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 wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
