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...

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
