Advice for west side this weekend?

9 posts in this topic

I'll be heading up thursday afternoon. We're staying at McQuiod's starting on friday afternoon, but a couple of us are going up early to fish thursday night/friday morning.

We're staying at the casino that night. Any suggestions on the west side? I was looking at the map and Shermans flat looks close. Any suggestions on resorts we could buy a road pass to get out there?

Thanks in advance!

Tony Someone told me earlier on this post that Terrys boat harbor has a road out to curlys and shermans which are very close to each other. We usually head up late in the season to fish shermans. Last year with no snow you could drive everywhere but when there is a lot of snow like now you might need a 4x4 to get off the road. If you have a GPS with a lakemaster chip in it look for tight depth lines on both of these flats and keep away from others and you should pick up some eyes and maybe some jumbos . Give us a report from your trip. Maybe this side of the lake is having a better bite. Terrys is located on the casino road but real close to garrison. If they havent changed from last year it is a ten dollar pass but probably they have bumped it up a little bit this year. Have a great trip and catch some fish!

Thanks for the response. I will call Terry's. I've got an Envoy with 4wd. We're not too adventurous and probably won't wander off the road any further than I can drag my portable. I do have a lakemaster chip in my gps, so we'll give that a shot. And, of course, I'll post a report. Hopefully it will be positive!

Twin Pines and Terry's have a road all the way out to the 8 mile and Sequichie's Flat. We were up there Friday until Saturday a.m. and fished the outer 8 mile and never got a bite. We were on a prime spot that we have fished every winter and summer but nothing was biting.

If you plan on venturing off the roads at all I would recommend chains on your trucks. We had a Toyota 4 wheeler and a Jeep and we were stuck more times than we can count. A lot of slush out there also. Hard to believe the slush with all the cold weather we had over the last week.

Good Luck...

We were at Twin Pines Friday night through Sunday morning and had two fish. Both were Walleyes one small and one 26 inches long. We were in the first row of there rented houses ~ maybe a mile from shore. Good luck to you.

At least you caught something Wayne. Better report than I have been hearing from others!

we were in the 2nd row of rentals out of Twin Pines this weekend and didnt get a thing.

Had a camera and only saw a few very small perch. No walleyes at all. Saw good sized Northern off in the distance but nothing else.

Looks like you might have better odds in the casino from the reports coming off the lake!!!

Never go to the casino! No serious fisherman would support such a place!

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
