Little Cut Foot Sioux?

Recommended Posts

ZachFlash

We are heading to Little Cut Foot Sioux Friday morning and we are wondering two things (I'll end with the obvious):

1) Are there plowed roads on that lake? A buddy is bringing an ice house on wheels; I'm a little skeptical on mobility after reading some of the posts out here.

2) Any word on the how they are biting?

We've never been on this lake so we thought we'd give it a try.

Thanks,

Zach

I haven't fish that area this year, so I don't know how the bite's been, but I grew up just a few miles away and can tell you that Big Winnie gets the attention both from plows and fisherman, Big Cutfoot is second on that list, and by the time you get to Little Cutfoot, you are basically paving your own way. I certainly wouldn't count on it being plowed, and if you are navigating a large fish house, you may find the landing road and subsequent landing less than friendly...

At any rate, Little Cutfoot has its moments, but you generally have to pick through smaller fish to find what you are looking for. I would recommend Big Cut Foot. If the landings there are poor, you can always go out of a resort as a last ditch effort.

Good luck!

Stay away from the bridge area between big and little cutfoot. With the cold temps they have had it might be iced over but there is current through there so the ice won't be safe. That area stays open most of the winter.

The Cutfoot Inn resort is right there as well as the Mosomo landing so stay clear of that channel.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
