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

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
