driving to 5 mile

10 posts in this topic

Anyone driving a half ton and wheel house to 5 mile, looking to drag the wheelhouse out there friday. How is the snow? Is anyone going to plow a road from Warroad again this year? I'd be happy to chip in for that service. I would consider 12 mile if there was a road from rocky point.

Yep - there's a truck path that parallels Heath's bomber trail out there. 4WD is recommended. Nothing is plowed as of last night.

Springsteel crew finished their plow track to the S-tip late last week Chris. 5mile is pretty much straight S of the S-tip around about 4 miles. It sits nearly smack dab in the middle of Muskeg bay 5 miles out from Warroad.

Yes,my mistake Elm point,then I'm assuming your reference to south tip is the same as buffalo point?That is where the nice sand bar is dividing the canadian/us boarder right?That guy with the red&white permanent (Pilot I think?)sets his out there often.(A freind of Jake's)c63

Ya man you may just wanna break out the BIG beans and get yourself a map eh!!

Hmmm, how to explain? There is Buffalo point and the south tip of Buffalo point. These are both mainland Manitoba, Buffalo to the N and South Buffalo to the south {duh!}. The waters just out from, or south of the South tip are US waters waters of Muskeg Bay. The border runs east out into the lake from there for a couple of miles as well and there is a sandbar nearshore there which you may be reffering to. "Whiskey Flats" sits out here to the east along the border as well and you may be thinking of that?

If I was more puter savvy I'd send you something mapwise off my LM software but that would be a hairpuller!!

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
