Public Access on North end of lake (Contact Us Please)?

10 posts in this topic

I read on the MN DNR website that there is a public access on the north end of lake (Contact Us Please) but i have never seen it before. Anyone know where it is? I would like to launch there tomorrow.

This is rediculous it wont let me put in the name of lake!! LOL. Sounds like "eye-da" and its three letters! LOL

Thanks!

Can't remember, but if you go to the DNR website, go to the Lake Finder, & look at the lake map you should be able to find it easy enough.

I already tried that, looked at both maps, and I only found the two on the east side. The reason I ask is the cabin I will be staying at is on the north side!

The ones on the East side are the only two Public on the Lake. They typically refer to the Northern most one as the "North" access. I'll be up there tonight and out on the water bright and early tomorrow morning.

I'll be on the north side around 2:30pm in a blue fishhawk.

I figured out the access up there. Its always been there and its a sand access with a couple of cement slabs into the water. Its about 5 cabins down from where Im staying.

If your asking me, I am going there for the weekend to stay at a cabin. Plan to be fishing minimum 12 hours a day if the weather is nice.

Oh, I get the question now. Bass is what i am going for. I love topwaters!

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
