Fellow fisherman, I am a newby to petenwell and will be trying it for the first time this weekend.I was hoping for any advice as far as where I could park my truck and trailer and drive onto the lake with my atv, I will be coming from oxford.I have also noticed that all the posts are on petenwell flowage and not petenwell lake and being new to the area I do not understand the difference between the two, all I see on the map is the lake . any advice would be much appreciated

Ice Depth: 16" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 36° - 40° F
Was out yesterday from 7-5, Monroe Center...remains a crappie fisherman's dream on tipdowns. Moved to Longview in the afternoon and caught 10 shorts on plain jig and minnow head.

Today 7-3, started in front of the Lure, ZERO! NOTHING! Moved back over South of Hall's Point and caught 5 shorts and a couple of cats. This is beginning to look like a good time to start thinking of open water fishing.

Walleye bite has been and continues to be slow.

Stay on Top!

I was out this morning for about three hours. Tried 4 different locations from 14-22 fow around timber. 22 ft. had the better bite. No crappies, 11 "shorties", 2 20 inch cat. Small orange or pink Swedish Pimple tipped with a minnow head, and they just hammered it.

FYI There is public access on the right just before the Dirty Oar. Its unimproved and little more than a canoe landing, but I use it in the winter and drive my ATV off it. Parking can be tricky after a snow as they don't plow it and there tends to be a bit of a heave one must navigate, but I've used it three times this year (2 weeks ago).

The current up there is strong and its hard to jig with a flasher as your bait drifts a lot, but there are those of us who fish up there when down south is a little slower. Can't say its a lot better than other spots, but if you are looking for something different..

Thx. Net. I'm local. I fish all the "normal spots". Just looking for new stuff. Safety First. Channel up there looks interesting. Report for 2016.....fish 2-3 days a week since we've had safe ice and have my fair share of fish. PINK is all I'll reveal!!

The Dirty Oar is a super club it was called the Hide a Away for many many years. No public access. I would stay south of the Lure for better ice conditions

Question........Navionics shows a landing at Dirty Oar. Hot Spots map or Lake Link map do not show this landing. Is there access here? Is there a fee maybe? Anyone else go off here? Safe???

one of the slowest days this year. One good thing, easy on off at 20th street near campground. All shorts on gold kantmaster with rosies, 6"-8" off the bottom. Don't know the exact water depth, (someone stole my flasher from the back of my truck)! Best catch of the day is shown, promised wife fish!!!!!!

Ice Depth: 16" Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 21° - 25° F
Was out 2/5 from 7-5, fished 22-25' of water with submerged timber scattered throughout. 16 shorts and nothing else. Tip-ups and tungsten jigs with plastic.

Drove off Petenwell County Park, 4x4, snowmobile or atv will get it done. The Lure now has an access area knocked down, but the heave to the North is hidden by the snow. Use caution when driving around and drive with caution to respect other fisherman.

I went on at the County Park on the east side today. I was in my UTV and had no problem with snow at all. There were trucks all over. I did not see anyone drive on at Monroe or the Lure. The bite was really tough. Had some on the flasher, but getting them to bite was the hard part. 4 of us drilled over 30 holes and only iced 1 "shortie", and lost one crappie in the hole.
