No Riggers

Looking for some advice for my father and some old timers (no to insult anyone) he is taking up to the big lake. He does have a good size boat but no riggers and the guys he is going with probally will not be into the lead core thing. Maybe some good bait fishing spots out of the south end on the east side that might be a good choice this time of year.

Jigs, and minnows on top, or along side of the rocks. Use your graph to find the fish, and work 'em. As a suggested area, try Arnesens reef,Gull rock reef, or 12 mile reef. If you fish out of Zipple, try the open water just outside of the river bouy. Fourmile bay, or the gap if fishing out of the rainey river area. good luck and tight lines<><

I agree with 2 Pounder. Try Arnesen's reef. A few weeks back, all the fish were on the edges in 28-30 feet of water. Stay as close to the reef as you can, but stay in the deep water. The fishing isn't fast and furious, but you will get some. There are some big fish out there too.

      Is there a public access on the lake? I see it is stocked so Im guessing it must be a public lake. Would like to try and fish for lakers through the ice..

      Here's another issue can't play this video: 23 minutes ago, curt quesnell said: Mid January rolls in and fishing remains pretty good on LOTW.  Shot this video Monday. Last round of snow added a million pillow drifts of a foot or two tall.  Off road travel is possible but not like it was last week .NCOR MLK Day Report.mp4     Sorry, there is a problem We could not locate the item you are trying to view.

      I would like to fish walleye and crappies, very new to this as it has been many years since I have ice fished! Using Ice Castle so not as mobile as a person could be with a portable fish house. Appreciate any feedback, Thanks!

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.
