This year, 44 adults and 15 kids participated in the 2023 fishing contest. Sadly, no crappies were caught, but lucky fishermen caught three walleyes...14", 13", and 8". Wow! Jim Luttrell has mentioned at the annual meetings that the DNR stocks our lakes every three years with walleye fingerlings. He said that our lakes are classified as "not suited for walleye reproduction" making it crucial to notify the DNR that we are catching them.
Last year we started officially collecting walleye data. We ask that when you catch a walleye, CLICK HERE to help us collect/forward the info to the DNR. We will also try to keep an updated "walleye count" for our own benefit.
The 2023 IMLPOA Boat Parade was a HUGE success. It was the highest-ever participation with 17 pontoon boats, 2 runabouts, and one large tube. The weather was glorious and enthusiastic boaters tooted horns, clapped, and yelled to those watching from shore. Thanks to all who came out and helped us celebrate!

Annual IMLPOA Picnic & Meeting
Our annual meeting was held on
Saturday, July 15, 2023. at Levi’s Field on Walworth Road.
It gave us a chance to with our neighbors around the lakes.
Dan Brennan, president of the Ruth Lake LID (lake improvement district), will spoke to us about invasive species and what the Ruth Lake Association does to address this issue.

Many dishes were shared!

Island Mud Lake Property Owners Association Ice Cream Pontoon Social
We celebrated summer with an IMLPOA-sponsored ice cream social on Saturday, August 12th. A HUGE thank you to all the visitors who got free treats and supported this new event. People came by boat, pontoon, paddleboard, kayak, and canoe to The Ice Cream Pontoon, anchored from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm near the sandbar on Island Lake! All in all, IMLPOA handed out over 75 treats with chocolate-covered ice cream being the clear favorite. We ran out of everything but popsicles. Fingers crossed that this will become an annual event.
