Was headed down 14 the other day and noticed a small crowd and some portables out there - which I hadn't seen in previous years.

Is this lake still private access that anyone knows of?

You can pay to get on it I think its up to $10 heard rumors of $20. Aside from some ok pike the fishing isnt much better than some of the surrounding lakes.

I got a buddy that is out there right now, been out there for awhile today.

I guess they have gotten a few sunfish and a couple of crappies, and a bunch of bullheads.

Nothing to brag about I guess, but yes $10 to get on.

From the way it sounds it isn't worth the $10.

Been out there this year a couple times. Never seen a bullhead caught on the lake.

Been getting sunnies and crappies with very few keepers. The lake is weedy as ever but the water seems clear.

Poor pike fishing both trips.

For $20 both trips could have had a lot more to show for on the area lakes.

It is $10.00 per carload.

Went out there 3 weeks ago and just caught dinky sunnies.

You are better off going somewhere else.

You got that right!

BTW,

Did catch a huge bullhead out there last week. That day I was the only vehicle on the lake.

Yep, I had a buddy that knew some people that lived on the lake. He took me out a couple times before it was opened up to the public, you could barely keep the pound to nearly two pound Sunfish off your line.

First couple years of Ice fishing on it after it was opened up were awesome also, but it did not take long for it to go downhill.

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!

      We hunt 108 and are overrun by wolves. You can count the number of deer tracks up there. Same thing to the west of us. Once they deplete the deer enough they either starve or move on. Problem is if they have a neighboring pack the fight is on and they have nowhere to go. So we go through these endless cycles between having deer or having wolves. Biologists have determined a wolf can eat 25 deer a year!
