I was thinking of taking a run up this weekend, with my wife and the boat for the day, to check out all the fun. Fish during the day, primarily for walleye. But after reading the posts about water levels and launches, I'm not so sure. Any words of wisdom for directing someone unfamiliar with the area (and the rock piles)? Recommended launch sites (pay or free), how bad is the traffic/trailer parking be this time of year?, Best bait shops/marinas to patronize and get local advice, etc/, etc. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

Head to the rocks where the wind is blowing in. This time of year you do not have to go out too far.

I launch out of Wahkon Bay. I'm not sure what they charge, 8.00 or so. They have a nice deep launch and you don't have to go far to get to the rocks. It's also got a biffy and great food.

Thanks Ryoushi! I'll check them out! This trip is more about getting the lay of the land than about hard core fishing...but if we catch something, that's a bonus!

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
