Kind of a kick to the jugular with that beautiful 8-10" of white stuff however, did quite well out of long point bringing home 20 over 14" between saugers and eyes nothing big though. Heard good luck coming three miles out of morris point. Good luck with the lodging try the walleye inn.

thanks jigemup.
yes, we have have shacks lanterns heaters poles and everything, but we are used to small lakes and a few dont ice fish much at all. so we need some general help as far as depths, lures, baits, presentations, structure, times, etc.
thanks

Gophish: Click on the Lake of the Woods site. Some good info there on lures and depths, as well as area's to fish that were mentioned here. gold is good, Buckshot Rattle, Kazmaster, pink/white Angel Eye jr. plain gold hooks, red hooks. Don't be afraid to switch things up.

Lodging could be tough. Baudette Motel is decent, but you may want to jump to the Resort Locator and start calling. They do have cancellations and you might luck out there. We stay at Riverbend which is just before Wheelers Point. Decent luck two weeks ago, and I headed back on 1/19. Have a great time you should have a ball. Good luck, and hang on. Bill

Gophish,
We went out of Zipple Bay last Friday and Saturday. All the hotels were filled up in Baudette and Warroad so we ended up staying just across the border at the Road Runner Motel. I think it was only $50 for a room. Make sure you guys have a vehicle that can get through some snow if it gets windy out there. Good luck and have some fun!

    • 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.
