None better than Lake of the Woods. They have a forum on this site. Lots of good info.

Minaki Canada, I just got back from there. Alot of big fish and a lot of good sizes eater fish. There is a slot but there is no problem catching fish in it. Really affordable and a great time. smile.gif

We had a good time fishing and good experience with Ballards on LOTW. That was spring time though. My next far-north-MN trip will be to Rainy, I think. Good luck wherever.

Lac Seul if you can bear the long drive, rainy lake, LOW, would be the ones i went to. I go to rainy every spring and/or fall, and it is amazing. Probably MN's premiere walleye lake, and very scenic, if that's your thing. Better pay attention when navigating around, low water and more rocks. you could stay at Sha-Sha, Woody's, he also guides, many campsites in the park, that is what we do and highly recommend, or do a houseboat. Good Luck fishing

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
