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.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
