Stony Point Access

6 posts in this topic

I thought I saw that the stoney point campground was closed for the year but can you still use the access all year? I was thinking of trying to get out there this weekend and possibly accessing there for ice fishing.

Thanks,

Joe

Should be able to access it. If not, you can try Whipolt.

It shouldn't be closed. THe campground yes, but not stony point. Don't snowmobilers drive out of there in the winter?

Whipholt is a good alternative if there isn't a north wind.

I think that stoney point access is still open, I will check tommorrow. The water is to shallow for whipolt, you'll get stuck. Trappers Landing or Horseshoe bay will be your best bet if you don't mind a fee, this time of year I wouldn't worry about it though. Sand Point is a good option.

I launched out of Stony Point last weekend. The launch is always open, as well as the parking lot next to the launch. There is a big baracade on both the entrance and exit to the campground area.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
