Anyone have any advise on fishing....

Recommended Posts

...Whitefish lake in Sawyer county, WI? My friend has a cabin there. This summer, for the first time in the last 10 years, we consistantly caught walleyes. This is a stange lake. The average depth is probably 30' - 40', with the deepest being 105'. We have fished it many times in January and have never caught a single fish. Should a guy fish the same as the summer spots? Help if you can. I know the fish are there.

I used to call it Lake No-fish!

I've fished Whitefish for the last 10 years too. It holds big fish in most species- walleye, crappie, northern, muskie, etc. It is also one of the most challenging lakes I've ever fished because it's so deep, essentially a big 100 foot deep trench. My theory is that the big fish follow the schools of whitefish out deep and pay little head to structure (making for some tough fishing indeed). Rocky shorelines and points are good in the summer for walleye, but I've caught them everywhere from three feet to 45 feet deep in the winter. My advice: drill a million holes and try the weedier areas. If that doesn't work, pack it up and head for pizza and beer at the Beachmoor.

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
