Lake of the Woods get-together June 14th????


Recommended Posts

There has been talk of a FM get-together
weekend on LOW for some time. Lets put it
together.
The weekend of June 14th might be a good
choice. Fishing should be good without
running all over the lake. We have an invite
from Kaz to have a cookout at his house
Saturday night. The Zipple Bay guides shore
lunch area is at our disposal for a midday
break.

Very tentative schedule..

Friday night social (possibly at Schusters)

Saturday morning meeting at the Wheelers Point Landing. To explain contests and
schedule for the day, collect for big fish
pots (the important stuff)

Shore lunch at the Z-Bay park (maybe Polish
and dogs for convenience sake or maybe the
whole fish fry thing.

Awards and cookout (my choice for fish fry)
at Kaz's place in the evening. (located near
RiverBend Resort)

Sunday??????????????

Fishing could be anywhere you wanted to go
but mostly the Gaps and Zipple Bay areas
I suppose.

If June 14th is a bust, we will shoot for
August something and deep water and reef fishing.

Let's see a show of hands here. We can work
out details along the way.

Lodging may be tough to get, the LOW Chamber
can be a help.

Please include your ability to bring a boat
and if you have room for company in your
boat (you know, someone to help pay for gas).

Check your schedules and indicate if the
weekend of June 14th fits. Post Yea or Nay

PLEASE PUT REPLY ON LOW FORUM POST

Curt, everyone is either on the Rainy on doing their "honey do list". Not on the comp. It still is a good idea. Maybe we should try for the west end of the lake? no offense Kas.

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.

      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.
