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.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs

      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.

      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.
