Yeah I would bring a wheeler. You still have to be careful of those slush pockets. Better have a friend if you get stuck otherwise your screwed. Bite 4 eyes is about 1 hour dusk and dawn. Check 4 perch in the flats or in front of park out from flagpole. Good luck and have fun. P.S. Pout should start biting now.

It is awfully deep snow for the wheeler. If you can stay on packed snow from the sleds you're fine. If you are bringing an ATv you better have V-Bar tire chains. And there are a cou8ple of roads out off of pine so you can drive your truck. If you are going exploring though I would highly reccomend a snowmobile.

With chains you might be okay in some spots but be prepared for some slow going and a sore back from shoveling.

Willow were you out from erickson landing? I saw a 6-wheeler out there sunday afternoon and they looked to be having a heck of a time. Its real mess out there for anything with wheels on it. I would hope that this cold snap would lock things up but I don't think it will. The isnsulation value of all that snow is pretty impressive with the cold we have been having up here.

Thanks for the Report. I will probably bring it up and stay pretty close to road and hard pack.

Fishing should be fun, not work, I do that all week...

      I think there should be a catch and release state record category for EVERY fish.  Not just these larger ones.  Not everyone is interested in killing a fish that could potentially be a stated record.  I understand that they're trying to protect these larger species of fish but there should be a C & R option for all of them, not just some of them.   Way to go on the muskie.

      Got out Saturday and tried for some eyes and didn't find a one...barely graphed a fish in many areas!  We switched it up and went crappie fishing and found a school in deep water and caught enough for a meal.  We were using small jigging raps.  Great bait when trying to stay vertical in deeper water with a slight wind.  Hope to get out another time or 2 but we will see what ma nature has to say about that...Good Luck- Ozzie

      We are actually in the city of Monticello.  We had to get a building permit for the shooting shelters and MN DNR grant.  As part of the building permit process the city asked us to do some sound testing.  Interestingly, we are quieter then the city standards.The motorcycles and pickups with big tires were quite a bit louder then our shooting tests.  We also added sound deadening material to the ceilings of our shelters.  It helps big time.  Our club has been there since 1946 and predates any housing in the area.  MN ranges are protected when you are in compliance, and we are.  More improvements to come to our range soon.  Great place, great people.

      On the south end...  A fantastic week of fall walleye fishing.  Walleyes in good numbers across the south shore of Lake of the Woods.  Most popular depths are 14 - 24'.  Anchoring up with a jig with frozen shiner is the ticket.  Jig colors in gold, pink, glow, orange or a combo of these colors working well.  Strong numbers of walleyes and saugers being caught.  Jumbo perch and pike in the mix.  Walleyes also being caught around Knight and Bridges islands and structure off of Long Point and Rocky Point. On the Rainy River...   Strong reports this past week and weekend of good numbers of walleyes along with some big walleyes taken.  Fish in spots with current breaks from mouth of river to Birchdale.  There is still a strong current and fish are congregating in areas with current breaks, often closer to shore, behind points or holes in river.  7-16' a good start depending upon the spot.  Very good reports this week.  Have jigs up to 1.5 oz if in the main channel, lighter jigs in slack water.  Many personal best walleyes and sturgeon this week. Up at the NW Angle...  Walleyes in traditional fall spots.  Neck down areas, points and mouths of bays continue to hold good fish.  Jigging continues to be the go to method.  Big black crappie and jumbo perch bite happening also.  Traditional fall muskie bite continues strong, lots of fish boated.

      Anyone ever find one that works? My truck topper light wiring got corroded from the salt spray coming in during the winter.
