I was in a bit of hurry when I put up these<BR>2 possible dates yesterday. I can give you<BR>more info and maybe answer some questions<BR>in advance.<P>If you have a big boat, a little boat or<BR>no boat at all try to commit to project.<BR>We can hook you up with others for a fun<BR>day of fishing.<P>We can meet for breakfast or just stop<BR>somewhere in the morning to check in and<BR>get the final itinerary. <P>Shore lunch is a possiblity or sandwiches in the boat can keep you on the water longer.<P>At the end of the day a big outdoor fish fry<BR>(this is why shorelunch isnt so important).<P>As the day nears, we just post what we can<BR>bring to the fish fry and a good time will<BR>be had by all.<P>We will try to get some site sponsors and<BR>big wigs in attendance too. It would be<BR>nice to get to know them personally too.<P>Check your dancecards and vote for the date<BR>that you can most likely get to.<P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio

The June date would work better for me. If I had to vote, I would go with the west side. If it is the east side, I'll still make it.<P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON

Late June-mid July is my favorite time for the west side of the big pond!<P>So, my vote would be a Warroad in June. I usually stay at the campground. <P>My only concern is GAS prices. grin.gif If I could find someone to ride north and fish in my 18' glass boat, and share the wonderful expense of fuel... grin.gifgrin.gif

curt, there is a structure across from the fish cleaning houses at the Warroad campground, but we'd better check on what else might be going on also at that location.<P>------------------<BR><B>Old Guide Charters</B><BR>Lake of the Woods<BR><A HREF="http://fishingmn.com/oldguidecharters/" TARGET=_blank>http://fishingminnesota.com/oldguidecharters/</A><BR>Call Toll Free:1-800-952-(9484)

Right at the Warroad public access I remember a large area of grass and possibly picnic tables within 20-30 yards of the access. I also believe these spots could have been camping (tents) spots. Maybe Fisky or someone can confirm.

Chuck, you may be speaking of that other Warroad access off of Kakageesic??? It has a small grassy area. The main access area has open grassy area west across the parking lot from the ramps, Strieff tourney's weighin area last year. The pavillion that Pat mentioned is very nice....Large and screened. There is also a smaller covered picnic spot right on the beach there too.<P>Fisky

I was talking about the public access at the river mouth....the same place Strieff's tourney has weigh in's, or at least a couple years ago. smile.gif<P>I didn't see the pavillion, but there were a lot of buildings and what not around that area. This area all works well IMO.

OK for figuring and planning sake lets <BR>say June 19th at the Warroad public landing<BR>camping area.<P>I would think they would have a nice<BR>place to feed a group.<P>Fisky or other locals, can you check to<BR>see if we can cook fish and maybe have a <BR>beer at the park? Please.<P>As we get closer we will see whos on board<BR>and what everyone can bring. We had plenty<BR>last year, but we had to run to Log Cabin<BR>Bait for pop.(wasnt it pop?)<P>Bring your cameras we will really try to <BR>get Fisky there to pose.<P>Thanks to all so far<P><BR> <P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio

OG:<P>I have a hard time knowing what I'm doing tomrorrow, yet alone a date that far in advance, but if it's in the Warroad area, there would be a pretty good chance I could make it.

Cool the legendary WT just might be there to give me more lessons!!!!<P>Curt, I got the answering service at the coc and I am hoping for a call back. Was gone yesterday so they may have tried then. I'll keep ringing them. Spoke with a lady at the city office and was told that reservations thru coc are needed for that nice one, she did'nt mention a fee and I forgot to ask. I'll let you know what I find out once they get back to me, but won't reserve it till the date is confirmed by you all.<P>Regards....Fisky

