Between Areneson's and Ballard's between Jan 11-13th....we dont care about the nightlife we care about the fishing....where will we more likely to have better luck? the mud flats or the structure off areneson's?

I'd pick structure. (bottom structure... lol...)

That's my opinion.

when you say between arnesons & ballards, do you mean a location between the two areas or do you mean pick one or the other?

Mid Jan, twin islands comes to mind.

Well, if you figure that out, let me know. smile.gif

It's fishin man, we can all only speculate but to me that seems a little early for hitting "off shore structure" as in reefs.... but, it's fishin.

guess I'd still want to say twin islands (east side) if I was going to try to make a logical guess.

Early for reefs? Never too early, unless you break through.

Arnesen's....there you will have the choice of fishing a reef,reef edge, or deeper flat all within a short distance, and can move between them to find some active fish without spending a lot of time travelling from one to the other.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
