A bunch of us are heading up there on the 29th and i was just wondering if anyone has any recent reports. Also wondering if need to bring sleds to get off of the trails or if truck is good enough. Any info helpful. thanks

Was there over the weekend, just fishing from a rental (me and a friend each brought our dads up, so we didn't want to mess w/ portables). Fishing was pretty slow, but we managed to catch enough for meals each night. A glow red forage minnow jig on a set-line w/ whole fat-head about 6" from bottom was the best producer, followed by just about any glow spoon for jigging (except the buck-shots, which seemed to scare more fish off than they caught). I'm sure the fishing would have been better off the roads, but with the temps and winds, I'm glad we were in a nice warm rental. As for fishing off the roads, you'll need sleds after the wind that was there over the weekend. On Sunday morning, it took 3 trucks plowing almost non-stop just to keep the road open enough to get on/off the lake. Hope this helps, and good luck up there!

Thanks for the reply. hope the fishing picks up a bit in the next 2 weeks which it should. If not we'll have to do some scouting. 14 of us coming up in portables spread out should be able to find some fish. Kind of my pre wedding fishing trip.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?
