Mid March trip advice

Recommended Posts

Lunker

Situation-

A couple of buddies and myself are looking to plan a mid-march trip up to LOW. We'd like to do a couple days/nights in a sleeper during the week. I am not very familiar with the area, and wading through all of the reports, ads, etc online is more frustrating than anything. Was wondering if anyone has any advice. Basically how the fishing typically is then, where should we head and maybe even who we should rent from.

Thanks for any help. aadey402@uwsp.edu is my email if you want to name an outfit to go through.

Click on the Riverbend Link on top of the Lake of the Woods forum and email them. I used them in January and am using them again in March. You might want to re evauluate using a daytime house and spend the evening in the resort. If it is only two of you going th price will be similar however it is a lot more comfortable. Lake of the Woods does not give up a lot of fish at night.

Mid to late March can be awesome on the big water. I am headedd back for the 8th year in late March and have always had great fishing. I try to make 4 trips a year and this is one of my favorites. Riverbend has been our resort of choice and we have no complaints. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Thanks for the advice and emails everybody. I was reading the regs and though I understand the different regs, I'm not familiar with the lake enough to know the different areas(I've been on the rainy but that's it). Are either Zipple or Riverbend on areas that have special regs other than the 8 eye/sauger mix?

Just the 30 to 40 inch Pike safe slot. No slot on Saugers.

19.5 to 28 Walleyes must be released. You can clean Walleyes in

the fish house to eat, but not the entire catch.

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?

      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx

      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
