I found the Jumbos and I didnt have to holehop. Best jumbo fishing I ever had. No bull! You just got to put your time in and every so often, get lucky. Me, I am sticking to Millacs. Best water in the state!

son of a.....I was a week early. We did the same thing, bounced around between the mud and the rock on Feb 1 and got nothing. Glad to see there are some fish in that big lake.

Harvey- were you guys closer to shore or more out on the gravel and mud? I tried the rock to gravel/sand transitions earlier this year and did not have the best of luck. Not looking to get your spots, but would like to know what bottom types/FOW you guys were finding success. THanks

My friend has been getting walleyes every trip to his wheelhouse the last month. Almost all between 23-28". This last trip up last thursday through sunday the jumbos showed up as well as a couple eater walleyes. He is on neither rock nor mud nor gravel.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
