It might be tough to find a room or cabin this close to the weekend, but there are a few around. I am going up and staying at Lake Road Lodge. It is a pretty cheap way to go up there, we will be there Friday night and Saturday night and heading back Sunday morning to hit a couple little lakes on the way back. Black F-150. If you see us in the HSO or Ice Leaders hats, say hello. We are planning to fish out off of Adrians road in 28-34 fow depending on the reports we hear from locals upon arrival.

Nope, wasn't at cool cats, I was harvesting parts for a car from my dad's place. I did stop and fish with my buddy and my son on the way to my dad's though. I really wanted to make it, but couldn't. We put on the baby fmer get together a week before cool cats.

mnhunter, the hats are pretty sweet.

polarsusd81, let us know how you do... I make my way up to Adrians to hit it hard with my portable next Thursday - Monday. I am hoping the progression back to the river is on and I don't have to really head too far out.

Muc, here is my report.

We fished in 25-26 fow from the top of the ice from 11 am to 7 pm Friday and 6:30 am to 7:30 pm on Saturday.

Friday was really slow from 11 to 2:30. At 2:30 the fish moved in and we got sauger after sauger after sauger, and then a lone walter, and more sauger. We ended up with 4 walleye and 6 sauger we kept on Friday. They were going on pink teardrop jigs for the majority of the fish that day.

Saturday we got out early, but the barometer fell hard over night and the wind was howling. The morning bite was a lot slower than our neighbors had Friday morning. The fish moved through all day, but were loners. Not much for schooling, until the afternoon. Then the saugers came in heavy again, and I caught a ton on a buckshot rattle spoon tipped with a shiner head. I caught all but two that came through on the vex. Probably 20-25 from 3-6. Most were small, but there were a couple 13s that came through.

Overall, it was a great time and we will do the same setup next year. I might try to post up a couple pics tomorrow.

We were fishing just past Pine Island in 25 ish fow. If you haven't been up there before, you are in for a treat. We drove out on Adrian's Road and just followed that up to the food shack on the ice and hung a right. Pretty much all along that area from 22 down to 27 fow were producing while we were up there. If the weather stays consistant, you will find plenty of fish this weekend. Let us know how you did when you get back.

If you don't get on them one day, the next day, it might not be a bad idea to head out a little deeper. Some of the guys in our group also went out to 33 fow and did pretty well in the morning. They got into a lot more sauger in the morning than we did, but with as cold as it was, we didn't feel it was worth the hassle to go out and set up the porty when we had a rented day house warm and waiting for us. We caught nothing but eyes early in the morning in our house up there.

Yeah LOW is always a blast. I got a 30 incher on my wall from last year over off gull rock. I'm hoping I don't get a bigger one. They're spendy.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      54 degrees saturday in lakes NE of metro.

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
