You can't go wrong with Clitherall Lake by any means for sunfish, crappie, bass and walleye. What are looking to target?

I really haven't fished the area much because of the weather and tournaments. I have another tournament this weekend so I'll be spending time on one lake for awhile.

West Battle should be heating up soon for walleyes. The water temps are still a tad chilly before the eyes kick into gear.

Otter Tail has been decent from the reports.
Shiner minnows are key as shiners are still running on/off with the weather changes.

Thanks for the responce ChuckN. I'm primarly looking for Eyes but would like to take the wife and son out for some pan action as well. Don't care for the Bass and Northern.

There's panfish in Clitherall, just look in the shallows right now. Walleyes on the breaks. There's been a lot of boats on Clitherall so that may help pinpoint some walleye.

Rush Lake is a good bet for panfish too and walleye action. Look for weed/rock humps for the eyes. That's what I heard from last weekend's walleye tournament there.

I will be coming up to the Battle lake area on the 12th of Jun for one week and was wandering if any one could point me to a good lake to try my luck. I have a cabin on clytheral but have never fished it before. Have however fished battle and otter tail. Any ideas would be helpful. Not afraid to trailer every day if needed.

      I haven't done it too much to this point, still trying to find my way around. All I have done so far is go from my place at Wabanica Bay to Pitt and then took the Pitt grade 20 miles in or so.  I've also covered all of the dirt roads around there.

      You bet!  And I know it! 😁

      I dislike posting a question here, but after fishing this lake since ice out at least once a week I'm struggling to find the Crappie. Have only caught one and it was spawned out. Checked all my favorite spring spots and found nothing. Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Lots of gills and more largemouth than ever, but no crappies.

      Your lucky you got use of yours so quickly.  Mine literally didn't get used for about 12 years even though I brought it with every time I went after big fish.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .
