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.

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!

    • dont look so puzzled, I was correcting the stuff rick posted on fm as per your request.
    • From the left or they buck you off
    • revenge... LOL     But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better?   But for almost $200 bones more for an Ice 7 than an FL18, not sure how much better.     
    • Hummingbird Ice 7.  Yes please fix anything you don't understand that may bug you! 😃
    • 3 years ago I fell for the FLX28 from a FL18 and while I like the quiet I miss the 18. The 28 has a couple advantages but it has so much worthless dump on it my 18 did everything I wanted in a flasher. I sold the 18 to a friend and there's no way he's selling it back. JMHO but that 18 was the best ever. Like others I had a chance to buy at a very low price but still question the decision. As much as I'm tired of these flasher/auger posts this one is actually more about features more than brand bashing. Also a smart post by Rick to get some traffic going. I think this is still the best ice site but wonder why so many disappeared. The rules have been relaxed too, I haven't been banned for 2 or 3 years now. My reputation has a plus sign on it!  Eyeguy, time for some underwater photography?
    • for a ice???  then instead of than??  want me to edit???  ;lol
    • I heard they work a little better on small targets. 😁 But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better? 😮
    • youtube was down last night so wasnt able to upload video. Maybe I will get it done later today.   Here is an update on harvest:  
    • leech and others, i actually thought the same exact thing, the whole screen is used up with "history", trust me, I loved my marcum flasher and did not want to give into the 2D sonar; but after swapping it out of the boat from the summer use then using it all winter, I'm sold. Like getanet posted, you can still have the flasher screen with the helix so you dont have to use the 2d sonar view. hence my argument, smartphone (with all of the gadgets, summer, winter, etc) vs flip phones (flasher only).   but I rarely use the flasher portion on my helix and opt to the 2d sonar (by the way with 2d you still get the flasher/rts window in real time) and it's history. you can adjust the size of your history and RTS window on the helix as well, and I've found to have the history useful at times as well, if you look away for instance and see a mark on the history screen, you can be fore-warned of a nearby fish, with a flasher, you get that quick flash and its gone.    it took me some coaxing just like when I didnt want to switch out of my reliable dependable flip phone to a fancy smartphone, but I'm a convert now, and I still bring my Marcum with
    • Sounds like a great trip, I'm more than a little jealous. Also a great bit of parenting.  Sounds like your son is well on his way to being a good man, well done.
