Hello,


Thinking of heading over this weekend with my dad and wife. Looking to get into some panfish. Any pointers would be appreciated and also a ice report. Thanks much.

Fish were there last night,getting them to bite was another matter. Either the fisherman , real low barometer,or both. Had  fun anyway.

Anybody ever get catches of White Bass thru the ice there? Always wanted to try it the Spring/Early Summer, but curious as far as Ice Fishing?

How's the ice on Tainter never been out there before any areas that you should use caution around or avoid? How is the walleye population? Any tips or tricks for this body of water.? Can pm me

Not a report just observation. Seems like activity off Elk Point. Waiting for drivable ice.

Tainter is heavily green in many areas... of you are going to pull boards they get hung up in the slop and don't pull great. I'm still trying to figure this lake out... i can't find any crappie???

No reports since February? Does nobody fish this lake or is just kept quiet. I fish Menomin quite a bit but havent tried Tainter. Just wondering how the walleye bite is. Might come up and explore with pulling cranks and boards.

Spent the day on tainter. fished off elk point, first point to the south/east. Set up in about 12 ft of water. Marked fish pretty consistently but the bite was rough. Started out jiggin assorted spoons tipped with walleye minnows. Got thumped twice right off the bat but came up empty. Minnows drew the most attention hands down. I did jig with plastics as well as waxies. ended up with about 5 perch 1 or 2 were tweeners. (maybe 9-10inches) also set out a couple tip ups along the break. NO LOVE!! oh well i still love this lake, she just a fickle mistress in the winter for me.

stay safe and good fishin
