The lake has most any type of fish you want to target. The ice really varies on this lake, strongly recomend not driving, and walking or using a wheeler. As far as tips, stay away from the masses, there is plenty of structure in that lake that you can fish by yourself, and catch plenty.

Probably better than half of the perm houses that are out there are spearing. Great lake for it, clear water and plenty of pike. Just try near one of the many exposed reed beds.

That depends on how mobile you are. The lake is covered in reed beds. The masses are all set up just out from the acceses, both the public and BJ's $3 access. If you are not familiar with this lake, I would recomend fishing here because the ice conditions vary badly. You can have 14", and just 10 ft away 2". I personally do not drive my truck on this lake, and am careful as to where I go with my wheeler.

I can understand that the lake can have bad ice. The differenece in that water level on that lake, and the weird diffeence will do that for the ice.

It also has the issue of mass amounts of carp that keep certain areas open, or very little ice. There is also the issue of current, seeing as there is a river that flows through it.

The spearing has been very dead for the last 2 weeks, before that it was decent. I would try Grand Lake it has been pretty good.

Can't see the bottom but definitely clear enough to see fish come in!

I was on a lake few days ago, and you could have speared in 25 feet of water. Crazy

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.

      Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them

      Fished West end Sat AM, typical result.... NADA!  There is a huge pressure ridge running across Wake'em'up bay, across Center Island all the way into Norwegian Bay.  Also one out in H'O'L bay. Use caution out there!

      I fished 3 different lakes in the area this last weekend, and they all seemed to have a consistent 8-10" of ice.  I don't have any info on Pelican, but I would have to assume about the same out there.  I saw some ATVs and snowmobiles out on Pelican driving by it on Sunday.

      The last I heard, they are planning on rebuilding the store and shooting to have it open by fishing opener 2019.  We'll see if that happens or not.  I'm sure the red tape with the insurance companies is a mile long, so getting to the point or rebuilding could take some time.

      The second weekends is in the books. For now it looks like we dodged a bullet with the pressure ridge not becoming active from the 46 degree day Saturday. Hillmens is    asking to  drive extra slow.  Our grand daughter Ashly was up with Davon and our great grandson Bentley.  Pretty cool as Bentley got to reel in a fish making him  the 7th generation of our family to wet a line on such a grand lake.    Because of all the flooding around the houses and the slower fishing Jonny boy and I put here in high gear and proceeded to move most of the fleet on sunday.  It was a good test as we moved California, montana ,florida,. north Dakota and Kentucky. Plus reset them and got all the guest back fishing.  The fishing could of been better, but it always slows down when all the skids houses and traffic hit the lake.  Yesterday we moved montana and north Carolina out deeper where Jonny boy was going to spend the night. I was dragging but around 3pm but did get a second wind aftera hot shower, I got back out on the lake as the sun was setting. Again another spectacular sunset was my reward for a hard days work.  Were going to move old Minnesota and north Dakota today as we push out deeper.  Just like every year we will drive over a million fish looking for the mother load

      6” near middle with expanding ice heave and open water.  Be careful and don’t try to cross, it’s been shifting and unstable.
