St. Loius Bay Walleyes

2 posts in this topic

I have noticed a lot of vehicles out on the bay the past week. Some even towing trailers with snowmobiles or wheelers behind them. This always puzzles me.

Anyhow this is just a heads up to be careful when driving out on the bay. Also stay clear of other parked vehicles and houses. There are no secret spots out there so spread out.

Also I wouldnt drive past the blue tower towards the high bridge. That area over by the bridge was open water only a week ago.

Be careful and live to fish another day everyone.

Oh and there are still some fish in the bay but its slower than a couple weeks ago when it was pretty good.

Thanks for the tips and the heads up Steve. I know personally, I don't drive my truck on the ice much anymore now that I have a wheeler, a shelter and a heater.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
