In the summer, there is a distict weedline that runs around the lake, I'd say 20-30 feet from the shoreline. If you are looking for panfish, I would target where those edges would be in the summer. The edges are in 7-10ft of water.

The word is there are decent crappies, sunfish, walleyes and pike there if you know where to look. The weedline is a great palce to start.

One of my favorite spots is the East side sandbar. Good area to search for walleyes also check out the inside corner of the bar on the NE side. Crappies check out the deeper hole on the EAst side.

I love fishing this lake but you'll have to sort a little to get a stringer-full.

i was one that helped put on the sctc fishing contest. Lots of great prizes and there were lots of northerns, bass and sunnies and perch caught and registered. I also was fishing and i pulled in a 2 pound northern which brought me to 15th place and i won a strikemaster polar vision. i believe a 4 lb bass won the contest dont quote me cuz it could have been a northern also but there were some pretty big bass caught. too bad i couldn't of caught that 6.5 lb bass i released 2 weeks prior!

There are some HUGE bass in that lake. I usually don't target them, but I end up catching them in the spring while fishing crappies. They are one heck of a good time to catch on light tackle.

There are some quality crappies and gills in there. The problem is finding them. One of my many favorite for crappies, and eyes about this time of year. One hint, there weren't any house in the spot the last time I was there and there rarely are any houses there.

I think I know the area your talking about. I was fishing close to it a few weeks ago. Except it was a huge group near by there. It got pretty pathetic alot of people setting up tip ups and not watching them. Setting up houses on top of some the perm. houses out there. We may of had a large group and had a little fun on 4 wheelers but the rest of stuff I saw going on from people outside of our group there I thought was poor sportsmanship. The one guy actually left his tip ups set up and left his house.

      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.
