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.........

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.

      Thanks slowpoke.  I just looked at them again and they're in really good shape actually, it's just that the back boards where the screws attach are weak and some of the screws don't stay in on a couple of them.   Does anyone know of somewhere in the metro (preferably south) that would repair them.  Would a Marine place like Dan's Southside or Valley Motor sports do something like that?
