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...

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
