Hello fellow ice craziesss!!!

First time ice fishing lake Rousseau. Hoping someone can tell me what I can expect to see and any hints to fishing this lake. I think we will be in 30 feet of water and will be mainly after the lakers. Not exactly sure what lures I should be using.

Also, any idea on the lakes water clarity?

Thanks in advance

We were using minnows but heard that small white tubes were also working. Rosseau lakers are on the small side and feeding on small forage fish so use smaller presentations.

What those two said above. I find they are closer to bottom on this lake. Keep the bait moving and have a dead stick as well. Some times they like the rise fall, sometimes they just like no movement. White and chartreuse are the go to colours. They tend to be small but they taste great.

Williams half/half hammered. Deeper the better. 30fow you should get lots, but small.
If deeper then 60 use big bait.

You have the right idea. The deeper you can deadstick is great, have one rod from group deepest you have access to.
