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.

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

      @chaffmj   Good luck out there!

      Tuesday will be post frontal with wind out of the northwest, not a great day for Muskies. Work the weeds and the deep edges of main lake points and rock structures.  Glttertails, and large hair can be effective along with medium sized gliders or minnow style shallow running crankbait. Don't forget to throw a topwater on occasion. "Ace" "It's just fishing man".

      Agreed it’s always to get em on top water. I have even got some walleyes on top water.

      Fished Saturday central Becker County lake for panfish.  5 mm Panfish Pirate jigs with Push Up (Orange Cream) Kraken plastics were the ticket.  Got out there after eating breakfast in Frazee and the fish were biting instantly.  We landed a ton of big gills and upgraded the girlfriend from who had 5 sunfish 8.5"-8.75" up to 9.0" then as we kept fishing we upgraded 9.0 up again to 9.25".  She was excited to say the least.  She probably landed 20 gills 9.0" or greater on saturday alone.  She landed a few 9.5" and they were denied via the photo because the nose wasn't touching the front of the board which is hog wash but it is what it is.  Saturday no wind water temps were 81.0 and fish were up in the weeds tight!  Didn't keep anything and fished till about 2 ish.
      Sunday I took my father and his friend out from Texas.  His friend doesn't fish much so when he had my top of the line UL rod in his hands he didn't know what to think.  Didn't take long though and he was on fire.  We each took a different color and I put dad on Push Up but they wanted Bubble Gum (Pink Cream).  I did get a few on Moby (White) but Push Up was the key color again.  We ended up only fishing from 9 till 11 and kept 8 bigger gills from 8.5-9" all the big boys were thrown back but enough for a few meals of fish is all we were going for and we accomplished that goal.     We will be hopefully fishing Friday evening if I can get off of work early enough and Saturday.  Tournament ends on Saturday so trying to upgrade a 9.25 to a 9.5" to hopefully secure 1st place in the tournament.     A more detailed report is in the Members Only page and I encourage people to please become a member and a lot of people are putting some really great reports on there for the members.
      Have a great week!

      Done that ... new Interstate just last winter. That was the perplexing part about it. I thought maybe it was a bad battery, but it tested out okay. I guess it's possible she doesn't always shut her door all the way and the dome light stays on for days, but she would never admit to that. So I give her the benefit of the doubt and blame her driving habits instead.
    • ozzie
      I hit the chain a few times during vacation 3rd-8th.  We didn't hit the crappies like they did earlier in the week but we caught a few along with a few nice sunnies to have a meal.  We went out once for eyes on lower WF and caught a nice 18" on a jigging rap but that is all we caught that day.  We did try to troll Gull one night and left after an hour an a half because the floating weeds were so bad.
    • leech~~
      I'm with yeah on the boat usage deal. But the wife's car usage deal sounds, well a little fishy! 😂  May be time for her to get a new battery before winter at least.

      Anyone interested in deer can talk with area wildlife managers from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources at meetings scheduled across the state meant to encourage discussions about deer and deer management, enhance local relationships and foster two-way communication.  These area-level engagement meetings organized by the DNR are one of the first steps identified for implementing the state’s new White-tailed Deer Management Plan. ”The format of the meetings will be similar to the ones held in April, when our draft plan was released,” said Erik Thorson, DNR acting big game program leader. “The focus this time will be on the upcoming deer season, progress in meeting population goals, local DNR management efforts and listening to citizen suggestions on improving deer management.” These local open-house style meetings will provide hunters and others interested in deer a forum for sharing their observations, talking to DNR wildlife managers, reviewing new deer-related information – including the final deer plan – and discussing options for the future. No formal presentations have been planned, so people can arrive any time during the scheduled meeting times. The DNR encourages anyone who can’t attend a scheduled meeting to contact a local wildlife manager for additional information or to address any questions about deer management. A list of area wildlife offices is available online at mndnr.gov/areas/wildlife. More information about the state’s deer management plan is available at mndnr.gov/deerplan.

      I have had this same issue and came to the conclusion that I don't run the outboard enough to recharge the battery back to full capacity. I fish medium to smaller lakes and thus don't spend a whole lot of time at high speeds going across the lake ... just a short move here and there searching for fish. So I end up starting the engine  20-30 times per outing, but not running the outboard enough to get it back up to full voltage. And my Hummer shuts down when I crank the engine. So I now know that I need to put the charger on my starting battery at the end of the day. FYI, my wife has a similar issue with her SUV ... new Interstate battery keeps going down because she starts it, drives a couple miles ... stops, then starts it again and comes home. She rarely goes more than a couple miles per trip amd never over 30 mph. The alternator doesn't keep up with her use of the starter and thus gets low after a few weeks.
