Macs Twin Bay - Any Reports?

4 posts in this topic

Going to Macs Twin Bay - any have fishing reports? Anyone stayed at Mac's? Do they move their houses frequently?

We were out of Mac's Friday thru Sunday. Very nice house, but only 1 Perch caught out of the rental all weekend. It looked like the house had been recently moved, because there wasn't any yellow or tracks around the house when we arrived.

I would plan on just using the rental house as a "Base Camp" and getting mobile to catch fish. You can drive a vehicle almost anywhere on the lake. We went from North of Mac's, down to Wahkon Bay by vehicle and didn't have any problems. Just had to find a way around a couple heaves. Ended up with about 30 jumbos, a 27" Walleye, and a 26",30" and 36" Pike. Saw all of the Pike on the camera and wouldn't have caught them without it. All of the fish seemed very tight lipped and not very agressive or hungry.

My reccomendation would be to stay somewhere on shore at night and fish portable during the day. Much cheaper and less hassle.

bdp323,

I am going to be up there this weekend, I asked for a similar report a few weeks ago and all said it was a nice place to stay and good service. Will see how the fishing is this weekend.

Garagelogic,

Any depths, structure work better for you last weekend?

Thanks for the tip - we'll be bringing a portable and be using the shack as a home base. Hopefully we'll get into something..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
