Little Cut Foot Sioux?

Recommended Posts


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.

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.

      The way it's coming down right now.... don't look good for area lakes in foreseeable future😉 we get another 8inches and it will be snowmobile only  for a while

      Try to keep in mind that the person you're talking to on the other end has nothing to go on but your description. It is not always that easy to explain things so another person who is only hearing the verbal or written explanation can fully comprehend what is being described. For example neither I or a colleague have been able to understand what this screw is you're talking about and we are both familiar with inline reels. Sometimes a  photo can speak volumes.   What I'm saying is maybe you're not being clear enough for them to understand the actual problem. Another tid-bit that may be helpful. Try to keep your composure and contain your frustration. It's most likely a failure to communicate that is causing the problem.

      A group of us recently made it up to Flag Island Resort for 3 days of multispecies ice fishing on Lake of the Woods. The accommodations and folks who worked at the Resort were top notch! Bending over backwards to put you on fish and make your trip one to remember.   The Fishing - Day 1 it was decided to stay, somewhat, close to the Resort in the MN side of LOTW to target Walleye, Sauger and Perch due to 24+ hours of snow. We got into pretty good numbers of fish and some quality fished showed up as well! Below is a video of that action from Day 1.

      Yup, I walk from the Landing so about 4.5/5 mile trek. It's not too bad when there are snowmobile tracks.   I appreciate the offer CigarGuy. I may take you up on it some day. As I cruise through my 40s, I'm enjoying the walk and what it does to help keep me in a semi-recognizable shape! My other family members don't enjoyed the shorter walk much better.

      I left up there this morning. I haven't seen the snow so packed down from snowmobiles all the way back towards your place. Should be able to have a fairly easy walk.....however, supposed to get some snow tomorrow and chances over the next few days. Do you walk out from the landing?  If I was in there when u come, I'd give you a lift/tow on my sled.
