I am leaving saturday to head up to osakis for a week. I will be staying at head of the lakes resort. How has the fishing been? normally when we go this time of year we can catch all kinds of northerns in 6-12 feet trolling spoons? any walleyes being caught? we usually like to have a meal of fish the last day we are there just wondering how hard its going to be to get some to eat/

The walleyes haven't been too tough to find, although finding keepers has been. Haven't fished much for northerns this year so I can't comment on them. But if you're looking for a meal of fish, it shouldn't be too hard to find a mess of bluegills. Just look for all the boats in a cluster.

If you're live bait rigging, both leeches and crawlers have worked. If you like to troll crankbaits, you can generally find a couple along the weedlines.

I haven't fished for bass lately.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
