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.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.

      thank you!   and thank you for the advice... i will try it out in my boat this week, and report back
    • leech~~
      Welcome to the forum.   Go try it out in 5 feet of water before you write it off.  The older units need a pretty solid water column to send the echo back and forth.  Good luck.

      So i recently picked up a Zercom Clearwater Classic for 15 bucks off craigslist....     I fired the unit up and the LCD screen works, back light works, and when i plug the transducer in, i can hear the transducer "clickling" (i can see a slight change in the LCD lines when i plug the 'ducer in....so its almost like it recognizes that its there....) but as i'm messing with it i can't get it to see my hand or the floor...  (ie. the LCD lines never move off 2 ft)   I thought it might be the Transducer.... but this 'ducer has an old school RCA jack the reminds me of the old Red/White/Yellow cables from my Nintendo....(see image)  Obviously zercom isn't around anymore so getting a tranducer is brutal.   Marcum bought zercom, but they couldn't help when i reached out to them.  Called Fishlectronics, they didn't have anything....    See the pictures to see the LCD lines that never move and the 1990's tranducer plug.....      Did i waste my 15 bucks?

      Sounds like a worn wire grounding out some where.  One of my trailers I just pulled the whole wire harness off and put on a new one. Not fun but it worked. 
    • Hookmaster
      I checked out the truck wiring and it looked good. I towed my duck boat last weekend and the running lights worked. So, it must be my fishing boat trailer. I'll check light bulbs first but may need to rewire since it's seen 20 summers.

      On the main basin... Good fall walleye fishing continues.  Jigs and frozen shiners working well in 28-32'.  Anchor up and jig.  If not finding fish, drift with spinners or troll crankbaits to find active fish.  Fish starting to stack in front Pine Island and other south shore locations.  Some days fish are sliding shallow.  Shiners continue to run up the Rainy River.  On the Rainy River... Shiners are running.  Walleyes are just starting to enter river.  Anglers reporting success both jigging and pulling crankbaits.  Increased sturgeon activity.  Walleye activity is increasing as shiner run continues.     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing is excellent.  Strong numbers of walleyes being caught on mud flats and adjacent to islands. 15 - 25'.  Spinners, crankbaits and jigging all still producing.  Walleyes starting to move towards structure and outside mouths of bays.  Crappie activity strong, guides helpful for crappies.

      It would be nice to have a massive private slough or hunting woods but for the majority of us poor folks it's part of the game. Some days you win and some days the other guy does. Or you just sit home do nothing and play with yur doober!  😕
