Fishing 12/28 and 12/29?

4 posts in this topic

3 of us just found out we can get away to fish LOW. I'm not trying to get anyone in trouble here or ask anyone to post a link that is "unauthorized", but I'm trying to find some place to stay the evenings of 12/27 - 12/29 and fish 12/28 and 12/29. I've made a number of calls to places on the south shore today without any luck. If any of you have any ideas or can offer up any solutions, that'd be great. We would have to be set up in a rental house and transportation from shore to the house would be preferred. Thanks for your time & happy holidays.

I will be up there the same time at Riverbend. You could give them a call, the number is part of the link above. The Lake Road Lodge motel is just a short distance from the lake, also Adrians, Border View, Walleye Retreat and Wigwam are all on Wheelers Point. This is a busy time with school being in recess. You can locate the other number for resorts I listed on Resort Locator above and then click on LOW. Good luck in your search. Bill

I've fished up there quite a bit over the last 20 years, and have stayed almost everywhere. I called a number of the usual suspects over the last couple of days, but unfortunately, my wife's days off are Th thru Sunday and that's probably the worst time of year to find a spot on short notice. I was hoping I might luck into something by posting on the site. I'll keep digging...

BChris, shoot me an email. I've got a solution for you. We have every year gone up with a group of 7-10 people and rented sleeper houses. We usually reserve two houses. However, we had several people back out and now are responsible for the deposit on the other house unless someone rents it. My e mail is scottebnet@hotmail.com.

Don't want to get in trouble for putting the place of business on this site.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
