Cabin 2's great weekend!

28" Northern

                                                          1/2 day's catch
                                          Is there a Prize for the smallest fish!?!

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Well, Larry just got done drilling holes to measure the ice... There's 12-14" of good solid ice.  Closer to shore it's 12 & out further its 14".  People have started driving out cars, jeeps, and 1/2 ton trucks.  We have about 2-3" of snow, so people are able to get around easily.  The perch bite has been steady in about 10' of water.  We are also seeing some at 15-18' as well.  Some of our guests said they missed a few walleye this morning.  Most people are using a jig and a minnow, with some dead sticking.  The weather seems to be holding steady for the next week or more so the bite should continue to be pretty good.

Ice update... Blackduck still has about 10-11" of ice.  We havent' made any real progress on thickness this week, but at least we've held steady!  We were hoping to be driving out trucks this weekend, but we are NOT recommending it at this point!  Fishing has also stayed the same, with perch, northerns & a few walleye being caught during daylight hours, the bite has pretty much shut down at night, but you never know, that could change anytime!

Weekend update!

Weekend Update!  The ice stayed about the same over the weekend.  But with cooler temps forecasted for this week, we should be driving on by next weekend!  Friday was a good day bite, and Saturday the perch were biting all day long with the front moving in.  We've seen just about every species of fish caught this weekend, including an eelpout!  Guys have been fishing in 10' of water, just on the edge of the weedline, with fat heads & crappie minnows.  A couple crappies were caught in the deeper water.

2 ice houses on & counting!

We now have 2 ice houses on!  When Larry drilled the holes today, he was pleasantly supprised to find 11" of ice now.  Our customer's have been catching Jumbo perch & some Northerns... Still waiting for the eye's to turn on.

Thursday, May 24, 2012

The eye's keep on biting!  They are catching some durring the day, but the best bite remains just before dark until midnight or so.  This picture is from today.. 5/24/12

Opener 2012

                                         What a start to fishing!  The crappie are biting too!

Early Opener Update

It looks as if the Mom's amendment will not be passing.  I talked with someone from the Senate, and they informed me that because of the colder temps last week, they have decieded not to pass the early opener.  The DNR was concerned about the spawn, and they said to "protect" the fish, they are not in favor of the Mom's Amendment anymore.

Mom's Amendment Update

I just got off the phone again with the Senate.  The Mom's Amendment is wrapped up in the House Bill # 2171.  At the earliest they will be voting on it Tues morning the 17th, but hopefully by Wed the 18th.  They said they had an informational meeting on it this morning & things have changed a bit with the cooler temps we have seen over the last week or two.  Once it were to pass senate, it would still have to be approved by the Governor. Stay tuned!!! 

PS, Mom's Amendment is... an amendment trying to move fishing opener to May 5th this year only.


                                                 Winter or Spring?! Oh Yeah! Minnesota!!! :0)

New addition!

We just finished our new cappuccino & hot chocolate station!  :0) for us cappuccino drinkers!

Early Opener

The Facts of the "Mom's Amendment"!  There has been many rumors about the early fishing opener, so to set them all straight, I called the House & Senate.  The facts are: The House has passed the Mom's Amendment.  It is wrapped up in another agenda and waiting for the Senate to approve.  The Senate is "out" until next April 16, next Monday.  The House thinks they will adress it in the first part of the week, but not sure.  If it passes the Senate, then the Governor has to also approve it. 

As you can see, this is not something we will know for sure for awhile yet.  I plan on keeping up with the Senate everyday next week & will update our blog as to the outcome!  Stay tuned!!

On another note!  We are gearing up for opener, whenever that shall be! :0)  We will be ready for either one!  If opener is moved to May 5th, we will have cabins 4, 5, 9 & 11 open for the new opener.  If opener stays on the 12th, we only have cabin 5 open.  If you are interested in a cabin for either weekend, please call me to be put on the list!

Yet another Ice Update!

Hello Fishermen & women!
   Well, yesterday we were getting pretty nervous that our precious ice was going away too fast!  We had a bunch of rain & snow melt yesterday.  Larry drove our suburban out early evening to get our ice house off.  We still have 23" of ice, but there are small areas opening up where the rain & snowmelt drained into the lake.  Our access is still open for business, but there is some water on shore.  With the forecasted temps for this week, we are thinking bring ATV's for this weekend!  We just had a group go out from here with a full sized truck and they did fine, because everything re-froze last night.  We have a hot spot for the perch again finally!  It has been a long couple of weeks waiting to find those perch!  They came back into the shallows again!  Stayed tuned & I'll let ya know how our guys do!

