I was out there a couple weeks ago and there was a good foot of ice, there were plenty of cars out there.

We parked at Waterworks and walked out to the group of houses off to the left. There was a nice break there where is dropped from 5' out to about 16' and everyone was set up there.

We had 4 tips ups with suckers set at various depths, but got no flags. The guys next to us had tips ups out in 14-16' with smelt and got a 10lb northen and lost a bigger one at the hole.

jwhjr, if you check the board before you get out, check with JD - Josh fishes Centerville & she said they've had better luck in the little pond behind her house. She's home so I'm sure she'd let you wander back there!

Max - I got some advice from Josh over the weekend. We hit the lake from about 9:30 - 1:30 today and managed 5 crappies from 8-10" and a couple of small perch. 1 was caught on an Angel Eye spoon with a fathead, 3 on a small silver Swedish Pimple with a crappie minnow, and 1 on a orange ratso with a crappie minnow. We had no luck with wax worms or eurolarvae. There was a decent amount of activity on the lake with numerous vehicles driving around. There was 19" of ice in the spot we were, and the ice was making plenty of noise with all of the vehicle travel. My 10yr old daughter wanted to go ice fishing for her birthday, so it was a fun time to spend with her.

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
