I grew up on the lake, Fished it quite a bit. There are a few Walleyes; hard to find at times, Lots of Little Northerns, Some Big Bass, Crappies of all sizes, and many sunfish.

If we would happen to catch a Big Walleye, Northern or Bass it went back into the lake.

I have lived on the lake for 3 years and fished it since i was 16. I have personally never caught an eye in there but i know people who have. A kid i went to school with actually did pretty well out there this winter. Lots of weeds in the summer though. I know the dnr netted it 2 years agao and they got 6 in a trap net out in front of my house all 22-29 inch fish. The way it's going right now in a couple years there won't be any water in there anymore. It's scary how low it is now.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
