Well, it's about that time again for the game fish to end and the "other season" to start. In preparation for this, I thought it might be nice to share some thoughts on where you catch your tullibees. If anyone hasn't ever tried this, you must. Not only can it be a great time....lots of fish and great weather, but tullibee smoked is one of the greatest fish ever. You just have to get past their oily, stinky smell sometimes.

One of my favorite places is Little Pine. Weather restricted me last year, but they were there, I wasn't.
Another pretty good lake is Long Lake by Vergas. I often wonder about Rose Lake too. Just never fish it.
I've heard Pelican can be good as can Sallie. Also heard Buffalo has quite a few as well. Anyone else with some good lakes?
I mostly fish drop lines off spoons but does anyone else have any secrets?

Clitherall is where I usually go. Right off the north access is good, as is off the sharp point on the west side. I use the same methods that you described. Best hours here have been about an hour and a half before sunrise untill just after full daylight.

I have caught many tullibees in the west basin of Ottertail, but they were always incidentals to walleye/perch fishing.

When I was in high shcool, we used to spear quite a few in the dark house on Stalker. That was a lot of fun, you had to be really quick with the spear. This lake might be a good sleeper for tullibees. I know the old timers used to net the west end in the fall.

Pickeral is popular, but I have not fished that one.

Here's a recipe you should try. Fillet ciscoes (tullibee in Minnesotan) and place 3 or 4 fillets in heavyweight aluminum foil. Add a couple gobs of butter, some lemon juice (not too much), salt & pepper, two slices onion, and top with ketchup. Seal the foil to retain heat & steam, put on Coleman stove for 6 to 9 minutes. Open foil and enjoy -- it's the ultimate ice lunch (or shorelunch).

Incidentally, if what someone posted elsewhere is true -- that you cannot clean and prepare fish on the ice, then I'm in potential trouble. (I leave no trace of my cleaning or eating practices.)

Has anyone ever fished Rush lake for Tulibee. In the summer there is always dead one's on the surface. They seem to have good size.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
