GeorgeWatch Lake

3 posts in this topic

I want to go on an adventure to George Watch lake for slimers. It is a long walk from where you can park at the Centerville beach so I need a warm day. Nobody ever fishes it. They have to be concentrated in the somewhat deeper water/channel. Probobly doesn't hold any big fish but I think about going there every year.

Got a buddy who use to live on Peltier they went back to GWL all I remember then saying it was shallow 4-5' who knows might be good for the pike, we use to catch them pretty good on the backwaters on the Rum in 2-4' next time i see him i'll ask him again if they caught anything.

IMHO you'd be wasting your time. George Watch in the summer is no deeper than a couple feet. I paddle it in a canoe often, picking up trash and it's a lot of dragging bottom and pulling up muck with the paddle. The only place I've ever gotten slimers is off of Main St. Even then it's only hit and miss every now and then. If you decide to try it there are two easy ways to get on it. You can get there from the canoe access, west side of Main St. by the spillway from Peltier. Or the main part of the lake from the Wargo Nature Center off of Main St.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
