crop, once we get some stable weather and a little sun, I would look for them up shallow. I would expect to find them in the bays with the reeds/weeds starting to come up. You can throw anything and get a reaction bite. For the most consistency, I recommend a jumbo leech on a plain hook, under a split shot and bobber.

Once they are shallow you will find them everywhere, use the trolling motor and keep a low profile, and you will be able to site fish. Under the Docks and in the reeds, in open pockets in the thick growth.

Remember that they will all be prespawn, still, so CPR is important!

Good Luck

Woodland

I never really target bass, but when we just want to catch fish we fish the weedlines on the flats. A jig a 2-3" plastic will keep you occupied with dandy sunnies, crappies, to many rock bass and several bucketmouths, never more than 2-3lbs but fun none the less.

My biggest came from the hump straight out from the dam outlet, we were jigging minnows for walleye when she hit, 21" and at least 5lbs. Still wishing it was a walleye, haven't figured them out there yet.

      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
