They do bite once in awhile just not very fast or consistent.

Todd: The Walleyes on LOTW just have a great UNION and quit at sundown... They go back to work at sunrise... LOL... Now the Pout have the night job and you can get them running around after hours.. Seriously, the water is to stained and even Old Marble Eyes can't see very well in that water after dark.. But the Pout aren't that bad, are they??? They smell their way around, or is it they just plain SMELL!! confused.gif Better off sleeping after dark and be ready for the HOT Sun Up Bite grin.gif!!! Kaz

Thanks for the help. We're bringing up some tip ups with bells in case the pout want to wake us up!

We have stayed in Bob's sleepers out of Warroad formerly Jakes. We bring rattle reels with and lay the lure real close to the bottom. Most likely you will catch pout but we have caught a few walleyes. We have actually caught a 26" fish in the dark.The pout can be a real blast to catch just do not put to many down or you will spend the whole night untangling from the pout.

Good luck and have fun.

Thanks for the posts. Speaking of eelpout tangle, I once was at the Eelpout Festival on Leech Lake, and had one heck of a morning eelpout tangle.

I am told the same thing every trip up there but I dont believe that for a minute. I have caught my biggest fish up there after dark. You wont catch as many as the daytime, but some of the biggest eyes have come at night. You just have to move shallower after dark. We fish deep during the day and move to the shallows just before primetime. I look at it this way, I am up there too fish and I cant catch them at the motel or bar...lol.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
