Feb 24, 2015 Little “BREEZY” out here again today!


Little “BREEZY” out here again today!

Update on Ice Conditions and Fish Bite Feb. 12, 2015

The fishing did get better over the last 2 days.  The new location did not pan out as well as we had hoped.  Moving Sleepers again today.

In the new location there were one real nice 24 inch Walleye got.  Some nice 14 – 16 inch walleye and sauger.   The fishing picked up

in our other location where we have 4 of the 6 Sleepers.  We are moving our all the Sleepers together today and the Day Houses will

be spread out to 3 different locations today and tomorrow.

Fish report:  Sleeper’s total for the last couple days, all 6 Sleepers, was about 70 fish.  Not all were kept!  Just kind of a total from

visiting with each of our guests.

Ice Conditions.  We are dealing with the pressure break and that is going pretty good.  Thank-goodness for the Dozer.  That had helped so much

this year!!  We did get about 4 more inches of snow.  The wind has been pretty strong and the lake access road has been plugged up pretty good.

They are plowing at least to Gull Rock today!  A few vehicles stuck out there due to snow and wind.

We will keep you posted!!!  Stay tuned.

Fish bite continues to be slow enough where Dale is thinking enough is enough!

We are moving again.  This will be our 8th move just trying our best to stay on fish.

So many say “It’s fishing, not catching” and we so appreciate those that view slow fishing as such.

However, it is our ultimate goal to keep our ice houses on fish.

We can honestly say that each guest has caught fish with every stay.  Fact is it is unusually slow fishing this year.

We had a camera down at the bottom again yesterday.  It was 2 p.m. and saw nothing.  What we did see was

these little “penguin” looking bugs everywhere just swimming around, laying on the bottom, just tooling around.

Didn’t appear that they are any type of food source for the fish.  Watched for some time showing no fish!

During the week we had fairly good luck.  Had 4 slot fish and some nice perch.  Our guest that just checked out, 2 Dad’s and 2 Children,

had 9 or 10 fish for supper last night.  Nothing like eating a fish right from the lake to the frying pan.


Today we are moving all the Ice Houses we can.  Mike, Dale’s Brother, and his friend Gary, fished 4 different spots yesterday, working and cheking in with Dale all day.  They finally had good luck in the

the final spot he tried.  Found us our new home!!!


We sure appreciate the help of our family and friends who come up here and help us in any and every way they can.

Such good, good people!  We love you all!

Fishing Report and Ice Conditions 1/17/2015

Fishing Report!

Continues to be Fair. Yesterday was not a very good day, however, we had a group of 7 guys here that stayed with us 2 Days/1 Night and went home with 42 Fish! They had a blast and took home fish for a big fish fry last night!!! Way to go guys!  We also had one of our guests bring in a 29 1/2 inch Walleye at 6:30 pm last night!  That one is going on the wall!!!
I fished the 2 man out a little further North with nothing to show for it and that very well could be because it was too late in the day. Today we will be fishing in the 2 man all day and see what will happen. We also moved one of our Day Houses out there further N. Two different locations near a different reef.

See what happens today as the Barometer has falling to 29.31 which is great. It has been over 30 for the last week.
My Dad fished everyday on Middle Cullen every winter. That is the Fish House I have at home that will someday be here at Lake of the Woods. He strongly believed and watched the barometer and that is what he taught me so this girl believes too!! Today let’s catch some fish the BP is in our favor!!!!
Here Fishy Fishy!!!!

Ice Conditions!
Well we had a nice road out to the sleepers and then again the wind picked up came from a different direction then the weather report and basically filled the road up again. So B12’ing it out with our guests today. Expecting more snow today or tomorrow.

Well folks have a super day and catch you again soon!!!

Fishing remains fair to slow over this past couple weeks.  Consistent however, the fish are going in the bucket.

Just had a group of 4 go home with 3 limits which was very exciting to hear.

Yesterday, Jan. 10th, Dale and I set up our little 2 man scouting house out in the mud about 30 feet.

I stayed out there for 4 hours in the afternoon and only had two bright red marks come through suspended.

Went after it but had no luck.  At least now I know there is no fish in that area.  So off to my next pick for

checking out if the fish are hiding over in this spot!!!

Moving three Sleepers today a little further NW of where we currently are located.

Here Fishy, Fishy!!!!

Stay tuned with our next fishing report in the next week.


Fishing Update

The fish bite remains slow.  Checked in with all our guests this morning and looking at 2 -3 fish per house.  Not such a good morning bite today.

We did get quite a bit of snow through the night and the B12 is out on the lake this A.M.

Out scouting around for fish this morning and through out the day.  See if we can see what is going on.  Moved one Sleeper yesterday and will be moving Sleepers tomorrow after we see

what today brings.
