Best Place To Walk From????

8 posts in this topic

I'm heading up on Sunday early morning with a buddy, and i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for somewhere to walk out from that wouldn't be horribly far, but still have a decent chance at a few eyes and perch. Was going to wait till there was enough ice for a truck, but have the urge to go this weekend, and don't have access to a wheeler or a snowmobile.

I walked out of Cove public access today, lots of perch...but required a good amount of sorting. I wouldn't expect 'eyes in that water.

I have walked out of lybacks. It is close to structure and he will help you out on fishing spots. It is on the south shore just west of Isle.

Let us know how you did. I may head up at the end of next week.

I agree, if you are going to walk out on that lake Lybacks is the place to do it from. You can catch anything on that first reef and its a reasonable distance.

You can walk out on our place as well - right in Isle bay. We are catching a mix of perch and walleye - just caught a fat 26" last night...

During the early season, I usually walk out by Father Hennepin State Park.

I launch my boat from there a lot in the SPring time as well, and fish close to that area... I do very well..

Is there a fee to access through the state park?

report from sunday,

Well i went against everything and decided to go to rocky reef area, ended up walking a long ways and thought we were going to die. Got out there and set up around 8am and stayed about an hour after dark. We were rewarded for our efforts though. We ended up getting three keeper eyes 16" or so, then couple that were only about 10" that we obviously put back and a couple in the slot. Also lost a nice one at bottom of my hole. We also caught quite a few perch all day and seen a ton more on the marcum and aqua view, but had to do alot of sorting in order to get a few keepers out of them. Action was really up and down all day, but best time was definitely about the last hour or so of light. All in all not too bad of a day.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
