Yes their is a tournament on the lake this weekend off the hwy N boat landing but it’s a very big body of water I’ve been fishing the western side of the lake since November. Fishing’s been ok suckers & shiners doing the job. I have been driving my truck out the last two weeks along with alot of others but if you don’t know the body of water you must use caution ( please ) hope this helps Tight lines
Looking to fish Nokomis this coming weekend with a few of my friends. I fish it during the summer but this will be the first time ice fishing. What is the ice like. Can I use a snowmobile to get around or are they driving on it yet. I don't see any fishing reports. How is the bite and I also heard that there is a tournament this weekend. Just want to know to see if it is worth even coming up.
Heading North from Lake Wisconsin area because I have only been getting short Walleyes on river down here. If any kind soul has info as to area's to hit for Eyes it would be appreciated. I have snowmobiled up there and attend bike week every year, would like to try ice. PM with any info, thanks.

Fished over weekend. Lots of Pike during the day and eye's at night. Find green weeds and don't be afraid to fish shallow. Missed something huge, 6 lbs test can be challenging at times. Tight lines, cottoneye......

Fishing for the first time on this lake in a couple weeks with my fiancé and some of her gfs... not sure what to expect, but it seems like this is a decent lake with probably a night bite? Went back a couple years on reports but nothing real specific. Anyone care to share any info? Don’t need spots or anything. Currently have 9 screws and a plate in my ankle, so if I do get to fish It would be nice to catch something. For eyes in evening just curious what everyone uses for bait? I know some lake shiners work better than suckers and vice Versa. Any input is appreciated. Have a feeling I’ll be mainly tip up/ down watching. Hoping it’s not my only time out this year, but at my healths rate it will probably be the first time out
any info is appreciated. Just trying not to drive 4-5 hours for a skunk lol.

Fished this weekend on Nokomis. West end had 8ish inches of ice - Someone had a full sized truck on the ice Sunday - Many ATVs out there. East side had significantly less ice when we ventured there Saturday morning - 5ish inches.
Fishing was pretty slow but managed a few throughout the day.
