We have a cabin on the east bowl and the fishing can be awesome at times! Did really well on pannies with small leeches and slowly drifting across some of the shallower humps! The west bowl is typically better for eyes. I havent found the crappies but have seen some of the ones the neighbor had, and wow were the dandies! Get a good map and find the humps and your sure to find some of the nice sunnies! Also theres a old road bed that tops out around 15 ft that runs from the eastern island towards the sw shore, which is another great spot to start ur search!

I FISH THE LAKE A COUPLE TIMES A WEEK IN THE SUMMER. This last year there were lots of crappies in that 8-9 inch range. Should be some really good fishing for a few years. Plenty of sunnies but you have to sort though them.

Find where the road bed comes out from the old pit landing site and go out to where it turns west. Find some 15-17' of water and watch out for the underwater brush and rip some lips.

Another spot is the second island (from the new public access into the pit) go to the NE side near the point from shore and look for the same depths. There is an old underwater channel (runs 20-24') from the old days of mining that comes up there with a bunch of old brush that produces as well.

Wish I could send a picture with the spots marked for you.

I grew up fishing that old pit then they blew the dam and it got BETTER !

      Spent the weekend on Ottertail, fishing tough. Waves 1 to 3 ft. 4" rain Sat. night, on/off rain all weekend. Caught a few biggest 18". Water crystal clear 15+ ft, even with waves, due to millions of Zebra Mussel in lake. Weeds and clam shells had many Zebras attached. Still better than working.

      My intent is not to bash here. Many Rapalas are great lures but a heads up I had 5 of them on the casting deck of the boat in the heat within 3 hours every one of the split from the heat!!! Wow that was money down the tubes. I have never had that happen. Also it is never a good idea to slap a lure to get weeds off I'm aware of that nonetheless my bride slapped her's to get a weed off nothing violent but what she got back was a lure in pieces. I love many of the lures but wont be buying any off those again. I have had the lips pull out on the Shad Raps before. My favorite is the Fat raps those are indestructible.

      It happens.  If you timed if post-spawn, its definitely tougher.  It takes them a while to recover and get into their summer pattern.

      Stovetop?  Walleye on west end is tough because there are fewer and they are mostly larger fish that don't seem to behave the same way as smaller ones.

      Pike should be working well on the deep weedlines leading into the two slop bays that Del mentioned. They are commonly calle "The Nursery". Largies should be anywhere in the weeds. Del also hit the nail on the head about the Windsock island and the bay behind it. The windsock island area can be a good walleye producer in the early mornings and sometimes in the evenings. Don't forget to try the larger "bay" (really more of an indentation) past the Windsock island and its associated bay. Lots of boulders in there so be careful, you'll see some shiny rocks! I've had good success in there  for both species of bass and pike, lots of nice sunnies too. There is a reef that runs from the point directly out across Norwegian from the resort marina and runs from there to the other shore running to the northeast. Good spot for the evening walleye bite. You'll probably also want to try fishing the Merry Go Round and the Stovepipe on Wak-Em-Up Bay for walleyes and smallies. I'll try to post more info when I have a bit more time!

      Thanks for the heads up. You going over weed tops or deep?
    • MinnowBuckets
      Is anyone doing well for smallies or walleyes on the river right now? I haven’t been out in over a week and the water has gotten pretty muddy with the recent rain.
    • jigginjim
      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.
