Usually a good destination in the winter. I've done well there for years along with others. It can go dead just like any other hot spot though. I've usually done good if you draw a line across the middle of the lake and fish from that middle line north. You'll notice if you go most fish from the middle line and north. If you get on isolated clumps of green cabbage and other weeds, usually that's were you'll find the gills and crappies. The southwest corner can be good also and worth checking out. You'll see a point, fish out from it or either side.

Has anyone been out here yet on the ice?

I have been here in the summer time and caught very nice bluegills and some perch. I have never made the trip up in the winter.

Looking for lake travel on the Polk County Lakes. Coming up for a 4 day trip and curious if people have been out after the snow this weekend. Hopefully good for 4 wheel drive pickups?

New Moon

CONDITIONS
Partly Sunny

ICE DEPTH
12 inches

AIR TEMP
21° - 25° F

WATER TEMP
Below 40° F

Caught 3 limits of 8 to 9 inch sunfish. But only 3 crappies on the north east end of lake. Crappies are typically in the 6 to 8 inch range but 10 to 11 inchers are out there. The walleyes basically disappeared out there over the last 3 years. But the bass and northern sizes are increasing big time. We got a 40 inch northern out there this winter. And the bass actually bite on tipups out there all winter. With many in the 16 inch size bracket with some reaching 18 and 20.

Heading to Big Round today.  Never fished it before wondering what to use for walleye and crappie.  Where is the best spot to go for crappie and walleye.  Taking my five year old son and want him to have a good time.  PM please if you don't want to broadcast any tips over the open network.  Thanks

I haven't been out there this year but one caution area is if you are leaving the boat landing to your left there is a creek inlet with running water stay away from that I've seen a truck go through there every year.
