Good job on the name!!!!
Talked to a co-worker that went out off the S-curves south of Washburn last week before the rain . He said that there was 4-5 inches but it was pretty hairy because it was windy.
He said it was pretty slow only 4 flags and nothing on jigging.Hopefully myself I will beable to get out there after the holidays.

good luck!

FLAGG!!!!

OK, you got me there.

What in the world are the "s-curves" South of Washburn? I fished around Washburn in the summer and fall, but never saw or heard of anyone refer to an "s-curve" before.

Robert,

Great to see ya here. Probably won't be up for ice( not cause I don't want to-- would love to try for the splake and browns ), but I WILL be up in May and/or June for the smallies and would appreciate any info, even though local bait stores and guides do a great job of posting elsewhere on the net.

Even so, keep posting on the ice --- I might not be able to fight the urge to come up.

I would like to come up and fish the bay for smallmouth and walleye. I hear there is a pretty nice motel there in Ashland to stay at. What would be the best plan of action? Go to the bait shops and ask around? Any tips as to timing would be appreciated. Good fishing.

Lots of motels in Ashland. The pretty nice one will probably run you 2 bills a night though-- not including wine and cheese. Was up there last June and it seems there's a price war midweek. Curvecrest had a sign out advertising $29.99 for a double bed. Looked nice enough and I'll be checking it out this May. Last year we camped north of Drummond to save some money-- about 30 min. from Asland depending on how many roadsides you stop at smile.gif.

Hey robert492 when those perch wont bite drop a 100th oz white glow jig down tipped with a spike and see what they do.
When we leave Club 13 and drive north the highway is always nothing but s curves.

Robert or anyone else on the board. I will be coming up to the bay the weekend of the 25th. I've never ice-fished it before, and am looking for someone to answer the tons of questions I have. My email is [email protected]

    • just saw it yesterday in Alex..darn good stuff too!!!
    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around. 
    • I did a search ans it seems a shortage happens once in a while. That search came from 2013 and it was the same problem. Hope it just a temporary thing because it makes such great toast.
    • I see it all the time at Cub. They had a big sale on it Sunday night - maybe they were trying to get rid of it.
