Give it 2 weeks.

You'll want almost all of the snow melted before they turn on.

Little story I thought I would share about Tullibees. Up until a few years back, we used to net Tullibees on the north end during the 2 weeks of deer season. On an average year, we would net anywhere from 300-500 tullibees sometimes up near 8-900! My Dad and his buddies really enjoyed it but after a couple of his buddies passed away, they stopped doing it because lack of help. Now, we spend the majority of the time in the woods chasing deer. Someday I would like to get back into it though as they are so tasty in the smoker!!

JuddH, some of my dads friends also did that back in the 80's on the North end of the lake. Who are you??? The Trails End area???

Out in those 25-4- foot hole the tullies come through around 12-17 fow.

I use a small brown hair jig or maribou and when I see them on the flasher I lift it up to and then past them.

The really go after it like a pike almost.

Hey crappie guy. Thanks for the info on another subject. My sons in re-hab as we speak. Going after the tullies on Tues the coming week Maybe we will see out there chasing the slabs. Are they talking about hole by Horeshore bay access. How small of jig are talking fly fishing size or larger. Good Luck see ya on the ice, look for the red F-150 with loadmaster on the rearwindow>>>>later the load

I knew where Cliff lived so I know where you are on trails end. We are west of you, if you go down to where the black top ends, you take a left on the dirt road and next left on Hanks road and we are in that cluster of houses.

The fish have been biting for some time now, 3 weeks or so. Pink, silver, or yellow seem to be my colors of choice. The fish seem to be about everywhere, catch many of them while fishing crappies in the deeper water. Though no matter the depth I find most fish caught 10-12 feet down. When I take the kids, I "zone in" on the tullies in 20-24 ft of water and have been catching between 60-100 in a outing. anyone else have any tips?

Those are some nice tullies. I was able to pick up 6 on my outing with a few more lost at the hole. Is anyone hitting the Bill Horn bay area or is all the activaty up on the north east and west ends?

I fished both the northeast and west pockets with about the same luck this past weekend. Mostly in 25-30'water. Looking to get my dad to come out with me this coming weekend. The three-wheeler is down and with the northest landing getting broke up like it was I think truck traffic is out of the question. Any suggestions for the walking man?

you don't have to walk too far from the NW side, It seems like the fish are about everywhere. At times for something new I'll set up in a area away from anyone, give it 10-15 minutes if you don't get one move a little. It's amazing how many people driving by will see what you got and pull right next to you like you are on "the spot" once they show up I'll usually move on to another spot, because they are all good. I'ts just funny to watch people hone right in on you like you're in the magic hole...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.
    • mrpike1973
      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
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      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
    • Wanderer
      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.
    • Sculpin
      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
