I have a week of vacation and am taking my 2 sons 12,9. My trip runs a week starting June 9th, I see there is a FM event that day which I won't make it up there by then. We will be tenting mainly in the Bemidji area but would love to come to LOW for a day trip or 2 full days. I would love to give my 2 boys a LOW experience.

1. Is their a resort that would offer a campground?

2. Where would be the best area to go. I have fished the lake many times in the winter, just follow the roads.

3. Crawlers, leeches or what?

4. We love to do all kinds of fishing, spinners, jigs, cranks etc. Would one be better than the other.

5. Just want to give my sons an experience with dad they won't forget.. Alot of questions I know and don't know I will make the 2 hr drive, but I have to be prepared if we do it. any info would help greatly.

Thanks for any help. P.s I know I should get and would get a guide but budget is pretty thin.

Zipple Bay State Park is a good place to camp. They have a nice marina and good fishing close by.

Minnows and leeches have been working the best for us. We've been pulling spinners, but sounds like the jig bite is still on.

Welcome, the bite is on.I had the best action with crawlers&silver spinner rigs. Gold is the normal color up here, but for some reason silver worked well this spring.I fished in 10 to 20 feet of water over sand and rock rubble. found the post spawners were hanging around there.Now that it is a little later, try all options and depths.No one thing always works, so bring the big tackle box.. Good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
