Hey All!

Iím going to be heading up north this weekend with the gf to arrowhead for the skating trail. Iíve convinced her to spend a day on Rosseau.

Looking for tips and advice on the lake. I know there are pike and lakers Andrew I believe whites. Was thinking of heading out in skeleton bay but wondering if anyone could suggest FOW or other areas I should take into consideration.

I have Vibratos , white tubes and swim baits, lipsless and some predator rigs for the pike. Any and all advice is appreciate also if someone knows of a lake thatís better within an hour of Huntsville I would greatly appreciate the advice and help.

Thanks everyone TIGHT LINES

Given that the fish are pretty small, what size tubes do you use? I'm surprised---I assumed you used minnows. i.e that you, in addition to being the Master Bobber, were also a Master Baiter!!

It's not the size. It's how you use it!

Easy tip. Fish with Db! You will catch em, and have many laughs along the way! Seriously though. 1-2Ē tubes work well. And a graph or flasher to let u know they are around.

Dave.

Lots of big lakers there, you just have to fish big laker spots.

If fishing Skeleton Bay don't venture on the east side from parking lot, there's a creek and current there, looks good but thin ice. Rest of bay is good to go, drilled 8" of black ice in the bay today.

Good luck.

Go big or go home!!

A 44" laker came from the bay a few years ago, it's a thing of beauty! Now has a nice home on a friends wall.
