It's been just over 2 weeks since I was on 16 but we did pretty well, steady action all day, some nice sized saugers, some perch mixed in, and walleyes right up to the slot but nothing in the slot on that trip. Jigging spoons and shiners under a deadstick. I was pretty satisfied with our catch. Going back in 2 weeks, hopefully you guys will have some good info to report when you get back.

We were up on 16 Sat 3/1 and Sun 3/2 (a.m.). To sum it up Saturday - Slow, Sunday - Slower in 27.5 feet. Friday 2/29 was a better day at Arnesen's Reef but no size and majority was perch with some eyes and saugers. Fish at 16 were bigger but fewer to be found and the weather Sunday didn't help matters.

I left the lake from 16 mile on Monday morning. The Road was blown shut out by 16 mile. We able able to get two wheeled houses off by driving on the east side of the road for 1 1/2 mile, then the road was OK to drive on. We were off the lake by 10:00 am. Looked the plows were just about to head out onto the lake when we were leaving. FIshing was slow Saturday and Sunday.

Moneyback2,

We were out to 16 mile on sat and then on sun, When we were leaving on sun around 4:30 pm we got the sub. stuck about 100 yrds. from the road. Were u guys the ones with the black lodge sleeper, and the white p/u that was stuck? Thank god for the driver from arenson's to give a hand. We only got 6 walleye,s & 6 sauger, the walleye were good size, 2-18, 2-17, 2-16, some 14" sauger, a lot of small (8")sauger. When we left the main road back was 3/4 drifted shut.

No, we were in 2 blue Fords with Crew cabs. Tough going out there. We were just glad to get off the lake on Monday morning.

      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

      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

      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.

      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
