I'm Hooked!

Hi Ladies! I just got back from my first trip to Lake of the Woods and can't wait to go back. Yes, even my 6 and 9 year old survived an island and week of fishing--they're looking forward to going back too! The best part was I sent my husband and dad out with a guide muskie fishing the first day and they got hooked. I went out with them the next three days muskie fishing (they needed a navigator so they wouldn't get lost) and I even had one muskie right up to the boat, but it got off when my husband went to land it with the net. It was amazing fishing and we even caught Walleyes for two fish fries and enough to bring home for the freezer, too. If you ever get the chance to get up there, it is well worth the trip! We stayed on Oak Island on the Minnesota/Canadian border and will definitely go back to this spot instead of fishing the south side--the wilderness adventure and getting away from cars and everyday life was well worth it!

That is sooo awesome. How long does it take to run up that way. We have been talking about doing that for some time. But instead have been venturing around SW Metro trying new walleye lakes that I have found via the DNR site and these forums. I went out fishing last night in the crow river and only caught bullheads!! No wallys or cats this time.

Okay, now I am SO jealous! Someday - we have been saying that since I was a kid.

Gals,
If you get the chance, you need to make this trip! There is nothing to compare to it (unless you go to the BWCA--but canoeing is way too much work, especially when you are fishing too). It took us about 8 hours to get up there (it is still almost two hours north of Warroad to get to Youngs Bay to put in), but it was well worth it. I didn't see too many ladies up their fishing, either. I think the men think they are the only ones who enjoy full days of fishing--boy are they wrong! Anyways, if you consider going, I have suggestions of resorts to check out. I am going through fishing withdrawals and I was so grouchy the last two days that my husband was ready to leave, but it is back to reality and life in the city! Thanks for sharing in my excitement!

    • I have a 2013 ecoboost since new, now have 85,000. Starts right up.
    • 1/16 oz chartreuse forage minnow. No need for anything else.
    • Got out on local trails for a quick 60 mile ride ,,,, 3rd set of tracks on a freshly groomed trail ,,, It was like riding on a ribbon,,, Trail conditions near Duluth  are ideal with all the snow we have received,,, Ya gotta love riding during the week  
    • Demons are good!  I always have some with too.  But I usually start with a forage minnow in blue/glow.  Another I’ve learned to keep handy is a Rattling Blade Spoon.   Can’t say I have a hard go to for sunnies.  Sometimes they hit the forage minnow anyway.  But I do normally have a tungsten jig head with plastic ready to go if a good marking fish is interested but just won’t commit.
    • Oops, you’re right Del. I have deer too and feed corn to them. Birds are fighting for perches many times throughout the day. I’ve been trying to coordinate the frenzy times With those major/minor  feeding activity tables but so far not much similarity. It gets REAL crazy at times. 
    • What is everyone's favorite crappie and sunfish jig?  I always like to a have a demon jig on at least one of my rods. I have had great luck with a white body and a purple, orange or pink head. The demon has been my go to crappie jig for many winters! I also like a red/ yellow demon for sunnies.
    • Wisconsin had a series of snowfall across the entire state this week, dropping anywhere from 6 to more than a foot of snow in many locations. With Wisconsin finally completely covered with snow, this should be one of the best weekends of the season for outdoor winter recreation.Snowmobile trails have reopened through much of central Wisconsin counties and a few southern counties. Trails across the northern half of the state were good to excellent on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-country ski trails were groomed or will be by the weekend and many properties are reporting ski trail conditions are excellent or good. After several snowfalls this week, crews have been busy grooming ski trails. Many properties are reporting excellent conditions going into the weekend.Photo credit: DNRNorthern lakes are ice covered with 20-plus inches of ice. With the snowfall the lakes are heavy with snow and travel out on the ice is difficult. There have been a few diehard ice anglers out there fishing for walleye, crappie and perch with not much to show for their efforts. .
    • Careful with your spelling there, dude.  You never know who is reading.... Maybe that is why the packages seem to now all say Nyjer seed instead of niger.  😀
    • How many Deer tracks do you have around your feeders or else the squirrels are getting at it!  😉
