Can anyone help me out?

5 posts in this topic

Ill be heading up feb 8th through the 10th and havent been to lake of the woods since new years of 2000 and was wondering if anyone could point me in a general direction to where i could find some walleyes and sauger. I know 30-32 feet of water would be the best bet. would you recommend farther out. My boss was 9 miles out and got quite a few walleyes and sauger. Thanks for any help at all.

Without knowing the area you are fising it is tougher to give

you much info but the deeper water has been pretty good. The

further you can get away from everyone else the better. Try to

find someplace quiet.

Have fun and good luck

Yes Zippel is great and they have a lot of there houses out off Hot Spot road to the East. You could try that. The word was they were doing great.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
