Hey Bill,

i'll be fishing it with my brother. come on down, its a good tournament. the lake is right in worthington, its a prairie pothole lake with a mud bottom, there are a few holes that were dredged years ago that are about 12 ft deep, the rest of the lake is about 6-7ft deep. Just throw on a #5 shad rap and start trolling or long line #9 or #11 floaters. The DNR stocks the lake pretty much every year and this year we have been catching 16-20" eyes for the most part. Last year there were some nice fish caught during the tourney. Give me a call.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
