On fish I was in anywhere between 4-7 feet of water. Right on the point in front of the launch, if you go tomorrow you will see my holes. We only had 3 flags all day, but one sure paid off.

Thinkin about headin out there later if i dont go to prior. Anyone ever catch any decent eyes out there? by the looks of the dnr website there's a few fatties swimmin around in there. I would guess they're out in the deep hole, but havent heard of any big ones at all

Does anyone know if there's a better spot for pannies than right out in front of the access in 6-8 feet? I've caught fair numbers of crappie out there, but not a whole lot, and they're on the small side.

i think you can prolly catch pannies anywhere on the lake in the 8-12 ft range and crappies out in the 20ft range but i havent gotten any size out of any pan fish in there

Went out for a couple hrs just for some entertainment. Was in about 15fow. Got a few little sunnies, a few crappies, and a 10inch walleye. Crappies were around 8 inches. Man were they aggressive they were ripping my bobber under fast.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?

      How much ice??????

      didnt need hair dryer,  it went back to normal on it's own. paint chipped also.  nice idea the flat tip, just not for me I guess.
