Tubing lake?????

15 posts in this topic

I need to take the kids out tubing soon, they have been on my case. Is there a lake that is good to do this on? I know when I am fishing I dont like them on the lakes I am on, thats why I am asking if you guys know of a good lake for me to go to for pulling tubes.

I would suggest Shields or Clear Lake. Both fish and fisherman seem to be down on those two lakes this year.

I have done clear lake, but heard is rather gross right now, and dont know if I want my kids in that water. Havent been to shields for a few years, but heard the water maybe pretty low, and it isnt a very big lake to tube in.

I would agree with Washington. I do not fish there on the weekends due to all the traffic. Plenty of pleasure craft, jet skiers and water skiers.

Come up to Leech Lake. I haven't seen a "tuber" in 5 years.

Thanks, I was thinking washington, but I know it is a popular fishing lake, and I hate to annoy fellow fishermen. If I was going to milacs or leech, I wouldnt be tubing, I would be fishing grin.gif . If anyone has a better idea let me know.

Thanks!

German or Jefferson are great lakes for tubing as well, a little less boat traffic in comparison to washington as well. The nice thing about these two lakes is the openess, even if there are people fishing the middle of the lakes offer some great stretches and plenty of room for the figure 8s. Have fun and be safe.

I seen something last weekend on washington that was real scary there was a boat tucked behind the grass island which was loaded with some yough kids and this jet ski comes flying wide open threw a opening on the island it looked like he missed the boat by 20 feet I was on the corner of the island and it looked like they were going to hit. Good thing I wasn't in that spot i would of been reaching for my casting rod. later I went back to that spot and another jetski does the same thing it was a yellow one the first time. Maybe we can start a new season just remember anything you snag has to be thrown back. Please whoever is doing this stop it may be fun but just think how you would of felt if you would of hit the boat i seen the look on your face when you seen the boat. you looked just as surprised as the people in the boat...

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
