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.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.