      On the main basin... Many strong reports from the lake.  Mixed schools of fish from 14-28' along south shore from Lighthouse Gap to Rocky Point.  Most anchored up and jigging with frozen shiners.  Gold or gold mixed with other colors working well.   The key is finding the fish.  Once found, fish tend to cooperate nicely.     On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues.  Jig and frozen shiners continue to be the go-to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits.  Gold, orange and yellow for jigs.  As waves of walleyes move through, reports change daily up and down river.  Be mobile, move around if a spot isn't producing.  A lot of good reports in 8-14'.  Some big walleyes caught over the weekend. Sturgeon continue to have the feed bag on.  The sturgeon catch and release season goes through April 23, 2019.       Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be really really good.  Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'.  Jigging still producing.  Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays.  Fall crappie bite in on.  Muskie trollers still boating and releasing good numbers of fish.  The best fall fishing is yet to come, but only for the hearty!  Dress warm and hang on.

      I guess I dont mind the bonus tags, but prefer it when it is a 1 deer limit.  Only because I like seeing a lot of deer.  Selfish I know, but!   I have yet to shoot a deer in Camp myself.  This will be my 16 Year hunting out of 20 years applying. Love Camp, even on the down years.  My time is  coming, I hope.
    • monstermoose78
      I liked the bonus tags in ripley as many people only were chasing trophies. I shot a fair number of does and fawns there. Only shot one buck and some idiots took it is was a nice 9 pointer.
    • ANYFISH2
      I will be sure to call you!   But of course, you can do the same. Unfortunately bonus tags are in play again.
    • monstermoose78
      With 700 people 74 deer aint bad  And  no bonus tags
    • Agronomist_at_IA
      Well......The issue is that the biologists, scientists, and others have looked at the compiled data regardless if the data is good or bad, and have no consensus on what is really wrong or going on or how to fix. So out of confusion and not understanding on what's going on they've taken a course of action which doesn't seem to be working. Leaving a bunch of large walleyes in a lake with low forage doesn't work to well. If young recruitment of walleye isn't happening, maybe they should look at trying something else.....  
    • Wanderer
      I bet that success rate goes up this weekend if the rain doesn’t get too crazy.   It should be 10% + Anyfish’s buck at least. 😉   At least you can have someone around to help you drag it out.
    • ANYFISH2
      74 deer harvested, 5 or 6 bucks topping 200 pounds.  Right around 10 % success rate.   Info per area wildlife manager.
    • Wanderer
      This is what I heard from someone who hunted:   The 200 lb mark was broken by at least one buck.   Deer sightings were OK.   Bears, bears, bears... gorging on acorns.   About 700 hunters participated.   Success rate unknown.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has announced that regional wildlife manager Cynthia Osmundson will become the supervisor of the agency’s Nongame Wildlife Program, effective next month. Osmundson will replace the recently retired Carrol Henderson.  “Minnesotans have been strong supporters of the state’s nongame program, and it’s my desire to build on that success and continue to connect people with wildlife,” Osmundson said. The donor-supported DNR Nongame Wildlife Program works to help more than 700 species of Minnesota wildlife thrive. Nongame wildlife are species that are not legally hunted, with a focus on species that are rare, declining or vulnerable to decline. Minnesota’s Wildlife Action Plan is an important guide for this work. This partnership-based, 10-year conservation plan is designed to ensure the long-term health and viability of Minnesota’s wildlife and to enhance opportunities for people to enjoy it. “We are so fortunate to inherit the strong foundation Carrol Henderson and his team of wildlife professionals have built over the years,” Osmundson said. Osmundson most recently served as regional wildlife manager in the DNR’s Central Region, where she and her team focused on key priorities affecting the 50,000 acres of wildlife habitat in 23 counties including the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, and outreach to diverse communities. Before that, Osmundson was the statewide forest habitat coordinator in the DNR Wildlife Section. She has also worked as a planner for the Minnesota Forest Resources Council and as an assistant refuge manager in Montana and Wisconsin with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Born and raised in Minnesota, Osmundson earned her bachelor’s degree in zoology from the University of Montana and a master’s degree in wildlife biology from the University of Wyoming. While there, she had opportunities to trap and tag grizzly bears, as well as raft the Colorado River in search of endangered fish and peregrine falcons.
