Where to Go????

6 posts in this topic

A couple buddies and I are heading up on Saturday and Sunday, Would like to fish on west side by Garrison, but don;t know about ice. So it looks like we will fish one of the bays on the south side where i'm not familiar at all. We are looking for somewhere we can walk out, but still have a decent shot at getting a few eyes and perch. Any info would help.... which bays?? depths?? easiest access or resort???? Or if anyone has any info on the ice on the west side of the lake that would be a help also. Thanks in advance

I now am pretty sure we are going to the south or southeast side of the lake. anyone have any suggestions on where would be a good spot to go?? we don't have access to wheeler or sled so we will be walking, and want to find somewhere we dont have to walk two miles out to have a shot at catching a few eyes and perch

I'm heading up with a couple of FMr's on Saturday and going out of Hunter Winfield's. Haven't been up ice fishing before, but have heard good things about their bay.

I've heard of a few guys I know doing fairly well one the first break staight out from the Super 8 motel off of 169 just south of the casino. Usually limits of perch, but thats taking their word for it, i usually fish the Garrison area and do quite well. The owner of a local baitshop has been out a few times the last few days and has been doing well on the first breakline.

Have fun getting to the break line, I tried last night in garrison bay. Made it to 12 fow and was wore out from pulling the house and gear in 15" of snow. Be careful when you drill a hole you get 4" of water comming up all round you. Not fun.........

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
