Troll crank baits along the shore lines at 10-20 fow.....you'll get pike and eyes.

If your in Crane try the west shore line by the green boat house , 100 yards up or down from it . I usually get some Northern while trolling a minnow and gold spinner for Walleye.

Any weeds you can find should hold pike this time of year.

Just got back. found a lot of Northerns on the West side of Crane trolled the creek on the north side of Pine point lodge...Careful it gets shallow in parts. Hit under the docks in the creek and if you get a big one with a yellow and red diamond spoon in its mouth that would be mine! Also in the Namakan narrows we fished the small grassy corners and tagged quite a few. Having several people using the same color lures helped a lot most of the time the first guy got bumped and the 2nd caught the fish. Also in Hammer bay south caugt a lot of larger northern. Good Luck

      Spent past 4 days (and nights till 2am) on Ottertail one wheelhouse and 4 portables. Bite was next to (0). 5 guys 4 day got 5 eye 14" to 17" and 6 perch 7 to 10". Friday -21 on the lake at 3pm. Pressure at 30.90. Did not move a lot but did some moving 30' to 9'. Saturday bit warmer day made it to 11 deg. Same result moved a lot humps, breaks valleys, 40' to 9'. Marked lots of fish in deeper water and some at 9 to 16'. Resort owner talked to half dozen other villages on west end, All having no success. Pressure never got below 30.28 but temps warmed to upper 20' on Sunday. Not a banner weekend but sometimes "that's fishing" Took a fall on slick icy parking lot week ago, found out today I have 3 fractured ribs. No wonder my right side hurt a bit.

      I've had issues with my Eskimo Z-51 reopening holes, getting caught at different parts along the hole ON occasion. Other times it ripped right though. So my answer pretty much sucks but from experience they aren't the best at opening holes.

      Very nice weather to be out chasing Walleyes/Saugers. Some extra special good news in this video wrap up
