of raw grocery store chowder mix salmon as bait. Next day, caught a smaller one, about 15 inches. Nothing else. Went back last winter one day,took wife, nothing. Why is that? (lol). I was surprised how delicious they were-apparently they can taste weedy in summer? Not in winter obviously.
I walked from the park parking lot out out the pond and over to about 300 feet from the old rehab centre off Bisset Road. But warning -you need to walk well out into the pond from parking lot and well past the point if crossing the lake towards Bisset Don't stray too close to shore when you cross the lake -runouts there and ice stays thin well out from them. Guy living on the lake told me about that, after I had measured with the auger. You need to allow a good 500 feet from the point when crossing.,and check ice as you go.Lake had about 18 inches when I was there, but it thinned out to about 14 across the front of that point and probably much less the closer you go to shore there. Make a couple of cuts to make sure as you go.
