There is plenty of ice and easy travel conditions. There were trucks all over yesterday.

We had a group that fished in the derby last weekend.  We fished a mud flat on the northern half of the lake.  We mainly used rosie reds and emerald shiners.  Fishing was slow for our group.  We had a lot of flags where something grabbed it, took out six inches of line and then dropped it.  We mostly caught perch..biggest was 10".  We also caught a bunch of small walleyes.  I bet we had about a dozen of them in the 6-8 inch range.  Hopefully all those little guys can continue to grow and make for some fun fishing in a few years.  Ice was sloppy.  Lots of water/slush on top.  Trucks were driving all day.  By the evening the bottom of the landing had a big pool of water.

Biggest walleye of the tourney was a little over 25",  Biggest Northern was 30", biggest Perch was 11", and I think Crappie was around 14".

I've fished Butternut many times and have only gotten 1 small bass. Really not a bass lake. I think that 1st cast bass is an episode of good luck

My family is going up to our cabin on butternut over Memorial Day weekend. We always have awesome luck with walleyes, perch, and musky. But what about bass? I know there isn't a lot of them in there, but I would like to try it. Any info would be helpful. My dad rents out the cabin, and a guy caught this largemouth first cast off of our dock a few years ago. Thanks.

I will be staying on the lake for a week at the end of July and am wondering if I could get pointed it the right direction to catch some pan fish for a fish fry and maybe a musky or two for the family members who have never caught one. Thank you.
