Anyone ever fished/camped around Cross island (upper French river) and willing to share advice? I'm heading up in the end of May

Deep water right by Cross, have pulled a few pickereyes out of there.
Cross island is supposed to be haunted due to 12 missionaries getting
butchered there long ago. Natives avoid it like the plague.

Anytime, let me know if you camp on the island - interested to see what happens.
As far as gear goes a simple split shot and minnow on bottom always works and bottom bouncers with worm harnesses are my go to on the French - just be prepared for frequent snags.
