Ice Conditions Crow Lake 02/07/2016

It has been warm weather lately and has brought us a couple inches of snow over the last few nights. Crow Lake has about 6 inches now on it and up to 16 inches of solid ice all across. It is about the same on Whitefish Bay. Some areas of slush on Whitefish but all around good conditions. Crow Lake has been producing lake trout a little better than Whitefish from my prospective but usually picks up mid February early March. Crappies and walleyes are fantastic in town but you have to get off the beaten path.

1-26-2016 Crow Lake and Sabaskong LOTW. Fish On!!

FISH ON!
FISH ON!

The best trout fishing has been at 30 feet or less. We have had success using a 3 1/2- 4 inch Glow tube. Crappies fishing has been the best at Shrumms’s on Sabaskong Bay. Looking forward to seeing everyone for the Crow Lake Classic this weekend. We are still able to use 4-wheelers.

See you on the hard water

There is about 1-2 feet of snow in the woods to be able to get to the back lakes. Trout fishing has been doing great. LOTW has 6-8 inches of ice, some slush, crappie fishing has been fantastic. We have been doing the best going out through Shrum’s Cyclone. We have openings for this next week Jan 18-31 gives a call at 1-877-228-2076.

Crow Lake Ice Classic

Muskie Bay Resort & FishingMinnesota.com present the Crow Lake Ice Classic. January 28-31, 2016.

Want a REAL winter adventure? Come join us in Nestor Falls, Ontario at Muskie Bay Resort and fish the famous waters of Lake of the Woods, Crow Lake and surrounding lakes for lake trout, crappies, perch and everything else this area has to offer.This American Plan trip leaves nobody hungry and the local guides will be bringing us to all the hot spots.

As a group we will decide what we want to do but the basic plan will be as follows:
Show up on Thursday and fish or get your gear ready. Supper will be provided. Friday and Saturday we will get up and have a quick breakfast and hit the water early. Lake Trout will be the primary target early in the day on Crow Lake or it’s surrounding lakes. Conditions will dictate how far we will be able to travel. We will come in for a hot lunch and then head to Lake of the Woods for an afternoon of Crappie fishing. At dark we will come in and have a hot supper. Saturday we will enjoy some of what we have caught and will have fish for supper. Sunday morning we will fish and then head home.

You will need a snowmobile or 4-wheeler (depending on snow/ice/slush conditions—snowmobile is preferred), a portable fish house (like a Fish Trap or similar), electronics (flasher like a Vexilar or Hummingbird), heater/propane, ice scoop, warm clothes with waterproof boots (temps can get to less than –40F and have very slushy conditions) and the following recommended fishing tackle:

Lake Trout: Clam Outdoors Dave Genz Split Handle Rods in 40” Heavy or 36“ Medium Heavy or similar, Shimano 2000 to 3000 size spinning reel, P-line FluoroIce 10#, ice rod case, #10 barrel swivels, 3/8oz tube jigs and 3”to 4“ tubes in white-ish or glow colors, blade baits like Heddon Sonars and a pliers.

Crappies/Perch: Bring your favorite ultra-light set up but also bring a lighter walleye combo as you can target the larger fish by upsizing to baits like Hali 25mm, #2 Jigging Rapalas, smaller Northland Buck-Shot Rattle Spoons, etc. Tipping baits with plastics like Little Atom or other small plastics works well.

The price for the Crow Lake Ice Classic is $450 USD. Taxes not included. To book your trip, contact Paul & Chris Trinkner at Muskie Bay Resort at 1-877-228-2076  A $100 deposit is required.
