There isnt much fishing news from Whiteface from the locals ,,, and the access leaves a lot to be desired so not too many trailer up that way from the Duluth area ,,, I drove by it yesterday on my way home from Ely and didnt see a boat on the water

It's been 2 years since I've fished this lake. I hope you have a good navi/GPS program, there is a lot of skag busting structure on that body of water depending on what the water levels are like..trust me. 

 In the past we've only done OK on WFR, and I haven't spent the time to learn it. As LoonASea indicated, its a haul from the Duluth area.  But it is a beautiful lake, and the camp grounds were well maintained. We used the Northern access (campground) ramp, it was in decent shape and the parking lot is nice sized. 

 Sorry I can't be of more help.

I've only fished it a few times but I'll put in my 2 cents. Darkwater lake. Water levels are about normal this year. Try wind blown points/humps. Mainly eater eye's. Lots of small pike in bays/weeds. There are crappies but I haven't tried for them.

I will agree with what has been said so far. Have only fished it a couple times, but always managed enough for a meal. Nothing big, but it also has some big gills if you can find them The campground access is a bit of a chore for big boats, but fully manageable. Have a good map as there are lots of lower unit removers out there. I've always had my best luck fishing flats areas. Fish will be scattered, but nearly always bite. Good luck.

Yep, pretty lake. Lots of area to explore. Maybe not the best place for a big eye but for action I think its as good or better than the other lakes around the Duluth area.

While there is a thread and some chatter on whiteface...anybody ever caught/heard of bass on whiteface? I didn't think there were supposed to be any but when digging around on google I see pics of largemouth's supposedly caught out of whiteface reservoir mn?

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
