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.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
