Also, can anyone give me some insider tips on splake. I can hold my own on lakers or brookies, but for some friggin reason I've never done well on splake. I've never had a splake day where I said..."that was an amazing day of fishing". Maybe I'm just going on all the off days 🤷‍♂️

I get them deadsticking with minnows, in and around 10 fow. If you can't use live bait where you are, I would try finesse baits, small spoons, weighted flies or even jigging a small inline spinner. I would think most of the same shallow water techniques that you are already using should work.

Iím heading that way to a small lake. What was thickness of the ice. Iíve still got 4 days of very cold coming so Iím guessing the lake will be ready. First time Splake fishing for me so I got no pointers for you. Lol

2.5"

Depending on when you're going it should get thicker quick the next couple days

Hey Drew not to much different from Brookies they seem to like minnows which I ve had more success on depends time of season I ll probably come up next week or so should have a few more inches of ice with some good cold weather coming good luck and be safe.

Turns out I can't get minnows yet. Next week.
But I have a bunch of frozen ones, so we'll see.

Ive read that Gold Phoebe lure tipped with half a minnow works well.
Some even say slamon roe does well also.

From what Ive read, they seem to chase thoughout the entire water column but do like to hug bottom.

Ive only ever caught one in all my years (wasnt on HW)

Best of luck !!
