Whaletail

5 posts in this topic

Anyone been out to Whaletail? I was thinking of heading out there but am not sure of the ice conditions or the fishing report. I don't have a wheeler or snowmobile and am not certain if the ice is thick enough to consider driving my jeep. Ideally I'd like to hit the deep side of the lake. Thanks for any help.

I was out there Saturday the 29th. I had my wheeler and found at least ten inches of ice everywhere. There was one truck out there where the ice was thicker.

Between 3 guys we caught about 40 panfish, but not a single one that was keeper size. We were on the ice for about 5 hours.

Thanks for the info. Did you fish on the deeper side of the lake? Do you know if the boat landing the only access to get to that end?

Thanks again!

No, we only fished the shallow side of the lake. Word was that there was no action on the other side.

Yes, the boat access is the only way to the other end.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
