Is 3 mile reef out from hunters point producing?

It’s always producing!

You just got to get their and fish in and out of the buoy markers.

If I remember correct, there is a pretty stout drop off on the north end of markers. Anchor and slip bobber with leech or minnow right on break and you will get walleyes. It is always nice to mark fish before you set up.

Pulling cranks at the depths of marked fish works well also.

I have always seemed to have more luck on North end and little to the east. Who knows though!

Is this the spot by Garrison? I'm not that familiar with the names of all the locations. I know there is a reef just north of "3 Mile" but the nearest point seems to be Pike Point.

Husker, Three mile reef is on the southeast part of the lake north of Isle.

I would say it is a little to the east and in the middle of the lake. If you have a map, find big point (Big point is on the east side about half ways up). After you locate big point, put your finger on it and slowly go west out into lake. If I remember right, you might have to go up just slightly. It is not all the way to the center of the lake, about half way to the center.

minnesotatuff,

Thanks!

I never have fished in winter! My winter fishing is in the area of Doe island reef down to Isle bay and over to cove bay!

Do not rule out drifting! Keep rod tips up (so you do not get snagged in rocks) and use 2-4’ snell with red or yellow hook. I would use .5 to 1.0 once weight. Leech or crawler works best. What ever way wind is blowing (if there is wind) and set up and position your self so you will glance off to one side or another of 3 mile reef markers. This has been lucky for me also.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.
