Good afternoon to all!|
Welcome to another edition of the Wigwam Fishermans Blog. Today we faced different weather conditions than the rest of the state of Minnesota, but the fishing was still great. Today I was informed by a few of my friends from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area that the temperature was a blistering 90 plus, while we were fighting to break 50
what gives? I guess the global warming line is right around the middle of Minnesota
ha ha. I hope all of my readers will get the opportunity to experience the nice weather within the next few days
that includes me!
Daily Fishing Report: The weather today was nice in the morning, but started getting a little breezy and we had a few scattered showers this afternoon. One of our guests couldnt believe the way the wind changes on Lake of the Woods
I think it just keeps it interesting. Weather conditions for tomorrow look like this
sunny in the morning/afternoon with some scattered thunderstorms developing late in the evening. We are supposed to get some warmer temperatures that will carry into this weekend and Memorial Day this coming Monday. Tomorrow we should see a high of 60
lets cross our fingers. My sources are telling me that the 3/8 oz and ½ oz jigs are still doing the trick
remember the fish are still on the bottom. The colors that have been working are Chartreuse and Orange or even the combination of both, you may even want to try a little Orange/Chartreuse/Gold
the bait of choice is still the frozen emerald shiners or live fat head and rainbow minnows. We are having the best success catching fish from 12 to 18 feet of water. We are fishing in Morris Bay and Four Mile Bay (right in front of the Wigwam) and having excellent success. I cant wait to get out there tomorrow evening to do some fishing
I hope that all my friends havent caught all the fish in my little honey holes. I will give you the skinny on Fridays blog on how I did
I cant wait!!!!
I will mentioned this everyday
if you are the person that is in charge of putting together your group fishing trips, please give me a call and I want to offer you a deal that you cant refuse. We want as many people as humanly possible to experience the Wigwam Resort this summer/fall/winter/spring
we are very confident that after your stay with us you wont want to try some place different next year. Our goal is to make new friends everyday
I cant wait to meet and make many new friends everyday as the years pass. Also, we have a great May Midweek Special running right now, which is, $30.00 per person per night for lodging only or $100.00 per person for one guided launch trip and one night lodging. Dont miss out on these deals
they wont last past the end of this month. For next month I am thinking about putting together a Parent/Kid discount
we need to get the kids off the X-Boxes and the Sony Play Stations. Dont get me wrong
I love technology as much as the next blogger, but I think back to my childhood and I am who I am because of what I experienced. The outdoors shape lives and I need YOUR help to get our next generation of fishermen/women involved.
My shout out today will go to Brett and Connor Maas who were guests with us this past weekend. Connor had the fight of a lifetime with a monster 50 Sturgeon. He fought the fish for over 8 minutes and did it all with a youth fishing rod and 8 lb test line. Needless to say he had a blast. I wanted to thank Brett and Connor for staying with us at the Wigwam Resort and I hope to see them back very soon. Connors catch was tapped and put on the Wigwam Resort website under the Wigwam Video tab
check it out
it will get your heart pumping and wishing that you were Connor for those 8 plus minutes. Congratulations Connor
Happy Fishing to all, and to all a good day!
