Sure, it's a 280 acre lake that doesn't have crappies. I'm here for one more day!

Just when you think you've got them pegged, maybe the DNR is right, couldn't find the biggns on day 2. Must have caught the only 10 crappies in the lake. Can't wait until next time!

Heading up next weekend, havent fished the area too much, I would appreciate any help finding the crappies. Also im just getting into trout fishing,do you use the same spoons as in summer and how high off the bottom should I jig them?

Talk to the baitshops.We do most of our bait business at Fred's Bait just outside Deer River.They say Itasca Co has 1000 lakes so there are a lot of choices.I know there's 1 in GR right on highway 2 called Ben's Bait that been around a long time & should be able to help.Up by us Bowstring Lake gets quite a bit of hardwater slab action.I personally haven't fished it.

Lots of folks fish Splithand for crappies ... but there's a fair share of walleyes, pike and perch in there, too. There's a resort on Splithand that maintains plowed roads, although this year we don't have enough snow to warrant plowing. Most folks fish crappies on the same side of the lake as the resort ... you'll know the spot by all the houses and activity in that area. Splithand has some special regs for crappies (smaller limit) and walleyes (slot). The fish you would catch there would likely be quality.

Regarding trout ... they can be found anywhere in the water column from the bottom to right below the ice. Most folks start at the bottom and watch their depth finder. Jig at the bottom for a while, then slowly work your way up the water column to just below the ice. If you see something appear on your depthfinder, go for it.

hope this helps ... and good luck.

Check out the thread in the Duluth/BWCA forum about inland laker gear. Read up on a few pages and you'll learn anything you need to know about ice fishing for lake trout.

The MNDNR Lakefinder can be helpful too.

That site has helped me find my favorite lakes but its also made me overlook many. My best crappie lake netted worse than many so so lakes.
