My parents live on the lake and my dad has mentioned that over the last few years he has seen some small weekday bass tourneys on the lake. Does anybody have any info, I would love to fish a few fruit jar tournaments on my home lake.

Gentlemen, I figured that I owed you all a fishing report since I was on here one week ago trolling for information.
The group of us (5 total) had a very good trip, probably better than expected. Set up tip-ups around 9pm last Thursday, then sat around and played cards. It wasn't until midnight when we got that first flag, and it was a dandy.... 23" and fat. Minutes after resetting that tip-up, second one went upl Another dandy 22" (walleye). We caught several other walleye from midnight until 5am, and then some of us shut off and I went to bed.
I woke up day 2 at 11:00am, and two of my buddies were wired on energy drinks and still alive from the night before! and excited about all the fish they had caught that morning. Several pike - 5 or 6 over 30" with 42" being the largest, a few LMB, a few JUMBO perch jigging, and the occasional catfish.
Day 2 nighttime was no less disappointing than the night prior. Still hammered the walleyes at night, just didn't get anything over 18".
Day three was a lot of jerking around on the ice for some small pike, and one bonus 33" fish caught, along with some small perch jigging. Where did the jumbos go?
Day three we did not fish at night. Went to Venus club instead. Fun, but would have had more fun pulling in walleyes.
All and all a great weekend with good friends, and thank you Doug for hosting in your cabin.
We let all of the big ones go, but I am confused if the slot rule applies to Arrowhead. DNR Book said it did not.
We kept a few 18" walleye, the big perch, a couple pike, and 2 LMB for fillets. ALL had eggs. Is this typical for time of year?
Seemed like an awesome lake. LOTS of traffic and I am surprised so few reports.
I will be back with my boat in spring time.

On the lake this morning the landing is in good shape and so is the ice many trucks out. No snow on the ice some water but not much. The first crib I hit was dead it's in 14 flow around a weeds. I moved to a different crib a slowly picking off some gills in the 7 inch range not monsters but will clean. Allot of people out for mid week I think so to no school today.
im sure you will be able to get something from outside the cabin. I'd target that 10ft line outside your cabin. Bass and pike should be still in the shallows around there. If that's what you are after then might be good tip up action. Never fished that part of the lake but if you find weeds there should be fish there

Question for the locals:
Going up to my buddy's cabin this weekend on Lake Arrowhead. We are staying on the north central part of the lake (see attached map with red arrow).
Hoping for some advice on where to find walleyes. We would like to set tip ups out at dusk and view from the windows. Owner of the cabin is not much of a fisherman, and the rest of us are looking for a starting point.
So much question is, is this a productive area, or do we have to travel elsewhere on the lake? Any help would be appreciated.
