Dear Mother Nature,

Dear Mother Nature,

I would love to thank you for postponing my favorite trip home for the year. I was planning on getting done with a test in an hour and heading home for a great week of sping ice fishing. Now that you have decided to put home in a blizzard state i will be stuck out here in spearfish for at least a day or two. I am very pleased that you care about my ten hour trip and all, but i would have loved it if you could have made the trip drivable in less than 15 hrs. So, here is to you Mother Nature, i will be surfing the boards of FM until the roads clear and the driving conditions get better. Here is an idea, ill just go through ND and end up at the cabin up north, man ill show you who's boss. Wait, you covered the whole state with this darn storm of yours. For this, i thank you. Ill just continue to dream about the perch i could be pounding up north and the pannies i could be hammering in Chisago.

Thanks for the Blizzard,

Dan

Dano- there is give and take on this one... You will be thanking her once spring hits and we can use the boat landings... The lakes here are way low.. it would have been nice to spead it all out a bit, and not get it all at once.. but we could still use more...

NO MORE!!! I've shoveled my walk 8 times in the past 30 hours. I'd rather have 50 inches of rain in the spring

The first storm, over the weekend, I was in the truck 50 of 60 hours.

The second storm, I was awake in the plow truck 65 of 72 hours, from Wed. morning at 11 am until 11 am Saturday morning.

I slept for 3 hours in a bed Thursday night, from 5 pm until 8 pm, then had (6) 20 minute naps until I got home at 11 am Sat. morning.

I then slept from 12 pm Sat. afternoon until 9 am Sunday morning.

I agree, nothing like getting 3/5 of the yearly snowfall in a week and a half.

I know the contracts that were complaining about paying too much for me plowing, 2 more plowings and they'll all be dead on average for the number of times for the year.

Now that there's no snow to plow, I can't go fishing because there's too much snow on the ice...... maybe after it hits 60 on Monday, it'll be melted down.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
