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

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
