 The best part of mining, is the lake that is left when the ore is gone. Let us show you how we catch trout on a pit lake. Enjoy.

Great video, we have a hand full of pit lakes by us but I have never fished them. It’s my understanding that some of them are close to 400 feet deep, not sure how accurate that is but that’s what I have been told.

I think  some pits get close to 650' deep. I only fished them in summer, never winter.

For anyone questioning the date this was filmed, it was the last week of trout season. Unfortunately I was not able to post it till trout season was over due to family needs. Also,if your interested in fishing pit lakes. Go to the DNR lake finder and type in "pit". Be very careful when ice fishing them. I feel the ice is never as thick and they tend to have springs.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
