Fished for a couple hours this evening on the lower end using shad, twister tails, and Rapalas but no biters. Might be a bit early yet. I am guessing in a couple weeks or so. Water level has dropped a bit.

I saw guys targeting eyes out there last weekend but I'm not sure how they did. I was fishing Largemouth and they were really active.

I would troll stick baits (husky jerks) and shad raps on the weedlines in the evenings and for a couple hours after dark, but not for at least 2 or 3 more weeks.

Got a 20" walleye in 3 feet of weeded water yesterday using a bluegill rig. Also got one a month ago the same way - They must lay in those weeds out there all summer.

TJ, were you fishing lower or upper. My fall fishing has been good in the past by trolling the north shore , going west from sand beach area. I hope that this year will be the same...Good luck to all......

I was fishing Upper both of those bluegill fishing times when I got a walleye, but I have caught walleyes out of the boat much more often on Lower - I like the area you mentioned as well as the rigging the end (south) of the Sand Point hump, and trolling the north side of the litle island.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
