Fishing help

10 posts in this topic

We are heading up To lotw on the 27 to 29 on A father son fishing trip. 4 dads 4 boys. What areas are doing the best. We will be going out on Adrians road fishing portable. Any help would be great. 2 of the kids are only 6 so I hope the action is decent so they dont get bored.

Sounds like you are heading in the right direction. The past two weekend I have had good luck on the other side of pine it 23-26 foot of water. I will be up there the same time but I am heading out to 5 mile reef with my Dad, Mom, and Sister. Should be a fun trip. I have usually had pretty decent luck this time of year on 5 mile.

I found the gps coordinates for 5 mile last year by doing a search on the this forum. Twelve & 16 are available too.

Try setting the search to go back 2 or 3 years.

Labby,

Going out of the Warroad city docks (mouth of the river), head out Northwest well, 5 miles out and there you have it. Take a look at any lake map and it’s basically right in the middle of Muskeg Bay. I haven't heard if there are any houses out there yet – I would assume so with this cold snap we are in. "REEL ADVENTURES" or the bed & breakfast as many of you may know it by typically haul their houses out there. As of Monday they were going to see about pulling some houses out there. They generally have a bomber trail that heads out that way too and typically a truck path parallel to that. Usually, there is a marked path as well. I haven't been up to the lake to verify this…just based off of the past years.

If you have wheelers, you shouldn't have an issue at all.

If you go off of Springsteel you go straight east to

get to 5 mile. So I think 5 mile is NorthEAST out of

Warroad public landing. Northeast, or East Northeast

right Vexi man?

Yes Reel Adventure Fish out there and that is who I am going out with since I am taking my family with me. They were going to be pulling house out the end of this week. It is 5 mile NE of Warroad Docks. I never have driven out here myself I have only went with Reel Adventures but it probably is just as easy to head out from springsteel as warroad docks. Watch for cracks there are usually some out there.

Thanks for the info,

I think we will be staying in the Pine Island area this time being we have young kids with, Any depths in that area producing better recently, I usually try shallower then deeper but we may just pick a spot in the low 20,s so we dont have to move as much with the kids. I have had better luck in the past closer to the gap has anyone fished in that area lately

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
