How was the fishing on Hanska last year? We are headed there for memorial day weekend and wondering how the fishing is. I have not fished this lake is there any structure on it at all. There is no map on the DNR website.

This lake is your classic prairie pot hole lake with not much natural structure, it has been dredged out in a few places over the years so there is some deep places to consider, the DNR has stocked this lake a couple times and also killed it off to rid all the rough fish. The last time it was killed off and restocked was 3-4 years ago I believe and so the fishing is just starting to come back again, this last winter the walleyes that where caught where getting up to the 15-17" range with some nice crappies and northerns also. The 3 place's I would consider on this lake is, 1-the very south end of the lake out in front of the boat landing, 2-out in front of the county park swimming beach or just west there is an incoming stream mid lake heading north from the south end and 3-up by the Godahl boat landing is another spot they dredged out just out to the south of the landing. There may be other places to consider fishing on the lake but these 3 spots are well worth mentioning and I think this will be a good year there.

There's alot more structure in that lake than people like to think, the whole south basin of the lake is littered with little bars and humps. The dredge lines and the drops offs are all over the places as well.

In the winter most of that lake isn't touched, people crowd around the landings and thats about it.

Word on the street is the DNR is stocking this lake in the fall with unused figerlings, I guess to get a more diverse year class structure.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
