Hey everyone- I'm going up with the family and wondering if there is a certain depth, jig size/color, and/or spot that will be producing. First time up, and I am very excited. We are staying at Borderview Lodge. From Borderview, should we head towards the lake or down river?

Hi Scott,

I just got back from 3 days of wind, wind and cold wind. The good news fish are biting pretty good. I would start out on the lake and try about 18 feet with shiners, jig color was not important. The river has some fish in it but I think its only going to get better in the next few weeks. We pulled the Sportcraft for the season. It was a good year. Good luck to your group! Are you still in the business?

      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?
