Docks

8 posts in this topic

Have they pulled the public landing docks yet at Hoo Doo Point? Heading up Saturday and don't want to be surprised.

Docks were still in as of yesterday. There was ice along the shoreline in Pike Bay and the water temp at noon was 37 so if it stays cool it could be iced in but you're probably still OK for next weekend.

Speaking of which, I've got a tiny boat and I had to walk it out of the sand a few weeks ago while putting in at The Landing on the Cook end. The water was so low. Are the Norwegian or Wakemup Bay public landings any deeper or in better shape this fall?

I know Wake Em Up is fairly deep, but I am not sure how much the water has dropped in the las month or so.

Water is really low plus dead heads are showing up. Landings at Frasier and Moc Pt are still good but tip your motor up until you get out aways or you might hit. frown.gif

Yep too early for ice as far as I'm concerned but then it wasn't all that long ago we had the Mega storm on Halloween....

I know the the Hoo Doo Point area can be pretty shallow too. I am hoping I don't have to motor all the way to the Narrows with the motor tilted up crazy.gif

As of last weekend, Fortune Bay Marina still has their docks out in the lake. Our docks are now high and dry. And I couldn't believe how low the lake was last weekend.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
