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 was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
