Recommended Posts

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.

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
