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

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
