I guess I would rather stay home and entertain the in-laws. tongue.gif

Probably not today ..... but was yesterday, and will be tomorrow.

I'm only going today if I need to get the kids out of the house and run off some energy grin.gif

Cars and trucks driving around on the ice too.

I stayed a bit closer to home and hit O'Dowds. I couldn't believe how many perms are out there in front of the landing...a small city with a quite few vehicles driving around.

I got off the beaten path about as far away from everyone as I could and started deep. Found very little action, so I drilled a series of holes up the break and finally found a good bunch of fish at 15'. Lot's of perch with some eyes mixed in. Nothing real big, but a few of the perch were suprisingly plump.

Got a chance to try out my new AquaView Scout II. I was impressed with how clear it was!

went to Prior yesterday afternoon with my SIL's boyfriend. Caught 8-10" crappies for about 3 hours and then they shut down, were still on the Marcum but they shut down.

12" of ice and full size trucks all over the place. Only a matter of time before prior makes the news again with trucks falling in.........

dtro, I thought about going to Odowds but figured I didn't want to walk all the way out to the deep hole. Where were you drilling holes on the break and catching walleyes..... grin.gif

I wanna get out tonight.

I was tooling around on the snowmobile last night on Prior and stopped and talked to a few people.

Let me know if anyone wants company on Prior or O'dowd today.

Went out on local drainage pond looking for some slabs, all I got was about 30 5"-8" crappies. This was Christmas Eve Morning.

Besides that, been working on my basement every night for almost 2 weeks. Got to get it done.

Good luck to anyone who goes out. cool.gif

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
