What kind of fish does that lake produce? I heard it was decent for northerns, but are there any pannies or walleyes worth going after?

I fished the lake a few times this summer and I mostly caught sunnies and bass. The sunnies are mostly smaller but I have gotten some real nice ones out of there. The bass is what I mainly go there for. I have also been wondering how the ice is because I am hoping on heading out there soon.

Not much of a walleye lake. Decent panfish with lots of sorting. On tip ups you'll catch a mixed bag of bass and pike with both running pretty decent. When I first fished this lake I'd take my kids there and we set up on the the break fishing panfish with tip ups up shallow. Lots of action!

Still a good action lake.

I checked Beaver today, about 3 inches of clear ice and 3-4 inches of bad ice(slush frozen). There was somebody with a 4 wheeler out there. Crazy if you ask me.

There is slush on almost all of the lakes in various spots. You just cant get away from that when the snow to ice ratio is what it is. might be froze up this weekend though. The temps sure dropped last night.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
