If you are looking for a resort click on Resort Locator above. If you are portable check the posts for the past few weeks. Zipple Bay, Long Point, Arnesons, Wheelers Point pine island. All are good spots and you should definitley catch some fish. good luck and hang on. Bill

It should be time well spent reading the different threads

pertaining to recent fishing. It will answer most of your

questions and give you information you would'nt have thought

to ask for.

When the weather settles down some fishing is pretty good and

it should just keep getting better. Are you staying at a

resort? or going it alone?

I might be at a resort. I don't know yet. Then again we might rent a sleeper. So I don't know. So what do I use for bait, and what type of jigs and colors? I can't wait.

If you are in a sleeper out of a resort or staying at a resort most times they supply the bait shiners and fatheads. If you are thinking about a weekend you might want to reserve now. Check out Fiskyknut's post on things to do on the big pond Fisky's post and this one Fisky's other post they will tell you all about lures, colors and sizes.

Thanks for all the info. We are going to go out of Reel guides or something reel. I don't think they know where to set up at though. I have heard that the past years some friends of mine went up there and tryed for three days and only caught 7 walleyes. So I kind of wanna key my options open. I should bring my portable just in case.

They will probably have you out on and around the 5mile reef area. Fishing has been decent out there. It is about the toughest time of the winter season these days.....the dregs of winter eh!

They haul you via track vehicle so you may wanna get ahold of them to see iffin they'll have room and let you haul a portsable out???

Last week I was out there and did okay 1 day and great the next.

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.

      Thanks slowpoke.  I just looked at them again and they're in really good shape actually, it's just that the back boards where the screws attach are weak and some of the screws don't stay in on a couple of them.   Does anyone know of somewhere in the metro (preferably south) that would repair them.  Would a Marine place like Dan's Southside or Valley Motor sports do something like that?

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!
