FM Get Together - Lake of the Woods!!!

Matt Johnson

Recommended Posts

We're going to plan an FM Get Together on Lake of the Woods on Saturday, March 11.

Yep, the same day as the I.C.E. Series event smile.gif

We'll be based out of Zippel Bay Resort (www.zippelbayresort.com) and we'll also have a tent set up out on the ice.

This is going to be an opportunity for everyone, regardless of whether you're fishing in the event or not, to join up with us and share in the fun.

You can watch the weigh-in, fish with FM and IceLeaders Pro Staff, as well as join in all the festivities that are taking place that weekend.

For everyone who shows up before the start of the I.C.E. Series event (8am), you can enter for the FREE prize drawing that will be held after the weigh-in.

So, I repeat, you do not have to compete in the I.C.E. Series to attend the Get Together, it's open to everyone who is looking for a weekend to get away and enjoy the excellent fishing opportunities that Lake of the Woods has to offer, as well as spend some time with other ice anglers.

It's a good way to meet fellow FMer's and put a few faces with some of the names that we see on here everyday. Also a good opportunity to try out some new gear and win some great prizes!

Many of our Pro Staff will be there spending the weekend chasing down walleye, sauger, pike, perch, etc... and we're asking you to join up with us for a day on the ice.

Should be a lot of fun!

I hope to see a lot of you there!

Matt, I'm in for the ice series event, if I can find a group to hang with, need a bunk for the trip, pretty independent after that, but would like to be with the group for the fun! If you can think of anyone that would be willing to let me stay, if there is room of course, let me know. Looking forward to it if it works out.

      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.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
