I'd try in the middle of the biggest group of houses you can find, if it were me, jk I don't fish that lake, but there should be a post or two a page back or so that might give you some starting ideas, good luck and welcome

One could go out from Westwood landing to the left and fish towards the narrows or Squirrels nest point. Or, you could go around the point to the left and fish in the center part of the Bakers bay area anywhere from 10-30fow.

Around the Squirrels nest point or near the narrows in the flat basin area, fish anywhere from 8-13 fow and move around to locate the fish.

On the other side of the lake one could go out from the north access and go to the third point or second point area. One could also checl out the area straight out from the North landing and you will see where they have been fishing by the piles of ice from drilling their holes.

Just keep moving around and one should find some panfish.

I believe it is noon to 2. It is usually run out of Westwood, but I've never fished it. Correct me if I'm wrong.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
