We have returned... one word..AWESOME!

fishing was great, lots of 17's-18's and a few "big" ones.

the accomadations are really nice and the staff helpfull

we caught fish just about everywhere we went, but you got to watch for rocks since the water is low, just a couple of slight damage to skags, but not bad.

I was up there the first week of August. Just like you alot of 17-20 inch fish.Some big northerns also. That logging road can be a real treat, only one flat going in and none coming out luckily. We rough it, we camp, but have talked more about staying at the lodge as we are all getting older.

We're planning the last week of September. Was wondering if it's worthwhile to bring a canoe? Also, is it as dry as N. Minnesota, we were hoping to do some shore lunches. Hoping to get my daughter into a 15lb Northern, or are we talking a lot of 5-10 pounders? Any info (or advice) would be appreciated.

Thanks

Its a big lake,,I'm not a fan of canoe's. we were mainley fishing up the lake a ways. make sure you bring everything you may need as there is no place to get anything unless you want to go back down the road from !@#@!#. the reef rihgt up form the resort was a good spot when the wind died down. there was guys fishing the shore right across from the resort and were doing pretty good, just ask around, you will get all the info you want.

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
