Deep/Shallow?

3 posts in this topic

Heading up to the pond Friday afternoon buckn' wind with a wheel house. Have usaully fished in one depth previous years, but after reading reports, sounds like there is a shallow bite happening in the evenings also. My question is what areas are easier to pull a wheel house from the deeper water(30-35ft) to shallow water(12ft)? Are there any roads or trails to follow in shallow? Any info on the bite this week would be great too. Thanks!

If you go off Wheelers Point, thats Adrians Road. Stop at Adrians and get a road pass & minnows. They have a road plowed and its very good. I would go out to about 34 ft. and if you have a portable go in to about 16ft. around 3pm. The bite out deep is more of a all day bite.In shallow you only have a windo of a few hrs. Good luck, Im going up Thursday for the weekend myself.

Off of Morris Point's road shallow travel is tough. The shallowest we fished was about 20'. The 12' water was full of rough ice and deep snow. We ran across a few guys stuck in the rough ice. There was a shallow bite in that 20' range. Travel out deeper was easy. The snow is crusted over and can be tough with a wheeled house.

My guess is it is the same off Pine Island.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
