Bald Eagle

4 posts in this topic

Heading out to Bald Eagle tomorrow, what is working? Probably start around the island and then figure out how far we actually want to walk and haul the ice around. Won't get out there until 2 so an evening spot around the island would be great....I have another spot but it is way to far to walk from the landing....is the landing on the northern end open? where the old boat rental place used to be or still is? could make for an easier walk out to areas that we like to fish

Not sure of the old landing, but you can access the lake on the north end via right-of-way at the "T" and it would be the same walk.

I have heard they are driving all over the place, but not going to take my truck out there yet until I see PLENTY of other trucks.

Good luck!

I was out there in 30ft of water, pulled 5 crappies out between 5 and 10pm... dropped the aqua-vu down and saw a million crappies, but couldn't figure out what was making them bite. Either way, small glowing teardrop with a small crappie minnow, and a walleye hook and small minnow got me 5... GOOD LUCK!

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
