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.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
