chester woods shore fishing

4 posts in this topic

I am taking the family camping this weekend at Chester Woods. We plan on doing some shore/pier fishing. My 5 year old likes catching cats and carp. I would love to get out on the lake with my boat, but since we are bringing the camper we will have to fish from the shore. Any advice on which pier or area we should concentrate our efforts on? I will follow up next week with what we get ahold of. Thanks

Welcome aboard! Good question about Chester. I have seen people catch some small bass and gills off the docks before. Also there is many trails that lead around the lake. Some have some decent shore spots to fish. Good luck to you and Alex.

if you like catfish, at chester woods there' a hole across from the canoe rental's dock, use peeled large shrimp, early in the morning, i've caught cat's anywhere from 5 to 10LBS there, goodluck!

It was a great weekend for camping, but the fishing was slow. We managed to catch a few small bass (one was maybe 15")and bluegills. The bluegills where all hand size or bigger. (As long as the hand doing the measuring was my 3 year old daughters hand grin.gif). I had luck using a 2 or 3 inch rapalla minnow at dusk. We'll give the catfish a try in a couple weeks.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
