Find the food! Fish in this time of year are searching for food

they can range from as shallow as 7 FOW and as deep as 60 FOW. Drill some holes down a break and find those clouds of bait fish with a camera or vexlar.

Ive been catching perch on Ottertail in 45 feet. The bite is very sporadic at least where my house is. Seems to be best in the morning for perch and walleye.....at least thats my experience out there for the last couple of weeks.

Good Luck

      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?
