YO GREAT OUTDOORS!!!!!

5 posts in this topic

Hey Jim,

Did you have anybody stop in for minnows this weekend and head out ice fishing??? I was just wondering how this ice is holding up?? I went to Gander this weekend and blew about $400 on a new Lowrance H20C GPS unit with the Lakemaster chip for Minnesota. I will have to drop by and let you check it out...It will be quite the gadget for hunting lakers on Burntside next year! smile.gif Anyhow, let me know how the ice is holding up...I just might go after some crappies this week if the weather holds out.

Later,

Justin

Justin,

The ice seems to be holding out, but no one is fishing. Not that I can blame them with the wind and cold weather. A person may be able to squeak out some crappie fishing on the ice for another week. I'll be at the shop from 8-1 the next few days, cleaning the tank and charcoal, preparing for a new season. We should have fresh bait in and be operating within 10 days, and continue, for the most part, until the end of the month. Will take off April 26-30th to go to the lake home and cabin show at the Mpls. Convention Center. After that, shop open and doing construction projects. Stop in whenever the truck or car is there. smile.gif

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
