April 11 Lake of the Woods report

2 posts in this topic

People still out fishing on the ice when they can find a way to get on top of it. I'm not going anymore.

Pike are running the ditches like crazy. I saw four of them in the ditch near my house and this is about 3 miles from the water. Ditches don't have that much water in them either.

However, it rained like mad yesterday and is supposed to rain the next couple days which should help them.

Also went wheeling in the forestry on Saturday. You'll want to stay to the main roads, nearly every side road is under water right now as the frost comes out. Many main roads are closed to traffic over 1,000 pounds, so ATV only.

Ride safe and tread light so we can ride again tomorrow.

See ya

Anthony,

I haven't been up to LOTW now in a while now, and probably won't be back until it freezes over again, but I sure appreciate the daily updates on the conditions there...

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
