So whats working now? What should i look for if im chasing smallies? Are the LM deep or shallow?

LM should be going on the weed edges with standard worm rigs, or senkos. Early morning is good for spinners, top water and shallow cranks. Any of the weed edges or cattails should be a good starting point.

My dad had a cabin there for over 30 years, some real hog bass caught and released over the years. Kept one that was just short of 6#, mounted. I've caught some nice LM during the winter on light crappie, sunnie rigs, what a hoot.

I've had some of my best luck on smallies on the south end near the narrows on the rocks. They seem to go deeper than the LM. Good luck and hang on. Bill

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
