    Would be better if we had a little more details. But if fishing on ice, try deadsticking a chub on a tip up. If open water try larger lures along weeds in 6-8 feet of water.

    If ice fishing, In know we hang trout from tip ups around deep to shallow water transitions like sunken islands or where a channel meets a cove or bay. As far as the trout you can either catch them from the lakes the recieve a winter stocking, but this limits you to only three baits in your possesion or you can buy them from a state nursury this lets you fish with up to five plus having more bait if needed, as long as you have proof of purchase proving that you bought the trout.:wink:

    i like throwing Believers crankbaits or big bucktails and spinner baits worked slow around current edges or seams. if you can get a sunny day and find sand or rock in slower water your in buisness as these areas will hold the heat of the sun and be a little warmer. the baitfish come in and the musky aren't far away. they should be getting ready here soon to put the feed bag on to fatten up for the spawn.
