LOTW,Whitefishbay,Crowlake fishing report

Recommended Posts

Jan 1st started our first week of ice fishing. The lake trout on Crow Lake are in 50 feet suspended at 20-30 feet. Cannon glow tubes are working the best. There is enough snow, no slush can get just about anywhere. We have had groups go out to Rowan, Caviar, Cameron, Whitefish Bay and LOTW and the fishing has been great.

Any current reports?

I've heard spoons and sonar type lures have been producing well.

How are the snow depths on Crow? Any slush to deal with?

Headed up that way on the 16th for 2.5 days of troutin'.

Hoping the weather and conditions will be better than last year at that time.

Tons of slush on the lake and bitter cold temps/wind forced us to fish out of our portables instead of running and gunning.

Thanks!

Good luck and enjoy your time up there. I haven't been up in over a month so starting to go through withdrawals!

Reports are always welcomed whistle

Will do!

Looks like temps in single digits above zero for highs. Not great but could be a lot worse.

Hoping for some sun and little/no wind and we should still be able to run and gun, instead of setting up the portables and hunkering down.

We experienced 4-5 inches of snow last night 2-10-2015. There is about 12-13 inches total snow on LOTW, Whitefishbay and Crow Lake. There will be more snow in your deep bays with some slush, so always be aware of where you stop your sled. There is about 20-24 inches of ice on the lakes, with the additional snow I would suggest using an extention on Whitefish Bay.There will be more snow in different areas because of drifting.

Fishing hasn't been as successful as early January. One group did well off of steep rock in 70 feet depths. Others found fish in the mud flats in 20 feet. We are still using the same old lures as the past few years. 4inch white and glow tubes, the Sebile vibrato greenie is still doing well. If you want to try something new, I would look for anything that vibrates in pink, for trout fishing.

Crappie fishing has been really good this year, in town off of Gordies and out at Hay island. If I find out any more details on where the trout are I will share that information. But Caviar, Rowan and Whitefish have all been difficult to fish the past few weeks with fish at all different depths. I guess they call this fishing, I would be prepared to try anything and everything.

I will do my best to help you out,the more successful you are makes us look good, so I am not holding back any information. Good Luck and I will see you on the hard water.

Just got back from 2 1/2 days of laker fishing on Kakagi.

Even with the cold temps, we kept on the move and put a half dozen 3-6lb lakers on the ice.

Vertical presentations wouldn't hardly get a look, but horizontal presentations were the way to go as long as there was some "meat" on the hook. Set lines w/ a large dead minnow only produced 1 fish.

Tubes, Northland Airplane jigs, and Clackin' Rap type lures were the producers.

Best depths were 40-60'. Every spot we tried had fish on it.

About knee deep snow on most of the lake and we only found one slush pocket.

Wishin' the temps would have been better but we dressed for the weather, so we barely fished out of the portable.

Thinking of giving it a go again at the end of June on the open water.

    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?
