4 posts in this topic

I recall seeing a post awhile back regarding access to each lakes. Has anyone hit them? I plan on coming there myself shortly and hitting Movil just for 1 evening and 1 morn.. Just checking to see if there's much activity on lake???

I live on Movil and fish both lakes fairly regularly. Depending on what you are looking to fish for you should be able to find something biting on one of the lakes. If you come up before pike season ends, any break on Turtle will produce fish. There is not a public access on Movil however but access to Turtle doesn't seem to be a problem. Good luck fishin'.

I did some spearing on Turtle earlier in the season and yeah, there's definitely fish there. Never went out and didn't see something. I haven't angled out there yet but there were a good number of houses out there in Dec. into early Jan., but I haven't been out there recently to see how it's going.

What about pressure? I'll be fishing just off South Movil Road, fishing strictly Movil. Unfortunately pike & walleye will not be the objective,(outta season). I've only fished open water and this will be first time on ice. I'm over-anxious cause I can't imagine too many others on the lake?

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.

      I hope to be out early next week.  Weather and river level depending.  Will post a report if I make it out.  Boat all ready to go.

      I camp on an island so I don't have to worry about the landings and crowds. Do most of our fishing at night so I never worry about other anglers. If I needed to go to a public landing for opener I would never go.

      Here's the State's definition of a public water. Please note the highlighted text.  The Sucker is a Designated Trout Stream. (remember the blasting and improvements made back in the 70's? Those were public dollars that paid for it. )  That said, this isn't license for people to slob up private property, only to gain access to the stream. It might mean walking the shoreline from bluebird landing, or down from the freeway, but the water is open, and fishable,  to the high water mark. Subd. 15.Public waters. (a) "Public waters" means: (1) water basins assigned a shoreland management classification by the commissioner under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221; (2) waters of the state that have been finally determined to be public waters or navigable waters by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) meandered lakes, excluding lakes that have been legally drained; (4) water basins previously designated by the commissioner for management for a specific purpose such as trout lakes and game lakes pursuant to applicable laws; (5) water basins designated as scientific and natural areas under section 84.033; (6) water basins located within and totally surrounded by publicly owned lands; (7) water basins where the state of Minnesota or the federal government holds title to any of the beds or shores, unless the owner declares that the water is not necessary for the purposes of the public ownership; (8) water basins where there is a publicly owned and controlled access that is intended to provide for public access to the water basin; (9) natural and altered watercourses with a total drainage area greater than two square miles; (10) natural and altered watercourses designated by the commissioner as trout streams; and (11) public waters wetlands, unless the statute expressly states otherwise.
