My family has a cabin at a nearby lake, so we have fished it in the past, but not for quite a few years. It is such a deep lake (140 ft) with severe drop offs, that we had little luck with anything except Northerns on Shad Raps and plugs. My brother pulled a 26 lb. northern out of here though... I've been thinking of trying it again this fall, so let us know how it goes if you get out there. Just 5 miles away is Pine and Big Pine lakes off of highway 18 and the bass and crappie bite have picked up and been very good there this year, particularly lately. Always been a good walleye lake, but they have been fairly elusive over the past few years.

Thanks for the info Jaypo. I was just wondering how people do on this lake. I saw that the DNR stocks it heavily with lake, brown, and rainbow trout. Thought it might be fun to fish in a hunrded plus feet for lakers that is within an hour drive of White Bear Lake.

      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. 😀
