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.

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas. We also fund scout projects, playground equipment and many types of sports equipment for area teams.   For more information on the LCRA or to register for fishing, go to www.lcraonline.org

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
