I was there last week end, we found lots of fish in Hammer Bay we had 10 walleyes Sat. You could graph tons of fish in 32-34 feet but they didn't want to bite. The fish we cought were heading up to the shallower water 8-12 feet. They short bit jigs and hammered the minnow on a spinner. I had a fire tiger that couhg the most between us. We also cought a few northerns fishing the same way. The fish really were on the move. It seemed each hour would bring a different size class fish or type. Rainbows and lite pike minnows did better than chubs for us, Nothing on leaches.

The warden said that the crappies were starting at the mouth of Swansons Bay I believe he said. We didn't have time to try for them.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
