LOW Ice fishing on our own

4 posts in this topic

In years past we have always stayed at one of the Lake of the Woods resorts and fished out of their houses. This year we'd like to fish on our own.

The problem I'm having is that most resorts require you to fish with them on the weekends if you want to stay there. Any suggestions on a place to stay. We'd be fishing along the south shore.

You might try Lake Road Lodge. It's a motel and they do have house rentals but don't think they exclude independents. Good luck.

I always stay at the Lake Road Lodge motel. They are located out on Wheelers Point, have fish cleaning facilities, and the prices are very reasonable.

Lake Road Lodge is a good suggestion, I stay with them each time I go up in the winter and other seasons as well. Brian and Penny are new owners as of last year. Really great people and will treat you right. Brian helped me get my house off the ice last March (8 miles out) after the weather turned warm and things were pretty ugly. This spring I stayed with them a few times and Brian was really helpfull with fishing updates. These are the kind of folks I love to support.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
