you should be able to find walleyes in the bay yet. It is a shallow bay (3-5ft) There are numerous deeper spots. Deep in the bay is 7 to 9ft. Walleyes will be in these deeper areas. Along the east side of the bay is the deepest water and runs 9ft or so for basicly the length of the bay. Try the north end of this, you will be able to see cabbage weeds, the walleyes should be there. Troll, drift or cast a jig and sinner in the 7ft areas. Bobber fishng a leech will also get these fish if you have them located. Your fishing opertunities are numerous but this should get you started.

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
