thought about venturing out on west battle this weekend.. not familiar with lake at all, wondering about some prefered depths on walleye fishing (flats, breaks?)... does someone prefer one side of the lake over the other?

There are a few big islands out there! if you can find those and fish deeper than you think its a very clear lake. If you can find the edge of a brake give her a try.

There are alot of humps and holes on this lake. I fish it at least twice a year,mostly in summer.A freind of mines aunt used to have a resort on the West side near the public acess. Ive been comeing up there about 17yrs. Did a few ice fish trips also.Its a lake that Ive never been skunked on. Are the Crappies on the bite on the West side. What is the ice thicknes on the west side around near the wall. Thinking of possible trip.

Going to try my luck out there tonight. Any spots where I could land some eyes or slabs? I can see a lot of humps and walls out there, but just don't know where to set up at. Going to bring the portable out. I was wondering about the Snow conditions out there. Will I be able to get out there with the 4-WD? I hope so. I need to land something tonight. Thanks.

What works best out there for bait? I know some crappies do like fatheads. What about the walleyes? Shinners or what?

Thanks again.

If you go out there you will kind of see where to go, if you go out by the shoreline cafe accses go to the right and follow the plowed road and you will come to a spot were there are fish houses they are fishing for crappies, I was in 29 feet of water and catching fish at 3 arm lenths and one foot and you want to go as light as possable, but the fishing has really died of last weekend I just mangaed 1 keeper for the weekend.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.

      @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!

      I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..

      Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.

      I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries.   I'm thinking I should be in better shape.  But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.

      Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went.  With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.

      Teach them up in the way they should go. And they will never part from it! Great video!   Mom probably loved the day off too!
