BOAT LANDING ON THE WEST SIDE

4 posts in this topic

I'm bringing up my boat for the first time this year and wondering if there's a good/safe place to put in the water on the west side. I realize us "city folk" aren't particularly welcome up there these days but I thought I'd give it a try. I'm a catch and release guy anyway so the slot doesn't bother me a bit. Any info on the west side would be greatly appreciated!

Public: Garrison is Ok. Casino is HORRIBLE. By far the worst I've seen for shallowness.

Private: Don't go to Terry's (explained all in the other post you prostitute). Eddy's is ok as is St. Albans Bay Resort.

I've gone out of Garrison many times this year with no problems. With the slot, you will have almost any flat to yourself.

Thanks a bunch for the response! I will, of course NOT be going to Terry's for anything. I have used St. Alban's launch service a few times this year and Dennis has been awesome! I wasn't sure about putting my boat in there though. I'll gladly fish the flats by myself!!

You may also be able to launch your boat at North Star Resort in Wigwam Bay (about half way between the casino prostitute ramp and Terry's).

      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!
