not sure i can give you directions, but i have read some good posts about the action on the wahpeton canals just off of emerson bay on west okoboji. maybe there is a map you can find. the water is supposed to be very clear, lots of good gills and crappies. a few bass here and there. most liekly won't see a perch. those canals do seem to keep you out of the wind if you're fishing outside. good luck, let us know how ya did either way. cool.gif

i was just on another site, looks like the traditional spots are a little slow. you might have to think outside the box. but then again you are fishing on a frozen lake, isn't that a little off to start with cool.gif i have a soft spot for anglers bay on spirit. that was my intro to ice fishing. wow what a day jumbo perch for hours, crystal clear waters, lots of fun. i haven't been the same since, and that was 15 years ago.

"i haven't been the same since, and that was 15 years ago."

that would be understandable, considering where you moved to! grin.gif

the only tip i'll offer is to stay moble til you find fish.

Went to west okogoji this afternoon. Nothing bitting, went to Emersons bay and eagle point? There were plenty of fish that we could see down the hole (mostly big perch but some sun fish and one walleye and one musky). Wow that is some clear water. Tried about everything I had as far as jigs and tried crappie minnows and wax worms but couldn't get them to bite. We drove my truck out there and there was about 16" of ice in the bay and only 12" off the point where we were. No fish but still fun.

when mine get to college, we plan to move back to midwest. they are in the 8th grade now. they are very mature one min then completely helpless the next. i guess that is typical 14 year old.

i beleive i saw the okoboji report on a site whose name is synonomous with a homemade building that one would ice fish from. i also post on an Iowa site that is for the Outdoors.

hey del, my folks are from Janesville, if i'm ever visiting my grandma we'll have to get together and fish or golf cool.gif
