Little Turtle or Movil

14 posts in this topic

Looking to fish these lakes in March. I know Little Turtle doesn't have an access, pretty sure Movil doesn't. Is there any way to get on these lakes in the winter?

We usually go on these lakes during open water and can only navigate by way of Big Turtle. Thanks for your help.

If you do get on, be really careful of the springs... Both lakes are loaded with them...

Hey CardFan do you stay at a resort during open water?

SOMETIMES....TOOK LONGER VACA AND HAVE STAYED AT WHITE PINES THE LAST COUPLE YEARS. OTHERWISE, WE DRIVE UP FROM OUR UNCLES IN PINE RIVER FOR THE DAY OR JUST STAY OVERNITE IN THE BACK OF THE TRUCK SOMEWHERE.

WHY DO YOU ASK?

Beef,

Can you tell me why "springs" are of a concern?

Or is that only for hardwater season?

Springs = Thin Ice from the water moving or flowing. With a lot of snow it can be very dangerous and not knowing the lake.

The question was about hardwater season.

Ok, then I think I met you before not this last fall but the fall before, you guys came up and stayed in cabin 5 at White Pines.

Gene,

Springs in the winter are bad news for lake travel... They tend to keep the ice thin and that makes it typically dangerous for vehicle and sometimes foot/atv travel... What makes it really tough is sometimes especially with snow cover you cannot see or know where the springs are at... And at other times the springs can keep the water open in certain areas...

Hope this helps...

nope not there anymore....and nope don't know how you can get to them in the wintertime. I think you asked me that when I talked to you at the resort, and I told you that you can't acess them because of no access on either, unless you trespass on lake owners' property, and I wish to no one the consequences that could occur if caught! Sorry Cardfan

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
