I haven't been up that way but talked to a friend of mine that did get a few crappies in 30 fow.

I believe there are new regs. on the lake.( 5 crappies and 10 sunfish)

I am not positive on this, you mite want to check it out for sure.

thanks bob, sounds like the weather might be half way decent this weekend ,hopefully we can get something going.thanks for the heads up on the new regs, we would'nt keep more then a couple fish, but good to know. it will just be nice catching quality fish, instead of the numbers you get down here. thanks again bob, take care

p.s. how's travel on the area lakes?

thanks guys for the report on the regs and the snow they were both to be very true, just got back on monday fished really hard drilled probaly 200 holes looking for them dang sunfish, no luck! we did end up finding some jumbo perch on Itasca 15 inch pigs, did'nt keep any either, I could of probaly caught my limit but I had sunfish on the brain. I decided to try another lake in the area and ended up catching about 40 nice crappies 38 fow 5 off the bottem, these fish were so agrressive they would come up 3 feet as it was falling on the drop, It was a fun night kept 5 11-12 inchers. And as for the weather all I can say is AMAZING.

Probaly gonna plan a trip for March gonna the gills another shot.

If you guys want to email me any info on travel conditions on the lake or any ideas on where there them suckers are my email is justindreher@aol.com, thanks again guys, justin.

Hey just wondering about a few lakes down that way as I grew up just a little north of alice but shoot me an email essig 149 at hotmail dot com. I can probably give you a few lakes I know of for some gills also.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
