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.........

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
