My best advice for Trout Lake would be to pick an area and look for inside hook type structure. I personally like the area in the bay by the old Ryeberg Barn on the southeast side. I don't get up there nearly as often as I wish I could but always seem to find fish in that area. It's almost impossible to fish the lake without good electronics. I have seen times where a change in 2 feet of depth has resulted in the difference of a limit of eaters versus nothing. The fish in that lake really relate to structure. I like yourself would love to hear more of what the local experienced anglers do to catch walleyes out there. We have caught many big fish...but sometimes struggle to find numerous eaters. I don't get to fish during the prime times as farm work comes first.

Anybody else have any helpful hints????

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
