snow on the big lake

13 posts in this topic

Anyone know how much snow they're getting on LOW? I'm heading there mid week and it'd be nice to know what we're getting in to. Thanks in advance.

I think we have had close to a foot, and it's still coming down.

When we left LOW yesterday morning at 900am it was snowing hard and continued all the way to St Cloud. We got 13" down here, I'm sure they got plenty up there as well. Glad we finally got some so the guys with the sleds can enjoy their past time as well. Bill

Was out on the lake this morning...

Cross country travel with a vehicle will be tough at best. Woke up to at least 6" this morning and that wasn't counting what we got on Saturday. I would say that it's "snowcat" only if you want to get off the main roads.

How did things go this weekend?

I was up there wed-sun. One thing to note is that it was very windy Friday and Saturday, so the snow that they did receive has drifted pretty deep in some places.

Hey Flint,

We had a the whole family up there this past weekend. Rented a cabin at Morris and fished out of our houses. Two days of East wind, so you can guess how the fishing was. The kids got to catch some fish, and had the Kitty Cat up there for them to ride around on. Dad and Casey went in shallow one night but it was slow there too. Lots of snow now, so getting around with a vehicle will be tough.

Was fishing on one of the reefs about a week ago and did really good. I'm really liking those rocks....

Any plans on coming up? How about Paul?

Later,

Ya-

Planning on coming up this weekend. Paul should be there also if he don't have jury duty. Some of Hammer brothers are coming I guess. But I plan to hit it hard and sled some place. Reefs you say? Shallow bite on Zippel shut off yet? That was the plan is to hit that in the morn then head it north to reef hoop. Let me know if that's a good one or not?

Paul and LJ are here helping me put liquid kit on the planter. Lots of dud light last night!

Take care,

That's what I would do.

Watch the weather, Friday is supposed to be nasty then settling down for the weekend.

Give me a call if you get a chance.

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
