I'll be there. Where are you thinking of heading out of this weekend? We will be on sled at Z-bay or Pine, can't decide. Was out tuesday and saw a couple small vehicles near Pine. Now last nite a Roseau kid told me there are people driving out all over????

I'm gonna get on the phone here in a bit and call around to see if this is so.

Good luck Curt, maybe even see ya!

Fisky,

I work till 10 Sat morning should get to the
lake by around 2.

Figured on Pine, but am open to suggestion.

I have a 4 wheeler so getting around wont
be trouble.

Am staying at Springsteel sat night and
fishing Sunday for most of the day too.
A chance to check out a couple of places.

Lets hook up

I won't know exactly where we are heading until we figure it out tonite over the phone, also gonna hit some local tackle stores for odds and ends. I'll post where we're heading this evening, 7 or 8. I'm leaning towards Pine. I'm gonna be fishing with a friend who's into the comfort factor so we'll probably drag out the heavy 8x8 blue tarp homebuilt portable.

Spoke with one of the nice Adrian's ladies, they're not advising driving, but said lots of folks are crossing over in small vehicles.

Spoke with Deanna at Z-bay, she said they opened up their road this morning, but only out to the sandbar.

Spoke with Phyla at Sringsteel, she said folks are hitting the sandbar out front, and going over to Elm, and that the fishings been good. Approx. 8-9 inches of ice. She had'nt heard of anyone getting over to the S. tip, but she was'nt sure.

Curt- you planning on fishing out of the Springsteel area on Sunday? That could prove interesting and very rewarding, I'd love to be able to get out to the S. tip this early in the year. Ifinn we don't see one another on the ice, we could maybe hook up Saturday nite at Sprinsteels lodge?

Talk at ya later....Fisky

Fisky,

Justin from Dennys Sports wants to get over
to South Point on Sunday I told him I wanted
to go too. That could be real good!

I may not come up till later in the day
and just fish on Sunday. I have a place
at Springsteel so thats where I will be.

I'll stop at the lodge in the evening.
post what time you want to meet there. I'll
check here early in the morning Saturday.

Curt, are you "the" C.Q.'s son? Broadcaster from TRF, got to be. Fished with your dad at LOL, and M/Sippi in town.
Is he in Alabam this winter?
He keeps threatening to take me up on your big boat on LOL.

John Schaal in Mpls.

Sounds like I'm heading for Zippel tomorrow. I could try and spin in 6:30ish or so, we'll be fishing till dark at zippel, so that sounds about right. I'm riding with a friend who may not want to stop though, so don't hang out too long if you got other things going. I'm thinking of fishing the westside on Sunday also so we may yet meet up. Have a good weekend for sure.

Gulf Shores it is, Im not sure where they are
staying, I think it is someplace new this year.
Dads doing great. He fishes off one of the
public piers out into the Gulf. They have
been playing Bridge more and more so that
takes up quite a bit of time too.

I think they are having a blast. Thanks for
asking. I will send them your e-mail address

      On the south end...   Ice fishing continues strong and it is still winter on the border.    Overnight temps in the teens and twenties are maintaining ice nicely.  Fishing continues to be excellent.  It has been an incredible year for walleyes and saugers with both numbers and size.     Resort fish houses and sleeper fish houses are available.  Some ice roads are allowing pickup trucks pulling wheelhouses as well.  Check with each individual ice road for specific limits.   As always, and certainly this year, it is important to stay on the resort ice roads.  It is tempting to go off on your own as there isn't much snow, but that is a risky move any time of the year.  Resorts and outfitters keep their roads on the best ice and monitor it numerous times per day.   Lake of the Woods enjoys an extended ice fishing season each year.  Fish houses are allowed on the ice through March 31st, the walleye / sauger season goes through April 14th and the pike season never ends.   The majority of ice fishing for walleyes and saugers is taking place in 24 - 34 feet of water.  Jigging one line and using a live minnow on the second line is the way to go.   Pike anglers fishing shallower shoreline breaks and reporting good activity and big fish.  Pike activity will only increase as we approach the month of March.  Arming your spread with a mixture of live and dead baits will allow you to quickly figure out what the pike wants that day. Alewife, smelt, herring, numerous sizes of live suckers, or even large shiners work well. On the Rainy River...  Most ice fishing is taking place on the lake.  There are a couple of resorts that ice fish on the Rainy River.  Know ice conditions or work through a resort or outfitter for safety.    The river is open east of Birchdale.  Those who enjoy the spring open water season on the river are optimistic the river will open early.  Is your boat and fishing gear ready when it does? Up at the NW Angle...   Another very good week of ice fishing up at the Angle.  Walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout, pike and some big crappies in the mix.   Water conditions are clearer this winter compared to most.  For that reason, the morning and evening bites have been stronger than midday overall. Jigging one line and deadsticking the second line is the way to go.  Electronics help in determining what the fish want that given day and will up your catch of fish.   Ice fishing has been excellent, come on up.  It's still winter on the border!

      There's only one Waterfowl guide in the country that I went to. He runs about 20 trips a year. So he harvests about 185,000 less teal a year than some of the individual southern states. In MN, lots of the teal are gone before the early teal season

      Wow, don't want to be one of those guys.  But, you don't think such liberal limits down there, hurts the northern population next spring?

      Kettle..........we really didnt have a winter.......even up in your neck of the woods!!!!!👍🤣

      I only duck hunted this trip. Definitely going back next year. Winter gets too long for me. I met some amazing people and might help with guiding for them in the future. Would love to escape a month or two every winter
    • Mike89
      just seen a show about duck and dove hunting down that way, Scoot Lyseth and the Dead Meat show!!

      Some teal from central America

      I think it was opened so I don't think I would trust it.  I will find use for the wooden blocks however.

      Some morons just shouldn't be allowed out on the ice. Thanks for pitching in to clean it up.   On the bonus side, is it a quart of oil that you can use?
