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

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.

      Lake Osakis is a good lake with a few good resorts.. that can a an option for you...  it has the small mouth bass and sunnies you want...  but it's not way up north as you might want..

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
