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.

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
