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

      I haven't been past Reno lately but I've heard they have been driving on part of the lake with trucks. This is a bit of a surprise because I have also heard from a coworker that lives on the lake that there is open water out there or was within the last week. I would proceed with extreme caution.
    • Hoey
      Sculp - You are totally correct.  After my post that you are referencing, I began to wonder about the sauger component of the limit, since the DNR commission recommended changes that harmonizes the winter and summer limit of eyes and sauger.  Those changes have not been implemented.  I just check on this a day or two ago.  Thank you reading my post and your attention to detail. Merry Christmas to you and your family!!! Hoey

      @bassfshin24 and I snuck up to Mille Lacs for 2 days of fishing recently. We were targeting Walleye near shallow structure in the low light hours and bumping out a bit deeper during mid-day. The first day was slow for us but we found more action on Day 2 including my 2nd biggest Walleye through the ice. I also caught my first tagged Walleye! Pay attention for my slip and fall...      
    • Darett
      Any updates on the ice condition of Bald Eagle? wanted to go up there tomorrow. Has there been any increase of traffic on the lake yet?

      Back in the 70's my Dad would take us up to the lake quite often during the winter.   He would rent a day house from Bergeren's Resort (no longer in business).  Very, very few people dared to stay out on the lake overnight!  It was just a bare-bones ice house with folding chairs, a wood burning stove (the fire was lit when we arrived, and there was plenty of cut dry wood for us to burn), holes were opened and cleaned for us, and they provided a bucket full of lively fathead minnows.  We would drive our car out to the house being lead by the resort pickup truck, and they would provide assistance if it was needed.   I know my Dad paid $17.50 for a full day's use of the house (regardless of how many of us were fishing there). 😃 The guys that worked for the resort would swing by a couple times a day to make sure we had enough firewood, and minnows to make it thru the day.   I recall that we didn't seem to catch any "dinks" back then.  Most of the fish we brought to the surface were solid, 16-18 inch chunky walleyes and saugers.  Now it seems like we have to weed thru 5-10 shakers for each "keeper" we toss in the bucket.   We would always catch enough fish for a meal of fried fish, potatoes and Pork and Beans cooked over the Coleman stove my Dad always brought out with us, and most times we had plenty of fish to bring home as well.  We only had hand lines back then.  No fish finding electronics.  We measured depth to the bottom with a 2 oz. weight attached to the hook.   Those really were the "good old days"!   Can you imagine that???  We paid today's equivalent cost of 2-3 scoops of minnows, for a fish house with holes drilled, limitless firewood, and HUNDREDS of minnows!!! 🤣

      This was a great time last year!  Kudos to anyone that helped coordinate it; you guys are great!.  I'd love to see it happen again. (...perhaps, though, ?wait until there's a good, consistent 2 feet of ice...--see 12/9/18 Fish trap lake tragedy...)

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has committed to pursuing certification of 15,000 acres of croplands it owns and manages as part of a statewide effort to protect water quality.  The effort falls under the Department of Agriculture’s Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program. Farmers and agricultural producers are certified for voluntarily managing their land in a way that conserves the state’s water. To date, the program has evaluated and certified over 450,000 acres of Minnesota farmland. With the DNR’s commitment, 465,000 acres will be enrolled into the certification program. “The DNR needs to be a leader in ensuring croplands we manage contribute to water quality goals,” said Tom Landwehr, DNR commissioner. “The certification program demonstrates to us, and to the people of Minnesota, that we are using best practices in our land management activities.” The DNR’s small farm fields, mainly scattered across western and southern Minnesota, are managed to provide a supplemental food source for wildlife, particularly in winter months, to increase wildlife viewing or hunting opportunities, or to provide alternate food sources for wildlife to prevent crop damage on private lands. In most cases, the DNR uses agreements with local farmers to plant and manage the fields. In return for planting and managing the crop, the cooperating farmer harvests a portion of the field for themselves and leaves the remaining crop to stand through the winter. The DNR continually seeks opportunities to improve how it manages public lands administered by the agency, including cropland. Improving cropping practices on DNR lands can provide a number of desired benefits, including enhancing feeding opportunities for wildlife, protecting plants and animals on surrounding habitats, conserving and protecting water quality, protecting air quality, as well as sequestering carbon and conserving energy. “The Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program has long been a collaborative effort between federal, state, and local partners,” said Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson. “We are pleased to enroll these DNR-owned lands into the program. This demonstrates how we can all work together to make clean water a priority.” As a supporting partner in the water quality certification program, the DNR participated in the Agriculture Department’s initial efforts to pilot the program, certifying 900 acres of DNR land in 2015 in southeastern Minnesota. In 2012, the state of Minnesota began developing the nation’s first Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program to protect and enhance the water quality of its rivers, lakes, streams, wetlands and groundwater. The following year the Minnesota Legislature authorized the Department of Agriculture to begin implementing the program. Farm producers who implement the necessary conservation practices and participate in the program receive regulatory certainty for 10 years, recognition and priority for technical and financial assistance.

      Somewhat local, 65 miles away.  Roseau/Badger area got less than the Baudette area but it still wasn't much.  We had about 3" this morning, not sure what fell over there.

      The public can get more details about what the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is doing to respond to chronic wasting disease found in wild deer in southeastern Minnesota at a meeting scheduled for 7-8:30 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 18, in Preston.  At the meeting in the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., DNR staff will explain the CWD response efforts planned for this winter, including late-season special hunts, landowner shooting permits and targeted culling. “DNR’s actions are designed to limit disease spread and keep Minnesota’s deer populations healthy,” said Lou Cornicelli, wildlife research manager. “We’re having this meeting so people can hear face-to-face about what’s going on and ask their own questions.” Staff also will discuss potential future actions, including a snow-dependent aerial deer survey and expansion of the disease management zone, that now encompasses a 10-mile radius around the city of Preston. To date, sampling efforts taken by the DNR in cooperation with hunters have detected 30 cases of the neurological disease in wild deer in southeastern Minnesota. The DNR discovered 12 new cases this fall in or around the disease management zone in Fillmore County. The agency discovered one additional case that was recently confirmed for a wild deer harvested in Houston County, about 30 miles from the disease management zone. Complete Minnesota CWD test results, including locations of positive test results and statistics, are available on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/cwdcheck. Complete information for hunters about CWD for current and upcoming hunting seasons is online at mndnr.gov/cwd. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Fished Big Pine last night and this AM. Measured 13'' of ice about a mile south of the Grandview access.    Caught a handful of small walleyes (12'' and under) between 3:30 P.M. and 5 P.M. with the occasional northern pike mixed in. Its been slow fishing but ice conditions are good on my side of the lake with the exception of an small ridge coming straight off the point of the access and a small crack running along the south shoreline of the lake starting near the access.     Tight Lines!
