I don't know about this year, but used to get many 6 to 8 inch crappie out of the lake in winter on minnows or spoons. Not many keepers. I think the best I ever did thru the ice was six from 9 to 11 inch. Minnows are best because you won't get hardly any of the 2 million small gills, while they will attack the spoon

Its a very clear lake with a few deep holes, 30 ft or so. Haven't gone out there this year, but last year we did good on tip ups. Set tip ups in 5-15ft of water typically on the far end across from the boat launch. Bass and pike, pike mostly in the 20's. Not much luck jigging, but we don't use a flasher, most people seemed set up in deep water though.
You'll get a few flags for sure and just have hole hop while jigging,
have never fished pretty lake before... was just wondering what to expect if I decide to try it out. Would be targeting panfish and maybe throw some tip ups in for pike or walleye. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

As for the fishing, we had an ok day with undersized pike and walleyes on tip-ups. Biggest pike was 25" (with most under 20") and biggest walleye was 13". Nothing jigging although I marked quite a few fish.

We had fun here, tough on size but was a nice time for a Saturday and not having to deal with yahoo's. Tight lines all!

Be careful though because once you get towards the middle and the deep end of the lake the ice is only 3.5 inches and it's supposed to be near 50 degrees Sunday and Monday.
