Go to Tofte or go to Miners. Both are doing well, if you fish them well. Don't be put off if one person says they haven't caught a lot of fish. I'm hearing from a couple people who don't post on this forum who continue to catch fish from both lakes. Follow the given advice about lures and tactics and staying away from other anglers.

Try Lake Mine near aurora. Lake and rainbows have been planted over the years. You will see lots of fish in 30 fow with the trick being to get them to bite. Have fun.

Another good lake to try that not many people fish is the Gilbert Pit. You can usually catch 3 to 6 rainbows a day but most are small, but you do get some nicer you. And even once in awhile a nice laker 10# plus.

So Good luck!

Welcome, Walleye. I haven't tried the Gilbert Pit yet, but its good to know I have another option when I visit the Range. Where do you turn to get to the landing? What depth do you normally find the lakers at this time of year?

Welcome aboard thewalleye. I figure I'm pretty good at locating fish but when it comes to mine pits I'm a little intimidated so I've never tried them.

I'd imagine a guy would get setup on a bench somewhere along the outer rim. Then theres the suspended fish roaming the open expanses of the pit. Anyone care to share or expand on fishing the pits?

The way you get to the landing is go thru the mainstreet and turn down the hill at the corner of the Whistle bird and the hardware store. There is signs there to. The spot we have found to be the best are to the right of the landing in narrows off the points in 60' of water. It's been slow for lakers this year, but rainbows are doing great.

Good luck!

My limited experience would say the lakers are near the bottom and the rainbows are suspended somewhere above. True? Do the rainbows run about 15 inches or so, or are they any bigger?

True the lakers are on the bottom and the rainbows run 10 to 20 ft down. Most of the rainbows run about 12 to 15 inches but we have caught quite a few up to 4 pounds. They are in there.

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
