Went out last Friday night. First time on the lake. 5 small crappies in 26 FOW. I've got more faith in that lake than just 5 small ones (5" to 7"). Going again tommorrow night I'll let you know how I do. Hopefully slush has froze some, pulling was a pain.

Yes out from the landing on the south side by the church. Anywhere from 16 to 26 FOW we found fish. A lot more suspended up 4 ft off bottom on the deeper side. These were the more active fish but still finicky and small. I might try Little Stanchfield on my next outing.

Ice conditions still the same 4" good ice with lots of water and slush. I thought it would have improvedsome over the last few days, guess not. I think it's going to take a while. In the mean time we'll just have to catch some fish to make up for it. smile.gif

Are there any pike in this lake?

I live close and was thinking of spearing here.

Any advice?

Or is there a better lake to spear?

I saw a couple of spear houses out there, but i could'nt tell how they do. A lot of the lake on the west side is reed filled and shallow with a few deeper holes near by. I think it would be worth a shot.

      I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore.

      I would also suggest small sucker, I also had good luck with just a crappie minnow on the hook. Depends on the lake really.

      White jig heads with a white tube, if that's not working use a buzz bomb with a sucker head or tail on the treble

      Ok, That's a good update.  I didn't realize all the fish died and I'll probably try and change the lake.  Thanks guys!
