Was on Clear by Forest Lake today for a couple hours before my flasher battery went dead. Does anyone know much about this lake. Talking to people out there today it was pretty dead. Thanks

You'll know when the bite is on, the parking lot will be full. I don't know how fish survive out there, but there is some walleye action to be had at times. like I said, when the lot is full....... On that note, work the bottom edge of any steep drop off. The walleyes focus on classic structure out there as the carp keep pretty much any weeds from forming.

I noticed there was about 8-10 portables out there Sunday night. There are a few of us going tonight after work so I will give a report tomorrow.

Thanks, I was'nt being smart, I just know that there are some spots that are tough for some to give up. Its close to home so I"ll give it a try. The guy's I talked to on Sunday said the crappies bite starts at 6pm. Maybe tonight. Good fishing to all.

I have never fished it but I know what you mean on the secret spot thing. I'll let you know tomorrow or maybe tonight if I have time.

There is 1 main spot. It's no secret. Look out across from the access to the left. It's a sunkin island of sorts. It's good early in the year and then fades. It' also a long walk. There are other less populaar spots but they produce more later in the year.

It's no secret lake that is for sure.. This lake has been in the news paper many times because it such a good lake to fish at.... Plus,thousands of people drive by it every day.. Not to mention all of the ice fishing contests on this lake.

Anyways, this is a great lake to ice fish at... Limits of walleyes are not uncommon on a daily basis .... Most people on this lake target walleyes or/and crappies.

If you want to know the spots, my advice, just follow the crowds... This is one lake NOT to fish away from the crowds.

Well my brother and friend got there before me and my brother got 3 small walleyes and that was it for the night. Probably 5 inches of ice where we were at which was 14.7 ft.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
