Choose a new lake every year and this year the dart landed on Whiskey lake near Brandon. Any info on ice conditions(atv use)and any useful tips and reports would be appreciated.

Lots of ice, vehicles driving all over, no one staying on the lake for long that I have seen. Fished it once this year, saw a couple of bass and a perch, never went back. Good luck, Brent

I heard there was a significant winter kill about 3-4 years ago or so. Can anyone else verify that? I had heard that it was a decent early season walleye lake but both times I've fished I only got a couple of strikes and no keepers.

There's 60 fow in whiskey, no winterkill, just pressure kill. It's a small lake, and like most when it gets a hot bite it gets fished down to nearly nothing. The walleyes average 26 inches, not a lot of them. The perch are gone for the most part. The sunfish are fairly abundant with decent size structure. There is a stable bass population with some big fish. There are few pike with the average size exceeding 10 pounds. Crappies are cyclic, with the population on the low end right now. There are fish there, just not the numbers it takes to keep my interest. Brent

Thanks for the info guy's, keep it coming if there is any. I found a map and looked at the DNR info and the Northern's and sunfish looked numerous, I guess things have changed since 2003. It's my new lake so I will give it my best and maybe get lucky. Thanks again.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.

      yep, lotta lead on the sippi from this guy. LOL  sometimes I do a simple drop shot setup. tie a #4 hook on and leave about a foot or less of line. then just pinch the split shot on bottom and jig away. didnt have to tie on so many hooks.  
    • MinnowBuckets
      Nice report! Glad to see there are others still getting out on the river too. I need to get simpler in my presentation and use the fathead/split shot technique more often. I can’t afford to lose 3 swimbaits or rapalas each time out. 😭
    • eyeguy 54
      dont talk yourself out of it. might hit a couple spots again this coming week for fun. Over the years I have had off and on luck till thanksgiving time. Couple pics from this fall.  I just like a fathead on 1/8 oz jig or a plain hook with a split shot. Quite the battle when the 28 inch northern tried to eat the bass. It got stuck on the jig so reeled them both in. Ran into the current two times. Fight city. LOL
