What species of fish do they get out there? Was in town today and saw a lot of shacks put there.

Was on little Jeff last Monday and had 5in of ice. Washington has 5in of North shore but has some sketchy spots so be careful. Lake I'm on now has 7+ everywhere I've drilled holes. Finally found the fish this morning.

We got set up right off the south needle at about 5 30 caught three. 27in 20in 5in. Missed three on bobbers. A lot of fish moving through. Guessing some were tullibe. Moving the house now. The 27 was a pig. Hopefully the bite gets better. We were in 35ft of water.

Pool 4 fishing?

I am coming to fish it this week i hope and am seeking a little advice. Ive fished pool 4 a handful of times and everytime we catch a decent number of small fish with a lot of saugers and i realize this is likely because of depth but i have tried shallower and many different types of water without much avail. I was just wondering if someone could help with a little strategy to catching more walleyes and less saugers. Is it primarly done at channel entrances near faster moving water in shallow water? Also I have not ventured to far south are there good fishing places all along the river? And info is appreciated.feel free to send a pm if youd like it to stay a little more private.

See I would likely argue the other side of the crappie debate. Yeah just like walleye it makes no sense to keep a huge female fish because of her spawning potential. I however think a 10in state wide minimum on crappies would be great. Certain lakes could change slots as needed to lower populations and such but the number of lakes in the state with nothing more than 10in crappies is just stupid. Find a good crappie fishing lake where all you catch are 12 to 13in or bigger and it will make more sense. It's stupid how many lakes it's impossible to find nice crappies on.

I like to keep about 13-18. I have cleaned fat little 11in walleyes and got plenty of meat for a fry. That was on a huge lake with huge walleye populations and very little fishing pressure though. However I honestly would rather have people keep what most would consider "to small to keep" rather than "to big to keep" a nice healthy 20in walleye means probably more to the spawning cycle than most 13in fish ever will. Also the chances of a 20in fish making it to trophy status is exponentially more which personally I like to target size more then numbers when I can. I dont eat a ton of fish so I don't need to keep many. It is to each there own I guess just my opinion. Also I think keeping size for crappie is a much larger issue than walleyes.

I am on the south side of osakis. We have 14-15in everywhere we have drilled. We drove a full size truck out with a 16ft ice castle. There are still a couple water pockets in places but ice has formed over them. For the most part everything is rock solid again. Just take your time and watch for bad spots where they was houses during the warm weather.

I have been out on the south end the last couple days. Finding mostly 14-15in of ice with one hole at 13. We did find an old spot from a house that water swirled though and a truck would have dropped through if for sure so be careful. Crappies are easy to find. Struggling a little more on the walleyes. Crappies will bite well if you figure out exactly how to jig for them.

Thanks for the help. Is the ice pretty consistent thickness on the south side or does it vary significantly?

Could people try to keep me updated on the ice out from the town access please. Looking to pull an ice castle with a truck on Xmas day. Hoping to find nothing less than 13in before we go out.
