Went there on the 17th. Ice was 12 inches. Fished from 8-4 and got three rainbows, 12-14 inches in length. Fished in 15ft and was 6ft under the ice. Going on 25th to try it again

Mattkimk-

Thanks for the reply about driving on Grindstone in the trout forum. Was on Square 1/20 and did well. Fished in 15' and they were suspended. Waxies. People driving cars and trucks on the ice. Not I. Can you recommend any pointers on Grindstone. More interested in lakers. Planning on moving a lot and using the vex. Is that the general gameplan for lakers out there? Are the rainbows in shallower as on Square? Thanks for any suggestions if feel like it. If not, no sweat.

I have fished grindstone twice this year. Yesterday was my first laker ever. I caught that in 40 FOW on the bottom with a big shiner. 5-6 inch shiner and this 18 inch laker gulped it down. I have caught rainbow about 5-8 feet under the ice in 12 fow as well as 40 fow. Moved a lot to find idea structure locations while trying for lake trout. I will be hitting square this weekend with the wife so thanks for the info. Do cold fronts knock down the trout bite that you know of?

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