I'd start by trolling fast and shallow on the windy side of the lake for walleyes.

As for the carp, they were thick last weekend on the north side in the long beach area of the lake cruising the shallow sand up by the bank.

we fished for 5 hours on saturday; it was tough keeping live bait away from bass and perch. fished many different areas from priest point and then moving east....got three eyes on slip bobbers. 13-16" fish. tossed em all back. when pulling cranks all we hooked were small slough sharks. the northerns were hitting really hard though which was fun. all in all a beautiful day on the lake, and for as calm as it was i couldnt believe there wasnt much recreational traffic, even in traditional "boating areas".

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
