Movil/Turtle anyone fish there?

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?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
