Fishing Report out of McQuoid's Resort

1 post in this topic

Hello Everyone,

Went up with a group December 14 and 15 and we rented an 8 holer out of Angler's Paradise. The houses are positioned about 150 yds (?) off shore in about 12" of ice. You cannot drive out yet, but the staff was very willing to pick us up and drop us off at the fishhouse or our truck on shore. We very much appreciated that and their willingness to serve was very appreciated. I especially liked Darrell(?).

The perch were everywhere...but you really had to work hard to get the keepers. We come off the lake with about 13 nice ones that we saved for the fryer. What payed off for us is 1) small white jig with minnow 2) a green #6 ratso tipped with a grub, or 3) a clown colored Fiskas tipped with a grub or spikes.

One of our party caught a nice 5 lb northern with his jig and minnow, and we spotted exactly two walleyes with our cameras.

I cannot emphasis how nice the fishhouse was and it was kept up very well. The heater worked great, and there was plenty of room for us three guys in the 8 holer we were in.

Good luck!

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.
