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.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
