Well, both have a lot of largemouth in them. I mostly fish Games because that is where we camp. On Games I like to fish in the bay on the west side of the lake. I usually do that around this time of year because it gets pretty weedy in there. I like to throw a chartreuse Mr. twister on a spinner or a weightless senko worm. another good bet for bass would be the sunken island. On Norway I mainly fish in the reeds on the west side. Hope this helps and good luck.

On Games I too usually fish the bay. On Norway I fish in the bay before going into Little Norway mostly. Out in the middle of nowhere.

My daughter and fished Games on Monday on the South side about 20ft west of the inlet from Norway to Games about 10ft from shore and caught bass all day long with slip bobbers and minnows. Most where a pound to pound and a half but hooked into 5 nice 3 ponders. Strange the large ones where all the same size. We cast out and the wind would push the line closer to the weedline and down the bobber would go. Also the realing the line in slow usually hooked the bigger ones. Don't worry there all swimming around for somebody else but did manage to keep some big bluegills for a meal. Have fun!

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
