Big Thanks to Kelly P

6 posts in this topic

I would like to thank you Kelly. I believe you must have been the one that plowed the road out to my fish house on Saturday when we were out riding snowmobiles. You made it a lot easier for me, I widing it out a little more on the way out on Sunday. Hopefully that will make it easier to get back through this Friday. Thanks again!!! smile.gif

I hate to break the bad news to you but after yesterdays hard wind and the cold temps last night what was a road is now a long line of hard and deep drifts. frown.gif

Oh well, I will have to fight my way back to the house on Friday afternoon. Maybe better off to blaze a new trail. Might be less snow away from the road since it all blew into the road. Is it Friday yet? smile.gif

Forecast is calling for 42 degrees on Friday. Right through the melting snow like a hot knife and butter. smile.gif Really cross country travel isn't all that bad if a person watches out for old road or house banks.

Ye Ha!! cool.gif Should be a good weekend to be out and about chasing crappies as long as the wind doesn't blow 80mph. Going to have to go looking this weekend, they didn't cooperate very well last weekend.

Naw it's suppose to be a calm day as far as wind on Red... I think it's forecasted to only be 60 MPH out of the east - southwest. grin.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

      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.
