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.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
