Bring ADVIL!

Me and Muddy were out yesterday and the weather was cold but the fishing was red hot. Put in at Birthdale around 10am and by 10:15 we were tangled up with a PIG. After a good ten minutes of wrestling we got'em in the net. The first female of the day 28.5 incher. Not bad for Berkley Gulp! Muddy said I have to try it. So I did, and boy am I glad. Next fish around 10:45 another fat lady. This one came in a tad over 27 inches. To make long story short we ended up whit our eaters and 3 over 26. Just another day of wrist wrenching walleye action on the Rainy River.

Keep your line tight and the Gulp in your pocket.

Meatplow, Do you think Gary Yamamoto worms will work or should I stick to the Gulp? Also, should I bring my Baron so all my leech friends can fish with me or should I bring the duck boat and my dog? Ramp conditions???

I'm not meatplow obviously, but I was up there on Sunday and you could launch a large boat once they moved the ice out in the mornings. Its up to you, either boat would work, there are more rocks and hazards to hit this year with the low water possibly, and I bet your dog is a better buddy than the leech guys anyway...

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
