Mid-lake structure & lake access

Recommended Posts

SquirrelMaster

First off, Merry Christmas to all,

Planning a trip before New Years with some family to LOTW & URL and wondering the best lake access resorts to go to? I would be coming from wheelers point, are there signs to these access points? Sorry for sounding like an idiot, but I would be coming up for a day in the early, early am, so i would like to know the best route possible and get out for the early morning bite and make the most of the day. I have been to URL and so we should be ok with access there.

Lastoff, would we be best to stick to pine island/zippel bay area or would it be worth the time to explore some of the mid-lake structure?

Any help would surely be appreciated.

Thanks

Drive up 172 from Baudette to County #8, go west (left turn) for about 3 miles, Go north (right turn Clyde) on #20 to the end of the road. Welcome to Morris Point! Any questions and you'll find me about a mile out in 27 feet of water on the right side of the road. 8x20 sleeper. White steel with tan corners. Stop by and check the bite.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