Snow, Ice & Fish Update

Well, we never got the snow they were talking about, either time! :0(  As for lake conditions... We have just enough snow on the lake to make it a bugger to get around with 4X4 trucks.  We have plowed out several roads now to make it alot easier for our customers. :0)  There's still 20+" of good solid ice, haven't gained much, but haven't lost any either.  Fishing: Walleye & northerns are biting better now than ever, too bad it's not season!  We've seen more walleye since season closed than all winter! Perch, they were biting really good in 5-7' of water until about 2 weeks ago.  Then they moved out & the walleye & northerns moved in.  We have had a hard time locating the big schools of the Jumbo perch, but we're not giving up!  This is about the time of year where they turn on like crazy!  Afterall, we are known for our Jumbo Perch in March!!  We have a warm front coming in this week & I'm thinking the bite should pick up really good!  Stay tuned for updates!!

Gearing up for the last walleye weekend!

Well, we had a pretty good weekend.  There was a variety of fish caught, including a "big one" walleye, that got away!  We've seen several smaller walleye over the weekend as well.  We got about 3-4" of snow last night.

Oh! The fishing contest is a go!  The officials drilled holes yesterday & we they said we have 24", so it's a go on Saturday!  There's another cold front pushing in the end of this week, with chances of snow off & on.

Fishing Update

Lake update: Larry has finally gotten the time to get out to fish this afternoon!  They got out about noon and the perch are biting good!  They are catching 9-12" ones.  The ice is still a good 20" thick.  We had some guests here this last weekend, but they all fished Red Lake & did quite well.

The walleye that didn't get away!

So Larry & I went on a "date" this afternoon, ice fishin'! Larry caught a walleye, as he was pulling it up the hole, it got off! So what does any good fishermen do? He goes after it! He threw his pole down and in went his arm, coat & all! He didnt feel the fish, so he started to pull his arm out... as he did, he noticed the walleye was stuck to his arm! It then slid between the ice & the bottom of the ice house! This video is Larry retrieving his precious walleye! :0)
Well, one of our ice houses did pretty good, on perch, all day yesterday.  That house is in 7' of water.  They also caught 1 walleye.  We had some guys fish Blackduck late morning, they got a few fish, then hopped over to a couple smaller lakes & they caught some sunnies.  So all in all, fish are biting!

Saturday, January 28, 2012

The perch bite slowed a bit over the last couple of days, Northens activity picked up, with 26" being the biggest caught, which is a really nice fish! Haven't heard yet this week what the walleye are doing.. We had that front push through & dump all that snow, that always seem to mess with the bite... We have lots of fishermen & women out right now! Stayed tuned!!

Friday, January 27, 2012

Snow update! We've gotten about 5-6" already this morning!
Plenty of snow now for SNOWMOBILING!!!!!!!
Finally! Winter has arrived! A couple months late, but at least it's here!! :0)

We are in a winter weather advisory! 2-5" of snow expected today.  We have already gotten at least an inch! Big huge flakes! We might just have enough snow now for some good snowmobiling!! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! :0)

Monday, January 23, 2012

The perch continue to bite! There's been a couple 24" northerns caught.  We have about 17" of ice.  5" of snow came yesterday.  And the water is still clear!  That sums it all up! :0) 

The Fireman's Fishing Derby (contest) is Feb. 25th at noon here on the lake.

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Good News!! The bite on the jumbo perch is fantastic right now!!!  We have 2 cabins that kept over 80 jumbo perch yesterday!!  You would never guess that at this time of year, they would be in 5' of water! But they are!  Another cabin got onto northerns & a couple walleye.  The water is still very clear, and with how cold it is, ice should be growing at a good rate again! It's going to be a good weekend! :0)

Picture of walleye

We are experiementing with our new blog..... Sign up to be notified of our updates!

Monday jan 16, 2012

Welcome to our new Blog! Please bear with us as we figure this bolgging thing out! :0)

Some of our guys did really good yesterday on the Jumbo Perch. Others did ok, but got onto a couple walleye. A few days ago a couple guys saw some of our HUGE sunfish, and caught 1! Our sunnies are about the size of a dinner plate! The northerns are always eagar to bite. The water is still pretty clear down to 10-15'. Ice remains to be good, everyones driving trucks out now. The next few days are to be bitterly cold, with some snow coming this weekend. Tip of the day... Be prepared: put new line on your poles! Ya don't want "the big one" to get away! Old line becomes brittle & can snap, just ask Larry! :0)
