ice fishing Question

Recommended Posts

ATM

A co worker of mine is having a bachelor party on the ice up at lake of the woods and was wondering what month typically would be the best for fishing. We know obviously things change but on the average what do you guys or gals think. I was up last year and had great success both early and late. thanks Adam

You're right- early or late. I personally feel the fish bite good all winter long up there but early ice or later ice seam to provide better action. Last winter was pretty good at early ice, couldn't drive on the ice yet but good enough for sleds. I just don't see how you can go wrong.

If you guys are willing to travel by ATV than I would say early is better. But if you are looking for a permanent house type of fishing trip where you can drive out in trucks than you can't really go wrong anytime during the winter in my opinion. But if I had to choose a date I would pick mid to late February out of Adrians Road. You should pick up a lot of saugers and quite a few walleyes as well. Some big perch too. <P>Good Fishin,<BR>Matt Johnson<P>------------------<BR><A HREF="http://www.[YouNeedAuthorization].com" TARGET=_blank>Matt Johnson Outdoors</A><BR><B>[email protected][YouNeedAuthorization].com</B><BR><B>Metro Area Ice Fishing and more...</B><P><A HREF="http://iceleaders.com" TARGET=_blank>Iceleaders</A><BR><A HREF="http://marcumcustomerservice.com/" TARGET=_blank>MarCum</A><BR><A HREF="http://stonelegacy.com" TARGET=_blank>Stone Legacy</A><BR><A HREF="http://www.jrstackle.com/index.html" TARGET=_blank>JR's Tackle</A><BR><A HREF="http://www.fishfever.com" TARGET=_blank>Fish Fever</A>

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????

      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.
