There has not been much talk about this lake this year. Last year the word got out and it was POUNDED HARD. I will tell you that friends of mine have did ok the few times they went out. Problem this year was all the slush on the lakes. Its starting to ferm up a bit now.

Has anyone been driving on Boulder yet? Without a sled or wheeler, the usual fishing holes are way to far to walk to. By the way, if anyone knows of a good used wheeler let me know. Thanks, FMers.

PikePatroller,

Your time would be spend better on any lake you choose. You're just one set of holes away from your new found honey hole. I don't make a habbit to fish Boulder just because of it's distance out. If you know the lake and are willing to go looking. You never know what you might find.

Better time spent on Fish lake? Possible but with that comes larger groups of people and all that has to offer.

Good luck on your choice of lakes. What ever you do stay warm!!!

Some friends and I found the elephants graveyard of crappies on boulder. They were big, dumb, and biting! Toss in a couple of suicidal walleyes in the 15-16 inch range and a handful of jumbo perch, and one crazy bonafide 10 inch gill, and we had the makings of a great trip. We were someplace in the west basin in 14-15 fow, and all of our fish came on small buckshot rattles (in gold/orange) tipped with nothing but a minnow head. This worked much better than a whole minnow. The cold snap was great for keeping all the other undesirable competition off of the ice! On all other details I have been pledged to silence under pain of death. Good Luck!!

i don't remember the name of the resort i paid to launch my boat through last summer. does anyone know if the road is plowed out to this one and only resort?? i would guess this would bring you closer to "the honey holes", instead of the public access.

can you access there??

Is anyone driving out onto Boulder? With the cold weather it would seem that slush should have frozen over and the ice should be thick enough. I don't want to be the first, so would appreciate knowing if trucks have been out yet. Thanks!

troyslund,

My guess is the Silver Fox for the resort you're talking about. I thought I was told one time that they don't offer access during the hard water season. I may be wrong about the access but I'm sure someone on the site will know the answer.

They only allow foot, atv, and snowmobile. As far as I know no driving out from sliver fox. Probally have to use public access.

troyslund-

i would also guess you're talking about silver fox resort. i launched out from it a few times earlier this winter, for a small fee, so i would guess it was still open.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      Tried to buy it last Friday and they were not available. System was down/messed up
