Was there over the weekend, just fishing from a rental (me and a friend each brought our dads up, so we didn't want to mess w/ portables). Fishing was pretty slow, but we managed to catch enough for meals each night. A glow red forage minnow jig on a set-line w/ whole fat-head about 6" from bottom was the best producer, followed by just about any glow spoon for jigging (except the buck-shots, which seemed to scare more fish off than they caught). I'm sure the fishing would have been better off the roads, but with the temps and winds, I'm glad we were in a nice warm rental. As for fishing off the roads, you'll need sleds after the wind that was there over the weekend. On Sunday morning, it took 3 trucks plowing almost non-stop just to keep the road open enough to get on/off the lake. Hope this helps, and good luck up there!

Thanks for the reply. hope the fishing picks up a bit in the next 2 weeks which it should. If not we'll have to do some scouting. 14 of us coming up in portables spread out should be able to find some fish. Kind of my pre wedding fishing trip.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
