I love to fish but have little time since the birth of my son December 1, 2002. I have been on the ice once since he was born. I live near Elk River. However my wife and son will be spending a week in San Francisco January 15-21. I intend to do some serious fishing. Anyone have any recommendations for someone that wants to make the best of their limited time to be a serious fisherman? Thanks..

I have to agree with LOW. My wife is originally from the area (IFalls) and in the insurance biz. One of her clients owns a resort on LOW and lets us use a fishhouse with supplies for $10 a weekend (good friends=good perks and it doesn't hurt that her dad is a fishing guide up there). Man is the walleye bite incredible! Can't stop icing those guys when they're hungry.

So the wife and kids are gone for a couple of days. What Time should I come over and should I bring the beer or steaks? wink.gif

I sounds like this may be your only trip of the year, so I will follow along with the rest and say LOW.

Hey Erik!
LOW. You'll catch more fish in a day or two there than you would in a whole winter on Martin.

Make a trip to LOW, and don't forget to spend an evening on URL. You just can't beat them. LOW has some of the best trophy 'Pout fishing you'll ever find!!

If this looks to be your only ice fishin of the season, . . . I would find someone to feed the horse, and what ever else needs to be done at home, and head to L.O.W.

Thanks all. Appears to be unanimous LOW. I may be tied down locally being I have horses that need to be fed. Any suggestion 1 hour within Elk River?

Maybe not this year but I am going to the lake of the Woods. You guys make it sound like you catch so many fish that you get sore.

    • They do some crazy things. I recall last year a grouse would follow a atv around everytime the person would drive into the birds home area.
    • Maybe, but they are only about 5 feet long fully extended. Also, mine has the side slide outs, not the front and back so there isn't much room for anything near the door. But maybe it was for something smaller over the door. I will investigate further this evening. 
    • Well, as I posted in the hummingbirds thread (and now hereby update) still hummers in Rochester and robins too.   The hummers were at the feeder this morning and three or 4 robins on the lawn.  Also had chickadees, nuthatches and a few various finches at the seed feeder.    
    • I'm pretty sure they are for the outside awning.  Go to site below.  Click on 1979 brochures.  Then click on page 07.  It shows a camper with two poles holding up an awning. That may be why the flat bottom piece.      http://www.popupcamperhistory.com/bethanyimages.html  
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Lake of the Woods water temps are steadily falling into the mid to low 50’s. This past week cold fronts and strong winds have fish schooling up and feeding heavily.

      In Minnesota, look to rocky bays and adjacent reefs in 15-22ft. of water.  A jig and minnow is all that is needed to catch a limit in a short period of time. Bottle necks between islands in the NW Angle are also worth fishing in the evenings.
       
      In Canada, the fishing has been excellent.  Crappie, walleye and perch are all schooling up and taking a jig and minnow.  With the water temperatures dropping, expect to see the muskie bite increase while trolling. 

      We will be closing October 22nd for ice in! Contact us for availability for your fall fishing trip!

      We hope to see you soon,
      Sunset Lodge
    • I was bow hunting this weekend and had 3 flush out from under my stand.  One of them came back later on and tried to get me out of the tree.  It dove at me several times.  I had to take my hat off and smack it before it finally decided to give up.  Never had a bird do that and wouldn't have guessed a grouse would have been the culprit. 
    • No, there were other poles for that.
    • Sounds like I’m right on track. I’ll just get everything I need now. Think I’ll wait till next spring for engine oil but I’ll do front and rear diffs now as well as the tranny. I’ll grease everything to that hasen’t been done for a while. For the front diff change did you need to pull the front tire off like the maual says to? Not going to lie that manual is pretty fauge.
