First snow

6 posts in this topic

Well, it's been a while since someone has posted in here so I thought I'd get something started.

First of all, I'd like to know when most people think the local lakes will be covered in ice? Whomever is closest will get.......absolutely nothing but an atta boy and several accusations of being supernatural.

Second, I'd like to know where most are planning on ice fishing this year?

Keep your stick on the ice!!!

Well, I'll be optimistic, I'll say early November smile.gif just got a feelin' that its going to be a good ol' winter this year. Should be able to cross the ponds during deer hunting this year.

Most of the fishin' will be done on Lake of the Woods again this winter.

Funny, but i've lived in this state for most of my life and I have yet to see Lake of The Woods. Seems most like to fish up there and I hear stories of shanty's that are better than some residences but i'll have to get up there and see it for myself perhaps this year. Where do you guys fish up on LOW?

Pretty much the way it went for me too, born and rasied here, didn't know a lick about L.O.W. until '89, after the first outing, I was hooked.

Now L.O.W. is just a day trip many times a year, gets to be alot of driving but usually it is worth every minute.

We go to Buffalo Bay, don't see alot of the fancy shacks like you do on other parts of the lake but from what I hear, they do exist.

Pine Island, Long Point, and Rocky Point are all good places to try.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
