stayed there last year, only real complaint was the beds are noisy. everytime you roll over they squeak. we only stay there for the lodging, we took up our own equipment. also they do not have access to the lake, have to go down to a different resort to get on cost you 5 a day. its not far tho, just around the conner.<P>O

I fished out of Wigwam last winter with some relatives. They took us out to our fish houses in the morning supplied the bait and drove us back to the resort that evening. A guide from the resort showed up later that day and gave us some advice for catching walleyes(what depth etc.) The rooms were pretty nice at the resort and they'll let you order a lunch in the morning and it will be delivered to you while your still on the lake fishing. I would definitely go back again. <P>------------------<BR>The following statement is true.<BR>The previous statement is false.

Hello fished from wigwam in Jan 03, was very happy there. Was nice that they had a bar/rest. right there, plus close enough to the other resorts to get a change of view if needed. Guides were helpful and pleasant. Would definately stay there again<P><BR>Moved to LOW Forum<p>[This message has been edited by Rick (edited 08-20-2004).]

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
