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

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
