Sno-Cat fishin'

Recommended Posts

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

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
