Where would you go?

23 posts in this topic

My buddy and I have spring break from March 13-22 and instead of going south, we want to go on a fishing trip for a couple of days. Where would you go and why? We were thinking either Devils lake or Lake of the Woods. Either place we would go we will need some suggestions about where to fish, stay etc. Thanks

It was either perch eyes or perch patrol that I would have gone to, but they were booked when I wanted to go. One of the only few sleepers you can rent on Devils. Going back to LOTW instead, but great prices, and worth looking at, plus, more lines!

Jason Mitchell has sleepers now on Devils Lake, but I'd go to LOW anyways.

I'd go to Canadian LOW... wait that is where I'm going for my spring break cool

If you hunt snow geese you could go to DL and make it combo trip with ice fishing and some spring snow goose hunting... might be a little early in the migration but that could be one awesome week!

I love LOW, it has always been very good to me. But, if I had the choice I might go to Devils just to give it a shot. From what I hear the big northern bite is heating up just about then and the perch are always good too.

Jumbo perch and walleye fishing is typically really good up on Devils in March. That would be my choice.

i will myself never waste my time going back to devils last march i went for 4 days and caught 4 fish what a joke, i think the lake is fished out the perch patrol was having no luck either they actually took some people to some other near by lake to catch northerns so i would say go to the lake of the woods

My buddies and I used to head north as well for our Spring breaks while in college. LOW was always our destination and I've never experienced ice fishing as good as we had it then. Hundred fish days were the norm and we never needed to dole out extra $$$ for the use of a guide service (Perch Patrol etc...). We always brought our own gear and fished wherever we wanted which saved us alot of cash also. This was 20 years ago, but LOW would still be my choice.

Devils Lake has been steady all season this year. I have yet to get skunked on walleyes and from what I hear the perch have really picked up lately. I can't wait for March. When the weather starts to warm up many people quit fishing. You can have the whole lake basically to yourself during some of the best fishing of the year: Late ice.

    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
