Sept. 23rd

5 posts in this topic

We are coming up for the first time on the 23rd of this month. Anyone have any suggestions where to go, what to use? We will be fishing during the day from around 10am to 6 pm. Coming from St. Cloud, where is the best place to land a boat? Thanks a lot

Put in at Garrison access but make sure you trim you motor way up lake is VERY shallow. If the wind is blowing 15mph or more fish the windy rocks. Find the shallowest rock 3'-5' and bobber with leech. Lots of rocks by Myr Mar. Be careful by West Myr Mar reef lakemap shows 6' but its now 2'. You can also pull plugs on rocks. If calm pull plugs out in the basin. Good Luck

Not familiar with that part of the lake. Is the water really low? Or why is it now only 2'-0 by West Myr Mar reef and the Garrison landing too low now? Currious because I too will try and get there the 23rd and have never been. Thanks for the help.

The water is really low guys were banging up alot of props at North Garrison access. I was blowing bubbles & still hit down. Be careful if going out of north Garrison access go slow & keep your eye on depthfinder until you hit 7'

      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.
