Rookie heading out this weekend, Please help.

7 posts in this topic

I'm planning to try the full moon walleye action on Saturday night. This will be only my 3rd night time trip and first solo trip on Mille Lacs. Where is a good spot to launch and fish for a rookie with no GPS? I've been told to fish Lakeside Reef as it is pretty close to shore and that Hunter's Point is a good place to launch. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Another recommendation would be to launch out of Eddy's. Very nice protected harbor and the fishing gets good right out of the harbor on the shoreline points. Rocky reff is a short run south from there as well.

This gives you a couple options depending on which way the wind is blowing.

I would launch out of Liberty Beach. It is right in between Hunters and Big point. It is newly redone and its a Public access, so it free. I launched out of it last night with my Warrior and worked excellent.

If you can, check the forecast for wind, and then find an area to launch/fish. Your'e better off paying to launch.

Sounds like NW winds Sat during the day 10-15.

Thanks for that post, thats where we usually put in. It's good to know our access is do-able. Did you do well out by Big Point?

The wash-out holes up at Garrison's are pretty deep on either side as of two weekends ago. If you have a big boat, stick to the south side of the dock or south launch.

It is very shallow on the lake side of the washout holes though for about 50' - as little as 1.5' deep. Be careful there. I put in a 17' Mr. Pike w/ 115hp and got out and in and never touch anything.

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?

      Oohhh, I'll tell you what folks, it is just a beautiful day to be in the northland!!!   Heard that one a time or two.   Classic Country Sunday, the opening 15 minutes were the best.
