New Venture as the Lake of the Woods Outdoorsman

Recommended Posts

LOTW_Outdoorsman

Thank you to everyone that followed the Lake of the Woods Fishing Report Videos that I had the pleasure of putting together for the Wigwam Resort over the past few years. With that said, I am no longer with the Wigwam and have started the next chapter of my life as the Lake of the Woods Outdoorsman.

I will be guiding on Lake of the Woods (Minnesota and Ont. Canada) as the Lake of the Woods Outdoorsman, and will continue giving each member of the Fishing Minnesota family the latest and greatest up to date fishing and hunting information from my extraordinary back yard, Lake of the Woods County. Special thank you must go to Rick and Joe for all the support on this new venture. To find out more about the Lake of the Woods Outdoorsman, please go to www.lakeofthewoodsoutdoorsman.com. The site is still under construction, but more and more will be added by the day.

Thank you all for allowing me the opportunity to share all my wonderful adventures! Let the journey begin, and hopefully I will have the opportunity to share the next adventure with you by my side.

As always, Happy Fishing and God Bless

Lake of the Woods Outdoorsman...Jean-Paul Tessier

JP.

I'm sorry to hear things didn't pan out with the Wigwam. You've been enormously beneficial to their operation, and a great voice for Lake of the Woods tourism, and resorts all around the lake.

Whatever your endeavors, I'm certain you will be a great success. You bring a fresh enthusiasm, not to mention years of experience to every "Outdoorsman" out there, and for that we thank you!

Thanks again for all the great video footage, and open willingness to share your tips and successes with everyone. Wigwam has no idea what they're losing.

Also a huge thank you for incorporating an open and bold Christian faith-based message in what you're doing! You are a great example of a modern day disciple of Jesus - which is what He wants us all to be.

Nothing but the best of luck to you, and I look forward to your next chapter of reports from Lake of the Woods.

May God's rich blessings be with you.

Sam smile

JP Good luck! Thanks to you I loaded up on pink charmers and schooled my buddies this winter while they sat there with dumb looks on their faces.

It was always fun to watch your vids. I really liked the one where you skated to the house! That doesnt happen often!

Hey JP, read your story on your new website and really appreciate what you have and are doing. Seeing that my son is a Marine and I love to fish up there on LOW, we'll be in touch. Keep in the book and have a great summer.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.
    • whateverisbiting
      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
