Walking out

18 posts in this topic

Hoping to get up Friday and don't have a sled/wheeler, so I'll be hoofing it, dragging the Yukon flipover behind me. Any recommendations on decent fishing spots that aren't too far from shore...preferably on the southern 1/2 of the lake?

Gopher...i was thinking the same thing you were. I am heading up Saturday and will be hoofing my Yukon and gear. I am also wondering if there are any flats that are walkable to.

I would NOT think about waliking to any flats with the amount of snow on the lake, that is VERY good advise! grin.gif

Thanks TRZ....all of the flats I know are way out there! Oh well, what about the rock bar by Garrison? That might be an option.

hit the first shoreline breaks 13'-22'. lots of options and not too bad of a walk anywhere from cashs bay all the way to wealthwood. 1/2 mile walk at most to alot of really good spots.

I would recommend packing LITE! It was no fun hauling the Eskimo through all the snow that is on the lake. We walked out near the Super 8?? on 169 and ended up with a couple small perch. If you head out, good luck.

It will definately be the bare essentials, I'm not against getting a workout, but it sounds like this is something else.

It's more than a workout. It was a near death experience for me. I thought I was going to have a heart attack! shocked.gifgrin.gif

any reefs on the south side should be good, like banana, graveyard, malone islan etc. deffinitely off the first and second break during the day, and pretty close to up on at night if you stay out that late... the best actions seems to be in 12-18 fow, i just hope this cold snap again doesnt do anyhting, there predicting some bitter cold this weekend... and high winds on thursday and friday...

I usually do well whenever I walk out onto the lake with the yellow perches.. I catch some nice jumbo ones too, believe it or not.... I also catch a pike here and there once in a while, but walleyes are hard to catch walking out from shore.

Thanks for the info, not going to be picky about what I catch due to my limited mobility on foot.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      It's pretty driveable out there.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
