Dear LB4 -- Don't know anyone personally who's been out to Tofte recently, however as you probably already know, Tofte is known to be a decent trout lake. If you don't hear from anyone who has been on the ice there as of late, just stop in any of the bait stores in Ely and they can give you the latest. Also, Joe (outfitter practically next to Tofte on the Fernberg) could probably give you some info as well if you want to stop there on Saturday. Good luck! --jslytlemn

Yes, Joe is Joe Baltich at Red Rock Outfitter. It's just past the Tofte public landing on your left. He knows what's up. You could call in advance to pick his brain. He's often out and about and not in the store.

Been there, done that-for the past week.

It has been slow there for more than a week now. You might want to consider other options.

Justin, Justin, Justin cool.gif

Aren't you a tad bit ashamed about keeping success a secret. If you tell them how you did, you may not have to go to church on Sunday to keep from burning in Hell for misleading the guys!! laugh.gif Hahahahahahahahahahahaha grin.gif

Pay no attention to the man behind that curtain!!!!!

Jim, seriously-Its been really slow there the past few days. I did have some good luck there last week thanks to my good buddy- but coming home after a full day out there with 1 or 2 fish lately isn't really slaying them.

I think I may have to start going to church-Or Lucky Seven!! tongue.gif

Lucky Seven!! You are rotten, Justin!! tongue.gif If you do, you will have to go to church to pray for fish, rather than ask for sage advice from the Master, and catch them. grin.gif

Steve -- Thanks for filling in the details for LB4....being new to the forum I was unsure if we were allowed to mention actual people and store names in our posts. I was trying to be a little clandestine! smile.gif Have a great Bash! -- Jeff

Can anyone tell me how thick is the ice at Tofte ? Can you drive from the main road onto the lake with a 4x4 truck ?

My wife & I have fished there for many year's , but never during the winter!

This is the first year we have ice fished . It's been fun .

Thank's

We were fishing by 7 Saturday morning. Fished until 1 and ended up with 7. The bite pretty much quit around 11. It was a good trip up there.

There's about 14-15" of ice. There was one truck on the lake.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      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.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      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!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      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?
