Zachd had it right about rainbows. If you fishing for rainbows, your best bet is the shallows. I fish in less than 10 feet most of the time. I have caught them in deep water but they are in the top 10 feet under the ice and often just under the ice. Brook trout and splake are also found in the shallows during hard water which has been my experience in the Arrowhead reagion of stream trout lakes.

I like using small spoons with minnow heads, panfish jigs with euro larva or waxies, or sometimes just a small hook with just one waxie when things are slow. Minnows are not allowed in designated trout waters and you do need a trout stamp to fish these lakes. Non designated trout lakes allow the use of live bait and a trout stamp is needed in order to keep trout. I fish Grindstone a lot and that is a non designated trout lake. I also have caught brown trout in the shallower water as well. I've caught my biggest while using a tip up with a shiner [non designated trout lake]. good luck.

Not sure where you got that info? Just checked the DNR website and it says Allen and Pleasant are the only lakes closed in Crow Wing County.


After further review I didn't read it right and you are correct


You had me worried as I will be down there this weekend chasing them on the pits, had to look it up!!


I will try to maybe make a go at it this weekend also
