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.

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

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
