Sno-Cat fishin'

3 posts in this topic

No its not the species its the method (Sno-Cat fishin')

Groomed trails to every where opens up the legendary far off

spots like Garden Island, Stoney, Knight, Bridges and more.

A bucket full of big Perch and another full of Walleyes and

Saugers were enough to make me pack up and return for another

go as soon as possible.

The fishing is staying pretty good along Pine, Morris, Zipple

so if you want to stay close its not a problem to catch

some decent fish. When you are way out there with just your

little group you feel like you are getting in on some fish that

havent been picked through yet. We didnt get any monsters but

the fish were real nice.

If you get tired of the same old same old in February or March

pull the portables out on the beautiful groomed trails and

fish all by your lonesome for a day. A couple of things to

remember, bring 2 of everything, make sure you have a couple

of snowmobiles and a tow strap...

Good Luck and have fun

Curt, Larry and I were just on one of these trips. Left his house over by Baudette at 6:30am and were fishing the shoals off Garden by 8 am. The trails like you said are great. I like to refer them to super highways. Anyway, not many people showed up there on this day. Fri the 8th. Fishing was very good. Great limit of walleye's saugers, and a few perch for extra fun. We do this this a couple times a year, and as always the trip is the same. SUPER!!! See ya in the fishing league again this summer?

The weather turned nasty on us this weekend or we would have

been back. I was hot to get there again too.

It will just get better until the ice goes away.

Lake of the Woods has soooooooo many places and ways to fish.

After a couple months of fishing the shoreline it's fun to pack

up and head for somewhere the fish havent been pounded on every

day. The good resorts keep moving their houses to different

depths and different areas and I like to do that too. With

a Bear Cat, an Otter and these groomed trails you can do the

same thing only you can really get off somewhere quiet.

Good Luck in Walleye League

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
