anyone headed to Traverse this weekend? I am heading there with a group of buddies, but have not fished the lake, any suggestions? Is it like Big Stone? I have been there and have done great shore fishing for the opener

Nasty rocks on this lake. Be careful how fast you go, if your not sure where you are. Not sure what the water level is like right now so many of them may be hidden. This time of year try minnows under floats around rock piles.

Trainman,

How does the fishing compare to Big Stone? I would assume there is not as much traffic, which has to be a benefit.

I will be headed to Traverse as well. I was there last weekend visiting and I drove and checked out the lake and it looks about average. I normally fish in the river that leads to the lake. There is a bridge that is about 5 miles west of Wheaton that a lot of people fish off of and I've seen quite a few 10 lbers caught off of it. I fish from a boat and anchor/slow troll in the river area. The last couple of years that weather has really sucked and the forecast is for a low pressure to be moving in. Of course, we all know how accurate weatherman are...Shoot me an email if you want and I can give you my cell # so if you are in an area and want to know how we're doing I will let you know.

Ya gotta watch the rocks out there. They are nasty and can get you if you don't know the lake. Expect fewer but much bigger fish. Good lake for a 5-10lber if thats what you are looking for!

Put our dock out saturday and the water was about 1'-1/2' high and murky. Sunday the lake was like a mirror, I doubt that will happen this weekend. Shore fishing is very good, we rarely use bobbers but cast jigs, the jigs usually outfish the bobbers.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.
