Barnacles Resort

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone been at Barnacles recently? We are heading there next weekend. We are renting one of their houses. I wanted to see how the fishing has been in that area, they are up on the North Side. We are bringing portables with also to hunt during the day. Any sugestions on spots to go?

Fishing has been slow, real slow out of there. Talked with numerous groups with nothing to show for there efforts. Of course the cold limited alot of the focus for some, but 1 guy had a pale with some decent perch. They had roads all the way out to the jug and numerous other flats on the way. The breaks in closer to shore had seemed to been the only area producing at the last time I was there. Headed back up again in the a.m. to give it another go round! Ice conditions were shaping up real well, with 16-18 being the norm. Only problem would be depth of snow in some area's but most should be ok with 4x4. Good luck fishing!

Talked to some guys went off the south tip of barnicle flats and caught 20 walleyes in a couple of hours the other evening at last light- best dam report i've heard all year off of lacs! They said they found the bottom of the flat, and just started marching out into no-mans land drilling holes deep every 10 feet or so checking for fish and did well. We were up on the structure bank and only caught 2 dinkers and a perch. I'd try both and let us no what happens- be carefull for snow and slush pockets though- Got my rhino with 16" of clearence and new ITP's stuck in that [PoorWordUsage]. Good luck

That would sound like the best report I heard also! Wish I would bumped into those guys! I've had luck doing the same thing in years past, looks like its time to get back to the tried and true methods again! I didnt seem to find the slush your talkin about, thank god! Everything seemed really solid after Friday, but earlier last week I also did find a few pockets. I would assume after last weekend though most of that should be gone.

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
