I didn't know it at the time but when you guys were pulling out I passed by your house with the sled, then Dad told me who you were but you were on your way to Birch at that point otherwise I would have stopped by, figured maybe you would be back on Saturday but you didn't show.

How long had you guys been up? I think Dad had said you guys did well too.

Fishing was good this past weekend, Perch were definetly on the bite ( nice sized Perch too ) mix in a few Walleye and Saugers and there wasn't hardly a dull moment. Pike were a little slower but I think they have plenty to feed on judging from the amount of small Walleye and Perch we caught.

7 of us were up there fishing out of 2 perm. houses and 1 portable and brought home plenty of fish.

Couldn't really put the fish on a definet lure or bait they liked, caught some of Glo / Pink Go Devils, Buckshots Rattle Spoons, Blue / Pink Fireball leadheads, Gold Punkin' jigs and some others I didn't know what they were called. Most of the spoons I used, I took the treble hook off and put on a dropper hook instead that seemed to help. We went thru alot of bait for the weekend both frozen and live, seemed like live bait was starting to win out by Sunday.

If I see you guys at the shack next time, I'll stop by and get a report!

Bow, any new reports? Doesn't look like I will make it up there until the 1st or 2nd week in March. If you go, throw me a report every once in a while, I'll check in when I have access.

Minneman,

Couple weeks ago you could get around, snow was hard, you might run into a drift or 2 that might stop you but usually you could backup and hit it again and get thru. You could drive out from the Marina or Birch Pt. Might want to give the Marina a call and get the latest though.

Not sure what has happend since the big winds have gone thru. Snowmobile will be faster to get around but it was rough too.

Good luck fishing!

Mike

Mike I thought you were going west? Wouldn’t it be better to keep grin.gifon fishing instead of riding a snowmobile? crazy.gif

Sounds like more snow on the way again. Hopefully the yard won’t fill in to bad. It’s not fun cleaning the yard when it’s so miserable out. cry.gif

Fish,

Are you catching up?

We head out Friday........ the fish will still be there when I get back anyway.

When a guy is looking at snow like this, we MUST travel!

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
