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

      Planning on bringing out the new boat this weekend, I will do my best at the launch to speed up process, but hopefully some slack is cut on account it is a new boat..brand new boat.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.
