Doodaa,

Welcome to FM. We're glad to have you.

I wish I could give you a recent report. But, honestly, no on in my clan of fishing buddies has fished it for several years. My last time out there was 10+ years ago and it was dink panfish galore.

Like Ray said, I have not been out there in some time now, but at one point I was hitting this lake 2-3 times during winter ice. My ice fishing crew and I know this lake for the winter of 96 death march. We where out and it started snowing very hard. The fishing was great and kept us out longer than normal, but the walk to the launch was a disaster. One buddy had to leave portable out on lake and go back next day. I took like two hours to get to landing (1' ½’ of fresh powder in 7-8 hours of fishing). At first we could not find lauch in black/white out conditions (before GPS). We did not get home until day light break (after digging out cars and trucks at launch). Just getting home was another task. Its know as the death march grin.gif, one of those things you will never forget.

Hope you read it good, because I only leave info like that on for a short time. grin.gif

Find deeper water if things are not biting. Start shallow and work out into the depths.

Its a long walk, but if you do it right, its worth the walk.

I have not fished Bone in awhile now, because of my knowledge of other lakes in the area. We always talk about Bone and I help out anyone who wants to make the walk.

Good luck!

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
