Well boys you did wonders for my buddies bacholar party, we went out and caught a couple of fish and everyone was happy thanks to you guys. It looks like we are going to try and find them again but on the hard water. Are the same spots good in the winter? And is oragne still the deadly color in the winter or id there another lure I should look for? Also I have never been out on the ice there and I am wondering if there are any bad ice spots I need to make sure and avoid? Thaks again for any help you can give me. Good luck on the ice!!!

well, my brother and I were there two weekends ago, 2 feet of ice, everywhere we went. We tried all the summer spots, nothing, nada, the only fish we caught was a perch in 30 feet of water. Had something big on the tip up between the two islands Northwest of Stout's island. the ridge is about 10 feet deep with 30 feet not too far from there. Saw a couple guys on the humps straight out from the campground. There are not many permanents out there, not much evidence of anglers either. My brother and I just started looking for places where someone might have fished before, it didn't work too well. we didn't fish south of stouts island, that is our goal in early june, to actually fish south of stouts island. The lake is a little clearer in the winter so I am not sure orange is the key. check with the lady at the bait shop in Minkana, she sounded helpful, it was just the fish that weren't cooperating.

Good luck, bring along some beverages, you might need them

Oh yeah, remember WI has 3 lines in the water during the winter, I would suggest putting out 2 tip ups for each guy and fishing in one hole in the house

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota walleye are being caught at a variety of depths with 24-27’ being the most consistent. Glow red with gold has been a hot combo this week. Rattle baits continue to draw active fish to our houses. Sauger activity has been very strong, providing Anglers the opportunity for full limits before new regulations take effect on March 1st. New limit regulations give a combination of six walleye/sauger with no more than 4 walleye. The slot of 19.5”-28 must be immediately release with one walleye over 28’ to be allowed in possession.

      Canadian crappies are still filling buckets and freezers, they can be found near the bottom in 32-35ft. Super light tackle and willingness to keep trying different jig combinations is producing the most fish.  Many tulibee are being seen this week, which make for a tasty treat out of the smoker.  Walleye fishing continues to be very good in traditional areas, depth at 23-28ft. 

      Snow depth in our areas is between 2 and 2.5 ft. Trails are in great condition after last weeks snow and wind conditions. 

      Until next week, 
      Sunset Lodge
    • I must be mad at math, honestly we just lost 4 in a row and weren't good before that and yet we cling to 8th place. We can't even tank right and get a better draft pick. 
    • Borsch posted a reminder in the st cloud forum, so I wont take credit for being johnny on the spot but in 13 days you'all need to get a new fishing license.
    • I put a call into the Wisconsin DNR, they said March 1st license will be available.
    • good for you guys leech!!  and a darn good lookin family too!!!  being blessed like that is darn good!!!
    • What do you mean they are still in a playoff spot. Come on think positive! At least wait until they get done playing the blues today before you start to sing the blues. 
    • Tried to purchase the D season Wisconsin tag i was drawn for yesterday. Clerk said try again at the end of March, any truth to that? I will call the Wisconsin DNR on Tuesday (holiday tomorrow).
    • Well put in a few miles with the grandkids and daughter by Orock MN on Sat.  Trails were pretty nice but there were lots of sleds out and I'm sure they will be pretty beat up by the end of the weekend! Little guys had a great time driving and riding in the sleigh. Hot chocolate and cookies are always a good ride break warmer! Fun day, God has blessed me well.
