Recommended Posts

Just thought id start this to see what trips make each of your juices flow. These are the trips we all look forward to the most and why.

My personal is Lake of The Woods and i have my first trip booked for the first week of January. Me and my Bro go as well as some of my close friends and it an annual trip we take no matter whats happening, we have been going for over 20 years and it never gets any less exciting than the very first time.

Red River Canada...sumo Walleyes...anytime...starting about X-mass.

Lake Winnipeg Sumo Walleye...anytime....after the ice is ready to roll on.

SE ND Sumo Perch....soon...I hope.

Red River sumo Walleye, USA....eventually, but it will be a while and tricky stuff here this season I'm afraid due to high water.

Lake of the Woods for me. However I really don't have many other trips to other lakes to compare, other than the local lakes. Always a good time up there.

The trip that I look forward to every year is the one we take between Christmas through new years. The whole family meets at the parents place on Lake Edward outside of Brainerd. It’s a week of fishing with the whole family. All the kids, brother in-laws and the old man. We run a base station out of the perm and we run all over in the portables. The best part is watching the young ones get into fishing and wanting to be out on the ice with us instead of staying in and playing the Wii. Last year the three older boys 12 -13 spent their first night out in the fish house alone and they even managed to catch some fish now they call northern pike the devil fish as they had one small one come through and collect all the lines it took about an hour but they got fishing again and were rewarded with some eyes.

It dosnt seem to matter if the weather is good or not or how well the fish are hitting there is a constant stream of kids coming out to the ice and then back to the house to warm up.

It’s a great time every year and I always count the days down for that trip more than any other.

Might not even happen this year, Ed... frazzle ice by the looks of it and high & fast current frown. If/when it freezes, it's gonna' be ugly & "tricky" eek. I'd recommend a 6 oz. jig and drilling a transducer hole 20 feet downstream sick.

Remember the last time we had frazzle ice confused???

Ontario lake trout first week in January and first week in February! I don't think there is any funner fishing out there!

Late ice perch on Leech and Winnie is also a good time.

Toughguy, where on the Gunflint do you fish for Lakers?? My Brother and I go up the Gunflint on our way to Quetico quite often and have always wanted to find a good Laker hole.

LOW first week of Jan., Rocky Point for us the last 2 years, seems to be better walleyes on the reefs. Can't wait. Local pond 1 mile from home most days, 100A's but decent gill and crappie. Have fun, be safe and good fishing.

Rainy lake is my new top choice and can't get here soon enough. Haven't booked yet but hopefully be up there a couple times this winter. Hoping to hit URL once or twice this winter also. Bring on the ice. Love those trips up north to any lake for that matter. Always beautiful scenery and excellent fishing.

Lake of the Woods second weekend of January, and any trips back to Bemidji! Have some friends in the Grand Rapids area now, so a trip there is something I'm hoping to do! Also getting to a few tourneys this year (Maybe Eelpout Fest and the Brainerd Jaycees event)

Every year...though it ranges from mid-January to mid-February...a bunch of us rent a cabin up on Big Winnie for a few days. Always a blast.

Late ice pike fishing at Woody's resort on the beautiful Rainy Lake. Some of the best big pike fishing anywhere. Woody knows the lake well and could get one pointedd in the right direction.

We will have to line up a trip b4 we go to Rainy on Memorial weekend Craig.

My dad and I go to Grand Rapids and try as many little lakes as we can fit in. The "can't miss" fall-back is Jay Gould Lake. It is always good for lots of pike (mostly small to moderate) and big perch.

The rest of the lakes we hit rarely have another fisherman on them.
