Thanks for the reply. This year we are going to try to catch some. Not just watch the crazies.

Lubey, catching them by "accident" is actually the way you fish for them. But yeah, keeping your bait on the bottom increases your chances.

I also heard that the more beer you drink the better they bite...always worked for me.

I have heard from various people and resources that they are a sucker for lighted or glow in the dark lures...as far as bait though I don't believe they are picky. I've caught them on crappie minnows, shiners, rainbow chubs, etc.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
