Bring crawlers and lots fo them. Fish shallow and on the breaks and you will find them...Fish SLOW and light gear.

If I were you I would pack

1/8 1/4 3/8 oz lindy sinkers so your ready for most depths

small swivles

clear green/red/yellow/glow beads

Red Hooks

Worm Blower Upper

Make your own lindy's 4-8 feet in length with one or two beads in front of your lindy rig hooks. I always run 2 hooks for crawlers on that lake. Use the worm Blower Upper to have the crawler float up above the weeds. Fish the edges of weeds and get your rears up early. Usually we are on the water before sunrise and off by 10 am. Start off on points or rock piles. Or start on the island. Not a hard lake to fish but just gotta find a spot and try it. Some guys pull cranks on flats at low light and do good. Tried it once out deep with down riggers and got 3 in an hour then nothing :S Some guys jig with fat heads and do ok. Never fished minnows up there.

Fellas, I'll likely be out on White Earth during that timeframe. Be sure to stop by and say howdy. I'll be in a black and red Skeeter with a 150 Yammy on the back.

My wife's family rents a bunch of the new horizon cottages every year over the 4th. They've been doing it for years. We'll be up there this year again. Thought you might be one of the rellys.

Don't worry about me catching too many walleyes on White Earth- that's one lake that really has my number. Despite all the great reports on the lake here, I consistently struggle out there. There's tons of area lakes I consistently catch walleyes on, but White Earth is NOT one of them.

Anyone hear how the tourney went out there this past weekend? Plenty of boats around on Sat. Any idea of how the winning team was fishing?

I heard the winning weight was something like 6 fish for 11 pounds and most people had a tough time out there, but that is all second hand info. Scoot were you out there on Saturday? I thought I saw a boat that matched the description you gave fishing by the island.

Yep, I was out there. I was by the island towards sundown on Sat night. Did you pull in there later in the evening with another fella?

Yep, I was there with two other people and fished more on the SE side. We weren't there long, just long enough to go down that side once.

      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
