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..

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
