can it be luck?

My girlfriend and I will be attending this weekend. She kicks my butt whenever we go fishing(I'm always untangling her line smile.gif). This weekend will probably be no different. I have a 6-7 hour drive after work Friday, so it'll be a looong night and day. I would've liked to have gotten there a day earlier to do a little fishing and scouting around. Oh well, will have to wing it.....Fishing, fun, food, trophys, and a chance at some great prizes......Count me in!!!

I'll be there. Unfortunately, the wife isn't interested in ice fishing, so I'm flyin' solo. I do hope to hook up with some of the pro staff and pick up a few tips and hints, though.

See you all there.

That sounds great! Cold front makeing ice to be followed by a warm up, the fish should be on the bite by Saturday with that weather scenario. Temps in the 20s is very tolerable even for the not so "hardcore" fisherman. It sounds as though the bite on Winni has been doing real well as of late. Get those weigh in scales ready, get the grills going! Make room in the truck to possibly bring home some great prizes.....Here we come!!! grin.gif PS: It sounds like there'll be a lot of women and kids comeing along. So guys, this may be your chance to get the lady involved with your fishing hobby. Women like to see other women around, and as far as introducing them to ice fishing...No where better than Winni! Lots of action, few lulls in activity, and a social affair, she'll be begging you..."Hey honey, Turn that game off and let's go fishing!"...Well, we can wish for that at least. smile.gif

Just so most of you know.

Most of the Pro Staff (especially those that know Winnie well) are going to be there to help out those who are looking for likely fish holding spots and/or would like some help with technique.

While we are going to crown the "World's Greatest Ice Angler" the ICE Series is mainly about introducing more people, families, women, and kids to the fun aspects of being on the Leading Edge of ice fishing.

    • skyking
      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.
    • Harry Goodliffe
      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.
    • Gone Out Fishin
      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin
    • Parmer
      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.
    • A Warrior
      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket
    • Rick
      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
