gophers 'n' eyes

We will be arriving in the Winni area early on Friday morning and plan to fish all day on Fri, Sat, and early on Sunday morning. I've been watching the forum for almost a month now in anticipation and it seems the reports have really slowed down (I'm really hoping this is because the fish are biting and they are trying to keep it quiet wink.gif) With the warm weather coming this weekend I hope the perch bite turns on. I don't need to hear any spots or lures or anything, pretty much know what I'm going to be doing, but it's always nice to sit here at work and check reports and see that the bite is on!! Good luck to all.

p.s. We are staying at the hotel in Deer River and plan on hitting up the Wagon Wheel while we are up there for the weekend if anyone's going out in that area, we'll be there.

Are you staying at bahr's or the other hotel (the one I wish I would've stayed at)?...be sure to try the "big'un" at the outpost bar & grill.

We are staying at the newer hotel, I forgot the name of it but I know it has a hot tub and a pool and a heated fish house grin.gif Just hope the fish are biting because we are only bringing food to grill out during the day and planning on catching our dinner! However, if we must eat out I will have to give your recommendation a try. I'm really hoping the wagon wheel has some karaoke going on Friday and Sat night! Any word on if people are catching some perch?!

$40 a night at bahr's. I believe FSN was 1 of only about 5 channels that worked.

I believe where we are at is 79 bucks a night for Two queen beds, and they pack you a lunch and everything for during the day. Not to mention there is nothing better than having a few beers in the hot tub after a long day of fishing! (and the bar is within walking distance)

I would've totally spent the extra money to NOT be at bahr's! Luckily the fishing was good so we weren't there much. However, if you like a place with a 1920's feel, then bahr's is your place.

I've stayed at Bahr's once about 5-6 years ago. It felt like something staight out of the twilight zone. There's better places that's for sure.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
