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

      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.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
