We have had pretty good luck with the bass and pike in the 371 bay. Toss spinners in the cabage and you will catch them. 5 to 8 ft seem to be best for us. Havent been eye fishing out there in a wile but hit the humps in the main lake in the morning and eve for your best luck.

Thanks for the info, we are on Merrifield bay and in the 4 years up there I have never went down to 371 bay but I am going to check it out this year. Especially since Ivens will deliver beer to the dock for you! grin.gif

The bass fishing has been pretty awesome. I had a group out this morning in this wind. I think we boated somewhere around 30-40 bass over about 2 1/2 hours. Pretty good considerring it was a first time casting lesson for two of the anglers. Small jigs and minnows is working great along the weed edges, 10-16 feet. I think Dave has been opening the store about 6:30 each morning. Good luck next week!

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
