Lake of the Woods = Lake of Slush!!!

Conditions are tough right now on Sunset Country lakes but the fishing is still pretty good!  All the snow combined with warm temperatures last week created significant slush on most waters, though things are starting to tighten up again now that it's cooled back off. 

The boys (Chad, Herm, Bernie and Todd) had good walleye fishing yesterday afternoon at the permanent house out on Lake of the Woods.

Mexico Fishing Adventures

I was able to get away last week for a trip to Mexico to attend the wedding of my friends Charlotte Rosewarne and Adam Bachynski.  The trip went great, wedding was good and the weather was solid.  There were a number of "fish-heads" on this trip and we managed to get out on the saltwater a few days while we were there.  The fishing was very good for a number of species...

A nice-sized Jack Crevalle caught on a #14 X-Rap.  Scott used this bait the entire trip and there was not of it left when he retired it at the end of the trip. 

A big red snapper that fell for a #12 X-Rap.  Aren't the colours beautiful on these things!

Not sure what kind of fish this guy is but I caught it on a Northland Live-Forage Minnow Trap.  It probably only weighed like 5 pounds but thing took like 10 minutes to land on my bass tackle. 

Scott caught two of these fish at the same time on his big X-Rap - they were schooled up just like smallmouths!

A large amber jack - hard fighting critter!

successful wolf hunters!!!

Devin Delange and Randy Niewenhuis from South Dakota are two happy wolf hunters.  They scored these beauties earlier this week. 

The guys were sitting in Double Bull ground blinds with portable Buddy heaters inside.  For all the gear you need for any hunting situation, check out  It is where I get all my hunting equipment from.  -Gussy


Wolf pictures

In between ice fishing, a couple buddies and I do a few wolf hunts in the Sunset Country region.  Here are a couple shots from the past week.  I have a few guys up hunting right now, so check back later in the week for a report.

 This picture was taken a couple days ago when it was REALLY COLD so the quality has been affected a little bit.  These two photos are of a really big, black wolf. 

This guy found himself a little treat.   


Ice Fishing Season is here!!!!

My buddy Jay Samsal and went out for quick fish late yesterday afternoon and ran into some beautiful Lake of the Woods walleyes.  A few eating sized fish and a few big ones which were released.
