Thanks to all I met up at red Mike and I had a blast! Ninetoe finally put us on two crappies to bring home. It was great to finally put a face to some of these names.

Kelly-p - thanks for putting the stop to me and my fishhouse as we were blowing across the lake! I hope your brother got a plug for his 3-wheeler I did'nt see him after I helped him to shore.

West Wind - Man what a time great food great company! I will bring sharp blades next time for my auger thanks for letting us use yours. I will be up again so you can show me some url crappies.

Don Hudec - You run a fine establishment and take care of your fisherman. Thanks for having reflectors to get us and ninetoes off the lake sat night.

Mark B. - I guess if I was an eskimo you could of sold me ice and a T-shirt but until then you should concentrate on getting back to the bar two nights in a row. Rumor had it you were only a one night wonder. (Just kidding Ninetoes put me up to it)


Until next time

Thanks for the compliment Sand Burr. That was my son! :-) Of course after spending some time with NINETOE I imagine everybody looked younger then him with a hangover.
My son told me to thank you guys for him. It turned out to be the electronic "brain" burned out.
I've heard some interesting stories about the last night you folks were up here. You must be a bad influence on NINETOE. The next morning I called his cel to find out how the fishing was and Guy answered. Guy said NINETOE wasn't there but his phone and coat were.

Yes, what a night it was! Exept we crawled out of bed and were on our way home by 10:00am. Of course we stoped for breakfeast at W.W. (can't beat those o'brien's)

I met so many people last weeked I'm surprised I even remember a first name. Sound's like that $100 wheeler just got expensive! There is a guy over buy me that has built up a little collection of wheeler parts so let me know if he can't find the "brain".

See ya next time

It sounds like Ninetoe could be wandering around upper red lake without a coat! Do you think we should send someone out looking for him? It could get pretty cold out tonight. Ninetoe phone home! Oh that's right, your phone is in your coat. He probably just left it there to throw everyone off the new fishing spot that he found.

Thanks to Mutt and Jeff for the hospitality and for delivering my coat and phone. One question though , how come all those 1-976 #s were called ? smile.gif

Ninetoe I don't know how you do it! You seem to party like a 19-20 year old or were you up until 5:30 searching for crappies? I seem to get tired right around last call. If I do last that long it takes me 1 1/2 days to recover. When will you be heading back up to the big lake? We'll have to hook up sometime soon.

Hello NINETOE,
You are still among us. We were starting to check the milk cartons again. You left a day too soon. Another 1/2 mile out from where you and Baitco were is working very well. In case you forgot Jon brought you up some poly but by the time you get back up here I'm sure we'll be driving out.

      Caught some crappies on the north end of Osakis on Nov 15th. Pulled from 25-27 feet. All laid on their side in the live well. All kept but one.

      On the south end...   Ice continues to form and make progress on Lake of the Woods.  With that being said, it is going to take some time before it is safe and fish houses are out.  Resort ice guides have been out checking ice thickness, flying drones over the ice and basically staying on top of current conditions.   Back bays are locked up and there is some spearing for pike that has been happening.  Ice conditions even in back bays vary, so for safety, please work through resorts and outfitters.   Most of Big Traverse Bay is ice covered.  There are still patches of open water, some cracks that have opened up, etc.  This is typical for this time of year and it will be a bit yet before most can give the green light.     Lake of the Woods is big and there are many areas of the lake resorts and outfitters go out on.  Each business will be monitoring ice conditions in their area and make informed decisions when it is allowed to access the ice through their ice access and what weight limits will be allowed. Resorts and outfitters have started marking trails on the ice in bays and close to shore.  When it is time to get out on the ice, we encourage working through resorts and outfitters and staying on marked trails for safety. On the Rainy River...   The Rainy River is ice covered.  Local resorts and ice guides are monitoring ice conditions in areas of the river they offer ice fishing.  As you have read in this report previously, work through a resort or outfitter for safety reasons.      Up at the NW Angle...  The Angle is ice covered (as a whole).  Outfitters and ice guides have been marking ice trails.  The ice roads and trails are not open yet, but much of the ice has frozen smooth and is coming along very nicely. There are always areas throughout the winter where there is current up at the Angle so it is important to stay on the marked trails, both when they open up and throughout the ice fishing season, which goes through March, Mother Nature dependent on course.

      Are you still planning on walking out there tomorrow? Has the ice actually thickened yet?

      'we have more fun' I Share On FishingMN  152 Posted January 25, 2017 Hey Moose ... what size Pug Bug do you typically use?  Smaller or bigger on your locale lake?   also, do you use the xl maki minnow or the smaller regular one?  For Crappies, noticed that the xl seems to catch bigger fish but not as much quantity?  Curious about your thoughts?

      I caught a few eyes... we're getting a dusting of snow tonight. I probably won't fish much until we get more ice and snow as I like running the sled. Really don't like ice fishing much, do it more for something to do as there's not much to do in the winter. I'm going to start bobcat trapping this winter though
    • smurfy
      awe yea......kettle my friend.......you forgot t tell us if you caught any fish????🤣🤗
