Don't know about the recent bite, but was out there last winter and the size is definitely on the small size. We did manage 3 keepers about 14" long out of the 12-15 we caught back then, (if I remember right) grin.gif

They are biting very well, but yoiu can fit your limit of six easily into a 5 quart ice cream pail. Majority are 8-11 inches long. Great place to bring kids. Fathead under a bobber does the trick. Once in a while you hear of someone getting a 18 inch hold over but not often. Guys from all over the country, telling everyone "they got their limit". Usually saying they were "good eating size". Have heard from people that they are soft when they clean them. But it is a hot bite right now.

I went by yesterday morning and there were 4 or 5 boats on the lake. I thought maybe they were pan fishing becuz they were all using bobbers. But after reading the other post they must have been after walters. Are there other fish in the lake like sunnies,bass, northerns?

No, from what my fathers friend(retired game warden) says, it was a walleye rearing pond, and they were having problems with larger fish eating all of the small ones, so they opened up to fishing a couple of years ago.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
