LOTW Question


Recommended Posts

You veterans of LOTW (10 years or so), from freeze up to close of the season, when is the SLOWEST time of the season??? I have only fished it for 3 winter seasons, and it seems to me that we might be in that part of it now.

Typically Feb is supposed to be the slowest of the winter season, however this year has been anything but typical.

We've always ended up with fish on the Feb trip it just seemed that you really had to work for them. Last year the Feb bite for us over Pine was pretty dead so we headed to Knight and Bridges reefs and great success. Two years ago we caught the largest walleyes of the season in Feb in 33-34' of water as well as a 41" gator. I'm headed back two weeks from today so hopefully the slower start will pick up momentum as we move toward the last part of the ice season. Never give up its a great place to spend a few days, the fish are always a bonus. Bill

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
