FM Members get together at Camp Manitou on Manitou Lake for Winter Lake Trout

5 posts in this topic

We are having a FM members get together at Camp Manitou (1 hr. north of I. Falls) on the weekends of Feb. 23rd and March 8th. We will be fishing mainly lake trout on Lower Manitou Lake, Dogfly Lake, and Mister Lake.

The resort is located 1/2 way between dryden and fort frances, ont. It is a summer island resort, located 6 miles from our winter parking lot, so you will need a snowmobile or 4 wheeler to get to the camp and out fishing. Transportation can be arranged if needed.

You can arrive on either thursday or friday and depart on either sunday or monday, you can stay as long as you want.

We can only take 18 people at a time so pick out which weekend works for you and call us to get on the reservation list, we are booking on a first come first serve basis.

If you have any questions, call the number below, e-mail, or reply to this post.

See you on the ice,

Matt

HI FISKYKNUT,

I ENJOY READING YOUR POSTS ON THE LOW SITE, ONE OF THOSE WITH GOOD HONEST INFO.

YES, WE COULD PUT SOMETHING TOGETHER. AS OF RIGHT NOW, EVERYTHING IS STILL 4 WHEELERS OR SLEDS AS OUR ICE IS NOT SAFE FOR VEHICLES. BEING A MUCH DIFFERENT FISHERY THEN LOW, WE HAVE 1,500 ISLANDS, LOTS OF CURRENT, SO OUR ICE TAKES LONGER THEN LOW TO GET DRIVABLE., SO MAYBE YOU WERE THINKING SLEDS, OR WERE YOU THINKING BY VEHICLE., AND WERE THINKING OF A DAY TRIP OR A OVERNIGHTER., ALSO MAYBE YOU WANT TO DO A LITTLE TRADEOFF, YOU SHOW ME LOW (I HAVE FISHED IT ALOT, BUT NOT WITH SOMEONE WHO KNOWS LIKE THEIR BACKYARD), THEN I WILL SHOW YOU RAINY.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
