Any advise for the weekend?

4 posts in this topic

4 of us are coming up this weekend with a sleeper house. Pretty familar with Rainy and know there isn't much of a night bite to speak of but much cheaper this way. The question is, would anyone recommend we put the house as base camp in Sand Bay or East toward the Visitor Center. In the past we do the majority of our fishing from Dryweed to the east. I thought I had heard the park road is out to Bushyhead Island now? Are extentions needed for augers. Thanks for any help that can be provided.

I would put it east,less crowds,and some mighty good fishing out that way,lots of options.Are you bringing sleds ? It would be a good idea.Lots of snow and some hard drifts out there.You dont need extensions. Iam not sure how far out the park road goes.

Good Luck

The park has the road plowed to Diamond Island, bassbuster1 is right lots of drifts out there makes for some rough ridding on the sleds

Thanks for the input guys. We'll be bringing 4 wheelers. We were up a couple weeks ago and were able to get around pretty good if we choose our routes wisely. I am defintely with you on the east being less crowded. That's almost as good as catching fish. Hopefully I'll have a good report to post when we get back.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
