Brule Narrows navigating

3 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

Looking at heading east on our 44-foot houseboat late July through Brule Narrows. Just received my Hot Spots map and it looks like the Narrows could be tricky. How difficult is it navigating through the Narrows? Also, are there particular spots on the east side U.S. that are great tie-up spots for families (ie sandy, good swimming, etc..) THANKS AGAIN!!

Most of the Narrows isn't tricky at all. The hardest part is on the upstream side/east end of the narrows where you have to make a couple 90's, but even that is not too bad. I have driven many houseboats through those narrows, and they are not as intimidating as they appear, just take it slow and you'll be fine.

As far as a good place to park the boat once you are through the narrows. Saginaw Bay, Kempton Channel, and Big Island are home to many nice sand beach houseboat sites. Finding one that is open on the other hand, can be a little trickier.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

We have gone thru several times and it is several sharp turns but not real tricky. Go slow and watch the bouys.

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
