Lake of the Woods - Lake Trout


Recommended Posts

We got out today to do a little LAKE TROUT fishing. We took sleds from the resort in Morson up to White Fish Bay. There was some slush in White fish , Nothing to worry about. Caught a few and lost more the a few. Used a white tube and jig, Here is a couple pics from today. If a trip like this sounds like something you would like to do , We can make it happen.

Cheers

Rob

We did a little LAKE TROUT fishing yesterday, On the way out in the morning it had frozen over the slush holes so travel was great. On the way in, if you were pulling anything you had to be VERY careful to stay on old trails. I got a video (not the best one I've taken) but shows how long a fight these LAKERS put up.

We also have a TRUE spring special on Cabin Rentals that runs till June 21. Check out our website for more details.

Enjoy

Got out today to do a little Lake Trout fishing. The last cold day has really helped freeze up the slush spots. Travel is still rough but having to not mess with slush is a world of relief. We left Morson and traveled to White Fish Bay this morning around 7:30 .Set up and had a fish on around 9ish. Marked a bunch of sometihng on the vexliar (Perch I Believe, caught a couple )Caught some and lost some fish today. All in all a great adventure. We made it back over to Morson side of the lake to pick up some eaters for supper and a great slab Crappie too.

Here's a few pictures of today's outing

Have a good one

Happy Easter All

It was another great day of Ice Fishing Today. Travel in the morning was tricky with very little snow to keep the slides on the snow machine cool. The ice in WBF was around 29 inches . Fished in the 30+ fow range.

Heres some of what we pulled out of the water full-39664-44794-img_0998.jpg

How is the Turtle Lake portage working? I've heard a lot of mixed information. I also heard there is a size restriction now?

      The pups and I put on 10.5 miles today and flushed 3 hens, 2 grouse and I killed a pine tree, 1 rooster flushed wildly 100 yards to left of us. It sure was fun to get out and seeing some birds. We did jump a good number of deer.

      A couple of Facebook posters on Lake Vermilion Cabin Owners group said that there was still open water in Big Bay Friday Morning.  I am guessing that they may be talking about Oak Narrows.  I'm staying with my original freeze-over date of Thursday, December 1.   Somebody I know who went out fishing from McKinley Park Saturday said that Big Bay was frozen over.  He also said he walked all around the bay and found thicknesses of 1" to 5" of ice, so it is still very questionable.  It should be safe for walking by the middle of next week.   This site will have ice reports for the next week or so.  I will be up the middle of next week and should report on the ice by Thursday night.  The moderator has merged this topic with the Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports topic so I will switch to posting there when I have fishing reports.  Good luck fishing, but be very careful of varying ice conditions.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.
    • leech~~
      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆
