Safe Harbor

2 posts in this topic

Is anyone fishing in the McQuade safe harbor? I heard about some people doing that and having mild success. I was thinking about giving it a try this weekend, and I would appreciate any info on ice thickness and methods. It sounds like you sight fish and try different presentations?

Thanks

Tried last year and no luck. You could see the fish (not that deep). Tried everything but no takers. The problem is that it being so shallow, they spook real easy. Any movement on the ice will scatter them. I think you could do good if you you were the only person there set up a tip-up and go sit on the bank. Hope that helps. Also it is getting to be a known spot>>>later the load

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
