Heading up jan. 14-17 wondering where to go to catch big fish.

Recommended Posts

Im taking the wheelhouse up and have only fished there once in portables. I have fished whiskey jack before and five mile but no big fish. wondering where to go to have a good chance for big walleye in the day and pout at night. We are not looking at catching a 100 little fish but nice fish. Considering arnesons and long point. Can you get off the main road with a truck and 19' ice castle. Should we fish reefs or mud flats?

Thanks for the reports.

You will catch those little guys where ever you go. The edges

of reefs might be what you are looking for. Getting around

off the road seems to be possible right now even pulling a

wheel house. Important to be off by your self so keep that in

mind when you set up.

We were up at Zippel and my husband got a 22 1/2" and a 29" this past Tuesday and Wed. So you may want to try there. They do have a lot of plowed roads and keep them up, and yes you can get off the roads with out to much trouble.

Curt by the way is there a way I can get ahold of rcatcherman, I would like to know the model of the digtal Grundig he got. They have a lot of them

Thanks

Right now I would go to zipple, an fish shallow in the morning deep in the daytime an shallow again in the evening, babbler has a road now but that is gonna have a ton of traffic an the deep snow will push people close together an cause alot of comotion so being by youself might be hard, once a trail is made they will come. lots of shoreline on zipple to be by yourself, morning seems to be te better an by morning I mean fishing by 8. good luck. boar

fishing lady I sent you an e-mail today on the radio. It is a Grundig G8 TravelerII Digital. It has all the bells and whistles and does have Great Reception of all kinds of stations. Last time up even listened to roseau play Bemidji or Grand rapids in high school hockey. All in all a Great buy for Lake of the Woods Radio Reception..

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
