Lake of The Woods problems are not because of Nav or Lake Master GPS Chips/maps.
I believe LOTW current problems are due to a few things commercial netting, fairly heavy pressure and a down turn in the natural reproduction of the lake, this all adds up to the current slot limits which should hopefully help bring the fishery back to acceptable standards.
I just booked an ice fishing trip at Long Point Resort on LOW. How slow has the ice fishing been the last couple of years? Any recommendations on alternate locations would be appreciated. We're coming for the UP of Michigan, so it wouldn't break my heart if we ended up going to a closer lake. Thanks!
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
