Not fished much in winter. There are a couple of houses on north end of lake. Know some people that live on lake , they say there are a few big wallys floating around and some crappies if you can find them. Check the DNR lake finder website for survey reports, might help.

A buddy of mine has a cabin there. Fished last memorial day had really good luck for bass and northerns if that is what your going after. There is alot of structure around check lakefinder and kinda pick and choose. Havn't heard anything about ice.

Thurs-Sat 17th-19th of January.

Fished 8 guys. 10-35 FOW. We Caught approximately 20 Northerns and 35 Walters. This Walter was broken off on Friday A.M. by a guy in our group in 22 FOW. I caught him again Friday Evening in 32 FOW. He still had the other guys Pink Swedish Pimple in his mouth. When I got him up, I found the lure and wondered if I was in my own shack or if someone switched the lure on me as a joke!

Had a great time but was below zero the whole time, if you guys go up-DRESS WARM!

      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.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
