Well, I just got back from fishing up in Ontario again. Fishing was somewhat slow. I ended up with 2 Lakers- one about 12 lbs and another one around 9 lbs. A friend of mine caught one around 16 lbs. We had alot of lookers, but not alot of biters. We also ended up fishing Walleyes the first night up there which was fun. Caught a real nice eye around 5 lbs and a few more real nice fish smile.gif Last night, we ended up getting stuck out there in a white out snowstorm which shut the fishing down to zero. Ended up with a foot of snow in just a few hours and we ended up getting the truck buried out there. Thank god for the people from Manitoba who were in the same boat we were. We ended up helping each other out to get out of there. I never knew a 3/4 ton truck could get airborne...but I witnessed it! All in all, good trip with the exception of our fishing time reduced drastically from the weather-but that's the way she goes...We will get them next year.

I can finally say the ice season for me is over. What an incredible season it was! Caught alot of real nice fish, made some really good friends, and just spent almost the entire winter doing what I really love- Ice fishing! Hope everybody had as much fun as I did!!!

Take care until next ice season,

Justin

What lake were you fishing? Numerous lakes we usually fish have been fairly slow compared to previous years. At least the fish you did get were pigs!

Lake of the Woods. Yeah, I think the water levels have alot to do with where the fish are now and spots that used to produce well. We did see alot of fish, but that storm that moved in on us really screwed things up. I am going to be putting in serious time up there next ice season as I have a cabin to use up there all winter. I just wish I didn't have to wait so long to get back up there as the next few weekends will probably be great weather! Ah, well, those fish will be there 9 months from now! wink.gif

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
