Fish the deep hole off the point to the right of the landing. Bring Waxes and Crappies minnows and you should get some gills and crappies.

was up there this weekend just off the point, had the camera with me. What a blast watching all the gills swiming around. My real question was at about 4:30 everyone else pickup and left the lake. There was probably 20 -25 cars on the ice and in 10 minutes they were all gone. does this lake shut down at night?

My experience has been yes. The best bites that I have had was from 7am - noon. Then a fish here and there after that. This was for panfish, but if your in the right spot you can pick up some walleyes in the evenings. But they are usaully hard to find but some of the locals up there have them dailed in. So I hope they dont get to made at me for talking about it.

      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
