Couple of Questions?

2 posts in this topic

I am making my first soft water trip to URL in way to many years. It will be during the week. Where would be the best access to put in at? Is their anytime that is better than others? Any ideas of where a person should start? I have lakemaster and have some ideas, but having not been there in such a long time, would prefer not to waste a lot of time looking. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

We just launched out of WestWinds this past Thursday, and we're glad we did!

An east/west oriented lake with prevailing westerlies and an east-shore launch all make for an interesting go of things from the launch out. WestWinds has a protected harbor, which made all the difference.

The nice part about it was that there's bait, advice, and calm waters in the harbor; all of which made it much easier to get onto the lake. Also, some good rock bars are much closer to WestWinds than the public accesses. This is a big feature if there's any wind on the lake at all. After you get back in, there's a fish cleaning station at your disposal, along with good food and a bar if you need something to eat.

You get a lot for a small launch fee!

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
