Hey Kelly I was up on monday and went on from
Benz wasnt sure about the pressure ridge where I would like to fish is closer to W.W
than Benz but Im wondering if I can go across ridge with a six wheeler & trailer
or not or if I even need to go out that far
its three miles from Benz and it will be dark coming off lake and I'm a little
nervous about the ice as I'll probably have
the little woman and my nephew along whats
your best advice? probably fri evening
or maybe sat Thanx for info and the great job
you & the other resorts have done this
winter its been a blast havent gotten to
meet any of the regulars on the forum yet
but maybe soft water or next winter
good luck & be safe! RR

Redrider,

Why not just access the lake from WestWinds? That way you don't have to worry about crossing the ridge and you only have to go out about a mile or so.

Well I will if you all think its just as
good over there I just had found my hotspot to be on the other side of the ridge from W.W
is all I guess I had heard that they were doing real good closer to shore so maybe I'll
just give that a try is it real busy or is
there plenty of room where they are getting action? Thanks RR

just a thought. might want to weugh "hotspot" vs. safety, when bringing loved ones or friends on the ice.

redrider,
You will not get an ATV across the ridge with out pontoons it's wide and open.
Right now the hot spot seems to be all over the lake. There is no need to even get close to the ridge. We looked for a place to cross even in 3 feet of water but found nothing we felt safe with for the public. Also we decided that there was no need to cross it as the fish seem to be spread all over in the 10 to 12 foot range. Last night I just went about 1/2 mile north of any one else in 11 feet and did fine.
Messing with the ridge or tearing around the lake in the dark blindly is not worth it.
Do not follow weeks old GPS lines like the one guy did into the ridge two years ago. GPS's have no commen sense and cann't tell water from ice.

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first. 
    • IceHawk
      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?

      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Fishing as Good Friday night then Saturday not so much. Pictures from Friday, none from Saturday because everyone knows what one 5” perch looks like.

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks
    • Borch
      Looking forward to it.  Here are some more prizes.
