be careful if planning to drive out there, a couple weeks ago three quarters of the lake was open.

I was out tonight and to my surprise I managed to catch a limit's worth of walleyes. Four came on a small spoon with waxies and the other two came on a plain hook with a fathead. They were biting from 3:30 - 6:30.

It's nice to finally see that lake rebounding to where it once was. I was fishing in 17.5 feet and could see my lure all the way to the bottom... something I haven't seen in quite a few years.

All the fish I caught tonight went back in the lake to get bigger.

Sounds like the lake is starting to get back to wht way is usta be. I remember back in the day when i was out ther ewith my old man, he was always hitting up monster walleyes out there, but i was tuff to find them in the last few years. The lake was very dirty last year during the summer. Still that way in winter

Hope it gets better year after year.

Any sugestions for a first timer on howard. i'm gunna try to get out there on tuesday. Not looking for anyones hot spot but a general idea of some spots to try would be helpful. I am looking at the DNR map and see there is a 17' hump out near the middle out from the race track. Thoughts from anyone would be great. Thanks.

Ice thickness ranges from 8 - 14 inches. The few spots that recently froze over are just 8 inches thick and people are driving full size trucks everywhere out there. I drove halfway out and used the wheeler to get the rest of the way.

When it comes to structure on Howard there's really no surprises. For the most part the map gives a fairly accurate depiction of depths. There are four common locations people fish for walleyes: the 17 ft hump, 18 ft hump, Judd's Bar, which is straight north of the race track and the far eastern end of the lake. These are excellent starting points for walleyes.

Wheres the best place to access the lake? i would like to drive out, considering my truck just took a S%*T on me, so im gunna have to take to the lady's car which doesnt quite fit my house and sled in there to well, otherwise im just plan on walking out and bear the elements all day, which wouldnt be bad either since it is my first time to the lake, so end up moving a few times anyways.
