The bite has slowed some but there are still fish to be caught out there with some persistence. I know a friend of mine who was out there last weekend and he got all of his fish in 3 - 4' of water away from the crowds on jiggin' raps.

Good luck! Now's the time before the cold front moves in.

Away from the crowds and persistance, now thats an interesting concept for walleyes. I wonder how many people try that

a few of us do smirk.gifbut usually somebody sees u taking a flag or 2 then u have company,i know use a portable,but i love my tipups,then when too much company shows up u just go and find diff. fish,it'll never change so u just hav to get used to it.BUT thats how u find diff. spots wink.gifheres to FLAGSUP laugh.gif by the way they wonder why you were there in the first place cause they dont catch anything HMMMM traffic&walleyes mix like oil & water,which reminds me last night i used some fish attractant an some stayed on top of my hole,an kept my hole from freezing overk,while the other hole with none froze over,neat new trick!learn something new every day wink.gif

Very true. Foam under the tip-up works well too. Also creates "shadow pockets" under the ice for changes in light. Often times this is where your bigger fish will come from. So, no ice in the hole and bigger fish. smirk.gif

      Hi, I am writing on here to try to find the owner of some fishing gear that was left on East Rush Lake. I found it last Sunday morning and would like to get the gear back to the owner. If you can describe what you lost I'm willing to meet up and return your stuff back to you. I know how much it sucks losing your gear and starting over. Call me if you think it might be your gear.  Travis 651-315-9913

      Best to contact the DNR and let them access it to see if they think it's an issue before you end up with a fine.

      No, I went out the north access that you can't launch a boat on. 237th and Granda off of North Shore Trail. Very north end of Lake 1.

      Just a heads up that you cannot trap beavers on an WMA without a permit from the wildlife manager.

      The cost is for sure starting to get up there.  I've been wanting to take the kids but I just can't justify the cost for a weekend of fishing.  All of ice fishing trips end up being guys trips where we all split the costs, then it doesn't end up being that bad.  I'm guessing the bulk of the groups that outfitters service are groups of guys splitting the costs and that is partly what drives their pricing.  If they were pricing the houses and services with families of 4 in mind they likely wouldn't be able to charge nearly as much.    I can't fault the resorts as they are pricing based on what the majority of their clientele are.  Very few resorts are out there getting rich regardless.  I do however think hundreds of dollars a night for a single room shack with plywood bunk beds is a bit crazy when you really think about it. I pay less per night when staying in high end hotels in down town Minneapolis.

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.

      Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them
