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.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
