lITTLE TURTLE is a great fall fishing lake with big eyes and nice pike and numbers of big gills bulking up before winter. But dont limit your self to just that lake you could also try Maple and Big Turtle and have good luck.

Little Turtle got pounded hard years back but the walleye have been recovering nicely since. The problem right now is there is a tremendous population of 4 to 5 inch perch in the lake. I fished it at late ice out and where ever you went you couldn't keep them off your hook, both shallow and deep. The walleye have so much food right now it makes for a tough bite. In fall there are a lot of good walleye lakes to fish such as Jessie, Bowstring, Sand to name a few. Good luck, if nothing else the area in fall is a great place to just sit back and enjoy!!!

I own a home on an area lake, so I am up there often and all I do is fish. I mostly fish for smallies and lagemouth and the bite has been great in the morning and evening, spinner baits have worked well. still fishin with suckers and shiners have produced the biggest fish lately (24"largemouth, 22" largemouth, 18" smallie, and lots of 15"-17" fish). The pike have moved a little deeper do to the hot weather. Their are alot of smaller lakes in the area that produce some realey nice bass. I dont do much walleye fishin, so im not much help in that dept.

I never vote for, I alawys vote against

Thanks for the replies, where would try for the eyes at from the boat landing? We went to the left in 10-15ft of water trolling with crawlers. Cault big gills a few crappies and millions of little perch.On the DNR lake search their is some nice size crappies in there.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
