Lots of Fishermen

Good weather and good fishing make for lots of fishermen and we certainly have them. I haven’t been to the lake, being content to fish the river near town, but from what I understand, it’s difficult to find a place to park out in the Graceton Beach and Morris Point areas. Most travel on the lake is by ATV’s and small vehicles, so the large vehicles  are parked where they can find a spot near shore. I understand that the lake has 12″ to 13″ of ice and no snow. River fishing is good if you are willing to be satisfied with an early morning or a late evening bite that could last up to an hour. A person will probably catch some little walleyes, a nice slot fish and you might get a couple 15″ to 17″ to take home. I’ve caught a number of slot fish in the 22″-23″ range and I’ve heard of a couple up to 28″.  The week between Christmas and New Years is generally the best week of the winter season.
