Well it has many diffrent fish... walleye,pike,trout,bass and who knows whatelse..... the best way is downriggers but be prepared to spend alot of time on the water... fish are hard to catch...west side there are afew humps about 90 feet down that are kinda preductive.. but then again there are alot of spots on the north bay area....
you can try top water on teh north west side where it gets only about 5 feet at a 100 yards out.. but be prepared cuz it drops off fast..... and the west side is like that too... shallow on one side of the boat but on the other it is dark...
good luck... there are some big ones.. I mean big ones in there... was spearing there about 3 years ago and a northern came in and took the decoy..... the you could see the face but not the tail...... must have been close to 30lbs.... good luck

      My second year owning a cabin on Pine Island and this lake is humbling. We did ok Memorial weekend catching many small ones. I did catch my best walleye on the lake with a 24” off the dock. Didn’t do well this last weekend as it sounds I shouldn’t have forgot the leeches in the fridge. I hope to have better luck this weekend. It is still tough to have to come home and go back to work.

      I have got to find out how to do this photo shop stuff. It would be fun pranking the relatives on FB. No really I did catch those walleyes Machu Picchu!  😂

      Got the boat upgraded with  different depth finders and trolling motor so I could chase walter and had to test it today. Hit a local lake with a friend and we got 7.  Pulled spinners and slow death with 1 oz bouncers. First time after eyes with this boat.

      How did the pizza taste? I'm thinking that might not be too bad!

      Bowkill78, Most everything is going some place on the Clearwater lake. Bass, pike and walleyes. It all depends on your choice of equipment and what you hope to try for.  Panfish and bass are on beds, trolling can also hookup with a pike or walleye.

      Give them all a shot you will be there for 5 days.  Get a lake map before you go and look it over. It makes it easier for the resort folks to point out spots instead of just saying over there. 😀
