Iwas wonderin the same thing, cause I'm headin up their from the 18th-22. wdgold how did you do? We'er headin up for a family thing and stayin on Cross. I'm the only serious fisherman outta the bunch, but they always want to go out. And they expect me to find the fish for them! I've been on these lakes alot at a buddies cabin, but we usually just drink all day and night. Or maybe some of you local guys could steer me in the right direction? I'm a very respectful fisherman and I'm not lookin for anything to specific, just what lakes and depths to be searchin. I love chasin 'eyes, but panfish info would be great to. Thanx.

P.s. I just broke my hand and got a cast up to my elbow. Hopefully they are bitin on a jiggin pattern, cause that is about all I'll be able to do!

I am also with you guys, will be staying on upper whitefish this weekend. Can any one help us? I am looking for some general walleye tips, specifically depth and structure. I usually don't have a problem with the Bass and Pike, but those Walleyes are tough. In the past I have caught them mostly right at sunset and after dark. Just wondering if daytime walleye fishing will be worth my time.

One of our guides was up there this a.m. and did fairly well. He said they ended up keeping 9 walleyes and caught quite a few northerns. I have been on Gull about everyday, so I didn't even ask where or what depth. I am 99% ceratin he was rigging with redtails. If I had to guess, I would say Upper in 18-22 feet.

Good luck,

Walleyedan

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      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?
