I need some last minute stuff.

Personally, I'm going with a 1/8 oz. jighead with a emrald shiner on my jigging rod. A 6 ft snelled LBR with either a leech or a big lake shiner on my LBR rod. My standard blue-chrome suspending shad rap on the trusty crankbait rod. Also, I'm gonna be going with some soft plastics and medium sized husky jerks for throwing up on smaller shallow shelves after dark on my other rods. I might throw a 1/16 oz. with a fathead on a ultralight, if things ghet really tough. It might be hard to do though, with the winds where supposed to have.

I think most fish will be shallow and stay shallow all weekend. It's gonna, be cloudy, windy and all around crappy. Low light. I love that kind of weather. I'll be 10 ft or less all weekend. Hopefully, the fish agree with me. I don't think OT is on my list of lakes though. I don't feel like fighting that lake with the wind we're gonna have.

I'm a little worried about the water temp.. It was only in the high 40's or low 50's last weekend, and I don't think this weather has really warmed it up. It might of came down a bit even.

Anyone got any last minute tips?

Good Luck. I'm outta here, Eden Prairie, about 9 pm tonight. It's gonna be good to catch some real fish. Finally!

There's a big rock point on Clitherall, if you're used to bobber fishing it's a good place to do something you're comfortable with. Use a slip bobber on the deep edge of that thing. Set it kid of deep 8 ft or so, and let it flow out. Or, live bait rigs and jigs will do just fine, and probably better. But, who knows? You just gotta try stuff, and see what happens.

Never fished Anna, but I love Clitherall. I fished it three time last year, mainly for bass, but we did very well on everything. I gotta 28 1/2 in walleye of that rock point last year. So , I know big fish live there.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I noticed this morning that it had heaved out in Miller Bay kind of between the DNR access and Four Mile Bar. Really raising heck with my shore. Going to have to take a sledge hammer to my shore tomorrow so I can get out.

      any current report on ice thickness around palisade?
    • PRO-V
      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.
