walking out

Recommended Posts

gunderson21

I have fished the rocky reef areas for many years now and heard of the walkon areas. Are there any other walkable areas on the southern shore that are good for walleyes and perch for early ice? I do have a lake master chip and enjoy it but looking for other areas to try. thanks

There are some early walkable area's near Isle as well. Some decent rock structure in the SE corner. That chip will show these pretty well. Bill

Speaking of walking out, any chance Isle or Cove would be walkable by Saturday? Usually head up there early to shake out the equipment, but understand recent wind my make it take a while.

Lots of good fishing structure out of Lybacks on the south east end of the lake within walking distance.

I know we all can't wait to get out on the ice, but WAIT A LITTLE LONGER!!! BE SAVE. Someone already went through the ice on the Coon Lake Channel .

yeah but that due to the stupid thinking of the anoka county sheriff department thinking that there was a dog they needed to save.

Actually, I would say it was stupid thinking of the person who went out on the ice. Obviously he wasn't thinking that the ice is too thin and could break if there was a wave or two.

He needs to take responsibility for his own actions instead of blaming the sheriff for driving a boat on the water.

According to an email that I received from Lundeen's, Cove Bay has 4.5-6 inches of ice on it right now.

How about the areas around Eddy's? Anyone think it will be walkable by Monday?

If this keeps up, we should be in good shape for next week. Hopefully we won't get the 6"-12" of snow over the weekend.

I called the following resorts and this is what they told me:

Lybacks (South Side)- They said Isle Bay broke up last night. Doesn't look good there. In front of there place after a 1/3 of mile there was open water.

Lundeens (Southwest)- They said Cove Bay had 4"- 6" with people walking out. They also said Garrison was wide open.

Rocky Reef (Southwest)- Skim Ice. No chance of walking out.

Barnavelds (North Side)- "No Way in he*l*l I would walk out."

Fishermans Wharf (East Side)- Skim Ice as far as they can see. No chance of walking.

I also tried calling Agate Bay, Red Door, Fishers, Macs Twin Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacle Bills and got no answer.

With this snow we are suppose to get I would wait awhile boys.

Thanks Tannen for doing some leg work. Love that character. Old or young Biff.

If you have the itch to go, stick to a smaller lake north of Mille Lacs. Things will get interesting if we get all that snow. At least the snow won't hurt the big lakes from making good ice later in December (since they aren't froze over yet).

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?
    • leech~~
      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
