Yepper good old gold is a staple for sure thru the seasons on this big pond. Walleyeman I'm gonna bump a post of mine from 5 years back that you and others who have'nt expierienced the LOTW may find useful. A generalized babble in regards to winter fishing up this way which still has some relevance. Give it a read and then fire away with some specifics if you'd like. We have a whole lot of well versed LOTW winter fisherman on board here that have the gift of gab.....Sometimes anyways!

Fisky: Even those of us who have been there just a couple of times still benefit from your wisdom and insight, thanks for bringing it back up. Lakes were frozen solid today from Floodwood to St Cloud. Not walkable ice for sure but maybe there's hope. As you mentioned once it rears up, settle in for a long winters nap. Have a great Turkey Day. Bill

      Oh man, I forgot about the South Switch. I haven't been there in close to fifteen years. I doubt that it's changed.....maybe I'll head there tomorrow night!

      Anyone been out lately? I normally wait until the leaves start dropping but am getting the itch to get out pretty bad.

      Prices a little high there too....   Come on down to the switch or the crescent.  

      Didn't Bayview try the upscale dining thing a few years ago?

      Where are all the Duck reports from the almighty Pelican? 

      Did all this rain fill the lake back up?  I haven't driven by at all. 

      I bet the crappies and gills are growing nicely.   Soon enough.

      Yep it is the 3 S's - I just don't think a lot of people are going to be grouse hunting with a shovel - but not a bad idea.

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400. 

      Thanks for the Update, I think that I did see less birds out on Edwards as well later this summer. Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :)
