Fishing out of cove bay area

8 posts in this topic

Anyone been out fishing in this area and done very well? Did great this summer but haven't had much luck this ice season.

Most people have moved out on the main lake by now, but you should be able to pick up some perch or pike with a walleye mixed in here and there. Read the report by Wilderness warmth they are based out of cove bay

Yes I have a house I bring up from the city and keep on the ice all winter. We have been on Kings hump and doing pretty well. Some days are better then others but I have had a pretty good year so far. Lots of fish in 25-30" range

Aceinthehole is right. You can have a total of four fish in your possession. That's either 4 under 20" or 3 under 20" and one over 28". Good luck.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
