1st timer fishing the north side next week...

9 posts in this topic

Looking for a launch to do some mid-week fishing after labor day. COULD go out of garrison but would prefer to avoid any crowds and go out of a resort closer to wealthwood if possible.

How has the fishing been along the mud flats and the north side.

Any general advice this time of year?

Thanks!

The Red Door Resort- Right on Hwy 18 in Wealthwood has a private landing. I believe $10. Nice harbor- Shallow when you first go out to main lake.. THEY NEED RAIN!!! mad.gif.. I have not been fishing for a while. This weekend I will be out again.

Good luck!!

There is a public landing at Malmo and a pay landing at the Castaways resort about 1/4 mile south of Malmo on 47. I don't know the condition of the public landing or the water level. Check with either of the two gas stations in Malmo if you think this might be a concern. Good Luck!

I think the Public Access at malmo is way to shallow to launch.

I would play it safe and pay the $10 at the Red Door or somewhere else.

Drove around the whole lake last Wensday. Not very many public accesses to evern consider. Pay the launch fees and play it safe, cause $10.00 is alot cheaper than a new prop or lower end. wink.gif

So it looks like Red Door or Fishers resort...

Will probably throw a dart at the map and pick a couple of the further NE mud flats to fish...

Best bet to troll cranks or lindy rig leeches off the sides of the flats? Will be fishing primarily during the daytime.

Is it worth fishing over the top of the mud during the day at all?

Thanks.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
