Spy Pond is full of fish and has been regularly stocked with tiger muskie fingerlings for more than a decade. In 1996, the largest tiger muskie in the state was caught here and weighted in at 15 lbs. Steel leaders are recommended for anglers who want to target one of these rare trophies. Largemouth bass in particular are numerous and generally above average in size. Yellow and white perch are abundant and can provide fast jigging action for ice fishermen. Try off the south and west sides of the island. In spring and summer, don’t forget the carp. Chum with some corn or bread crusts and be prepared for fast initial runs and long battles. In addition to the species already listed, the pond also has brown bullhead, pumpkinseed, bluegill, golden shiner, alewife, American eel and goldfish as regular residents.
