YEAH, SEE YOU AND THE OTHER 2000 PEOPLE IN THE MORNING. HEARD A FEW YEARS AGO, A LADY DROPPED HER LINE DOWN WITH THE LEAD DEPTH BOMB AND REELED UP A 16" CRAPPIE.

Can you use gas augers on this lake?

I've never ice fished it before and haven't had a line in it since I was a kid. I probably won't go out on the opener but it sounds like a fund place to try during ice season.

Well don't I feel dumb today!!!

Please learn from my mistake and READ THE RULE BOOKS!

Got a ticket today for fishing out of season.

I don't blame the officer at all and am not mad at him, I should have read the book.

He was pretty cool though I also didn't know about only using one line but he just warned me about that.

Did manage to get 1 13" rainbow.

Please people if you haven't read through the rulebook please do so.

I've fished there a few times during the open water and I was thinking about getting over there soon to try it on the ice. I've heard some conflicting things though and I know this lake has some special regulations, like the no boat/canoe thing.

What I heard was you are not allowed to use a gas auger or a portable shack. Is this true? I'm already aware of the regular trout lake regulations from the handbook (like 1 line, no minnows, etc) but I'm wondering if there are any other special regulations for this lake that apply to ice fishing.

Gas augers and shacks are allowed. Everybody and their mom had one on opener. I brought mine, but didnt bother setting it up cause it was actually pretty nice out on Saturday. But yup, the usual no-no's: one line, no live bait.

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!

      I'm debating whether to bring my small fishing boat on a camping trip with the inlaws last weekend iinJuly. Is it worth it fishing this time of year. We are staying in the Whipolt bay. If I do fish it may be after dark when kids are sleeping. Would be open to catching both walleyes and/or panfish. Send me advice please as I have fished the lake only once.

      Cliff, Why do you use a 1/2 crawler and not a whole one? I usually use a whole crawler on my Lindy. I caught this nice 27" tonight on a red #2 with a green soft bead and a big fat whole crawler.
