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.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
