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!

    • I gave up trying to watch it. I think the guys dog filmed it with a Go-pro strapped to his head. 
    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
