I think that whenever you are at Lake of the Woods and you can use a snowmobile, use it!!!! This early in the year, you never know where you are going to hit a breaker that might be open. It is a lot more difficult/daring to use a 4 wheeler when crossing the breakers. We have been able to get to a lot of places people couldn't because we had a snowmobile!!

A wheeler is fine, but I'd recommend a snowmobile if you have one.

We didn't get too stuck, but we got bogged down a bit with the wheeler pulling a portable.

Like the others have said. There is enough for sleds. I used mine last weekend. But my buddy was using my 4 wheeler too.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
