LOTW ice fishing outing

4 posts in this topic

Every February myself and some friends go up to LOTW to ice fish and stay out on the lake from Friday to Sunday in a permanent shack through Arnesen's Resort. I would like to get a bunch of us from this site to make it a get together and finally meet each other while having a great time ice fishing this February.

Is there anyone interested in doing this and just having a great time with some good people and some good ice fishing to boot? I have no problem putting this together and reserving some permanent shacks for us. Each shack sleeps 4 people and I know this is early notice but they fill these up pretty early so I have to reserve them in the next month or so.

This is such a great time and if you go with a group of people they will place the shacks within 100 yards of each other so everyone is still in walking distance from each other. There is great fish fry's while we are out there as well as a steak cook out on another night. If anyone would like to go on this outing please let me know so I can get a count of how many people.

I have only fished there in February and have done really well, is there a reason why January would be better? Just wanted to know since I have never fished there in January.

I would be in! I agree, January would be better, the fish are a little more predictable and depending on conditions there may be a bit less snow on the lake to make navigating around a little easier. Fisky could probably shed a little more light on when the best time to fish that area is in the winter. I will typically fish south shore until mid Jan. then head north to the N.W. Angle/ Garden Island area. It's sounds like alot of fun to get everyone together for some fishing up here. It should be an official FM get together every year!

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
