Am I the only one getting frustrated with the Weather? When will the Gods cooperate and give us a decent weekend? rather than great weather when we are working?

Well guys ,, I hate to say it but i dont mind the rain so much. I get more of the lake to fish... Doing seasonal work also means I gotta work my tail off so I can fish all winter grin.gif..It is common practice to see a rain dance performed on a job site so we can go fishing,, hahaha.

Nasty weather days to me guys means this; I get to work those areas that are productive easier.There is less traffic on the water during bad weather.

Hey Yogi,, Didnt you get My mail?

This weather is getting old, it was so cold today my hands had a hard time with the reel. Heading back to the lake soon and fish tomorrow and hopefully not freeze.
I am almost ready to get my icehouse out for shore fishing.

Rain... No problem. I'm not so sweet as I'm going to melt, that's for sure. BUT...
It's that FLASH...BANG stuff that I don't care for. shocked.gif

I was getting pretty good at dodging these rain clouds, but I had had enough and threw in the towel. After I used it of course....

I at least have a few crappies to eat tonight.

From the it could be worse file. I was frustrated with all the rain, then I came down to Iowa for the weekend.

While driving down, I was surprised with all of the fields with significant standing water. That and most rivers have gone outside their banks, doing some damage to farm fields and towns. We have had 2-3 inches of additional rain in the last two days. And the tornado sirens went off this afternoon, but never touched down.

Hopefully all of this rain will go away for a few weeks.

Yeah that would be nice, I've missed the last two sundays due to the weather. Hoping tommorrow won't rain as much. It can drizzle and be a light sprinkle all day as long as there isn't anything to heavy. Was out yesterday afternoon and did not rain(I think we just got lucky).


Good Fishin'...

I don't mind the rain so much as the wind. It's been blowing 20mph+ on all but one day that I've been on the water this year.

I can't complain, had one of my better days on Monday. Caught 18 walleyes in 3 1/2 hours in the wind and rain. I hope that S.W. wind howls tomorrow. I'm playing hooky and going back.

      On the south end... Ice roads and ice trails are extending out on Lake of the Woods looking to connect with schools of walleyes and saugers.  Some ice roads are out as far as 24 miles.   The subzero cold snap is good for extending ice into March, but it was tough on the bite.  Once the weather started warming up, so did the bite.   Most anglers report picking through numbers of small fish to catch eaters, slot fish and some true trophy fish over 28 inches. Depths vary depending upon outfitter based on where they are fishing, but as a rule, 32-36 feet has been the norm.  The morning / evening bite for walleyes in shallow water,16 - 19 feet, has been active for some. Jigging a lipless crankbait with vibration and rattles has been working well to catch some fish and also draws other fish into the area you are fishing.  Some fish in more of a neutral mood will slide over and take interest in your deadstick, a live minnow just off of the bottom. As a rule, glow and bright colors during cloudy days, the golds and silvers during sunny days.   A mixed bag for many being reported, including walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout (burbot), pike, tullibees and even a few sturgeon and crappies.   On the Rainy River...   The golden hour (beginning and end of the day) continues to be the best on the river for those fishing for walleyes and saugers.  Some good reports this week. Some sturgeon have been iced at night by those hunting dinosaurs.   Ice conditions can vary on the river as there is current, work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Resorts up at the Angle are hard at work staying on the walleyes.  As a rule, 24 - 30 feet of water is the norm.   Similar to the south shore, using a noisy, more aggressive lure has been effective, as has a jigging spoon tipped with a piece of minnow.  Work the jigging line in one hole with a deadstick and a plain hook a foot off of the bottom in your second hole.   Many eater walleyes caught this week with a variety of other fish in the mix.  Some anglers fishing the Ontario side for crappies are finding some nice slabs. Driving through Canada to the Angle no longer requires vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App. For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, snowmobiling across the lake on the marked trails or utilizing the Lake of the Woods Passenger (bombardier) Service are best options.  Fish houses are out through March 31st, walleye and sauger season through April 14, pike season never closes.

      Visitors to Minneopa State Park may soon notice fewer trees near the waterfall area of the park. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will remove 20 trees from the area, including 17 ash trees, beginning Feb. 6.Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I can confirm that I have 3-4 bars the entire drive from Cook to The Landing. When I winter park at a cabin near CigarGuy, I get two bars way up on the hill but still through the trees. There is good reception out on the lake but I haven't exactly been riding around and pulling out my phone to check my cell reception.   Depending on where you are, you may have 4 bars or none. I have none still, but that's because I'm on the north side of a hill with tall trees between my cabin and the tower.

      ~10" perch and an 8" bluegill

      Something else to just keep in mind here now too is that the deadline to remove permanent overnight unattended shacks is in exactly one month in the southern 2/3 of the state - March 6.  Plan ahead and don't let your castle get stuck out there beyond the deadline.  The DNR can and will confiscate it on site because I know people who have experienced this.

      I heard Green lake by Princeton has plowed roads and truck and castles out there. I will swing by to check it out. Please check the ice conditions for yourself. There is 4-6 inches if slush ice so take that off your totals as that is not very strong.
