i have been catching walleyes on potato in 18 to 24 feet on north end humps with crawlers on a 16th oz. jig. redtails have been working as well. don't know about little mantrap but i would assume that you could pile up bass and crappies if you wanted to put in some time. As far as muskies go this week i anticipate will be very busy on Mantrap, still worth some time in my opinion but i might try to get out there after dark. Jonah

Just spent the labor day weekend fishing potato, fish hook, and little man trap, fishing was horrible. We didnt get any walleyes, or largemouth believe it or not, we fished everything, deep, weedlines, humps, with red tails, and worms. Talked to many people and had the same reports as well. Good luck.

My father did pretty well all weekend on fish hook for walleyes with crawlers. He had at least 3 walleyes each day as well as a number of bass. He did say he really had to work for them, fish were caught in 19 fow. Jonah

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
