WhaleTail

7 posts in this topic

I noticed a number of perms and portables on WhaleTail today -- any information on this lake -- looked to be about 15 houses in the same area.

I fished that lake last summer......for the size of that lake, we pulled out some HUGE Bucket Mouths! I would also be interested to hear what else might be getting caught out there.

Whaletail is loaded with small crappies and the occasional monster crappie. You can expect 20 of the 4 to 6 inch variety versus 1 over 10 but 3lb crappies have been caught on Whaletail. Have also caught a few of the green carp through the ice.

Don't forget about the slimers! I always set up deep for the craps and work the shallow area for norts. It's never a blockbuster day, but you do always have a shot at a trophy, for all species.

I cant believe how hard this lake is getting hit this year, there is usually never anyone out on the big body of the lake, just a small group in the "tail" most years. Its becoming a little city out there catching tiny sunnies and craps, this little lake cant take much pressure as it is so please practice selective harvest, no need to keep any of the bigger fish, there are tons and tons of small fish, eat them, take pictures and release any bigger fish to help the future of this lake.

Good action for kids I guess, a chance at 1 big crappie if you are lucky and happen to find 1, but definatly not a good lake to go out for a meal.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
