The ice is thick , you can drive full size trucks out from the dam.

The fishing has been slow , maybe not fishing deep enough ?

It's our first time ice fishing. WHAT HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE

FISHING? Maybe I'm doing somethings wrong.

Fishing has been pretty decent. I have done a few spur of the moment trips for the evening bite and have done reasonable well. I have been picking up my walleyes and some really nice jumbos in 8-10 feet of water around the various rock piles, islands, and points on the lake. I have also picked up a few crappies on the far basin by walking out via snowmobile trail.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing

tearin' - do you live in duluth or the Falls? Seems like the bite would be better on Rainy? In any event, thanks for the info on Boulder. We have had limited success there this year. Hearing more about Fish Lake than Boulder at this time of year.

I am going to school down here at UMD, so yeah I am living in Duluth. I have been able to find some good fishing down here but you know there are advantages to fishing in your own back yard!! I will be heading back north in May and will be at One Stop for the summer. If you wanna fish Rainy come on up!!

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      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.
