A question for LOTW

3 posts in this topic

A buddy an I are coming up to the lake on March 16-18 along with a few of the guys he works with. We are staying at a motel in the Wheeler's Point area. I was looking at the reg book today, and it says for Four Mile Bay, the walleye/sauger limit is 2 and anything over 19.5" must be returned to the water.

My question is this. When we go out from wheeler's point, the area from there to Pine Island, is that considered Four Mile Bay, or is Four Mile Bay on the north side of Pine Island? I am just curious, cause I kinda wanted to try all over and move around a bit, but if fishing on the south side of the island means 2 fish, then I will make sure to go over to the other side. Could one of our many experts please chime in and help me out?

The area to the south and east of Pine is Four Mile Bay. Although you can't keep anything over 19.5", this is a good area to catch and release a true trophy walleye as the spawn starts to kick in. And by the way I am no expert.

Thanks,

That is exactly what I thought. When do they start to move down to 4 Mile Bay? Is March 16-18 going to be a good time to fish in there for the pigs or is that too early? This will be the first trip up for my buddy and me so we really look forward to doing some exploring. If they will be in the 4 mile bay area at that time, what would be some good depths to look for them in?

Tom

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
