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'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
