As far as I know theres not much for tulibee fishing in the area. I usually target whitefish when I'm looking for something to smoke. The south bay on Crosslake and Lower Hay seem to be the best places I've found for those.

Pelican lake. Usually get some nice ones up to 2#. Its kind of hit and miss. There out in the deeper holes suspended, you need vexilar. But always have a small pimple rig set up with crappie minnow head. They use to come thru like clock work at 830am. Could get a dozen if you hit it right. Great sport on lite tackle, their fighters. Occassionally nailed a whitefish, wow do they fight.

I caught one on round tonight, was the first one i had ever seen, had to ask the guys in the shack next to me what it was. Do you just smoke them or are they good to fillet up and eat? It was a great fighter, fun to catch!

They are awesome fighters especially on ul stuff. thats why i love catching them!! the best way to prepare them is to smoke them however i have grilled them and sprinked brown sugar on them while on the grill and they were pretty tasty that way as well!! Were you fishing in front of the Ojibwa access??

I catch the whitefish in about 10-14ft. in weedy areas. I just use a small jigging spoon with a minnow head. Its neat on Cross with the clear water because they cruise the tops of the weeds and you can watch them come in and hit. They ussually come in anywhere from 4-8ft. off the bottom.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
