Isle bay is over rated. Try the others and look for cabbage or green weeds. 8-14 feet is my normal depths. It’s just finding them that takes time.

I may be giving it a try next Sat. Seems like the best time is when it melts down a bit right before honey combing.  Not sure if they move in to eat all the craap felling through the ice but seems like they move in the bays more then. If at all some years?

Dang more snow. That may put me off for at least another weekend.  I like it when it's down to almost bare ice and melting.

Guess I'll smoke a Turkey this Sat. :)

Picture from Isle Bay today. :(

The issue now is lake travel. Getting to much wet snow for vehicles without anyone plowing, kind of heavy and wet for hand pulling a sled and to warm and heavy to take the sled back out of storage! :(

Boy, those businesses up there have got to be hurting.  Nobody there.  No roads plowed.  Very sad.

      For Vermilion, the Lowrance lake insight data is identical to Lakemaster, 3 foot contours.
    • delcecchi
      Maybe you should check the various sites that sell mapping stuff?   What is the Lowrance offering?   Is there a different Navionics choice?
    • Bucketcastle
      You're correct trumy.  I just posted this on that page.  Thank you.

      Hi everyone, I will be heading to Echo Lake, in the superior national Forest, the middle of June.  Never been there, but the small amount I found on this site says it's a good fishing lake.  Does anyone have past experience on this lake?  I'm targeting walleye mostly, but Pike and crappie are always on my menu.  Are there any lure colors that have worked well for you?  I'm mostly a live bait fisherman.  Any presentations that worked well?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated with this lake, and I will report back how it went/what worked.  Thank you everyone.
    • trumy
      The echo I'm thinking of is by crane lake that's where I would post my questions 
    • mulefarm
      Any action out there today?
    • Borch
      May want to post this in the BWCA, Duluth.... regional forum.  You may get more responses there as that's the area the lake is in.   Goid Luck!

      I brought a notarized letter from their mother and they required it back when I did it. The other documents prove who he is but not whether the father is spiriting him away.
