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?

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
