Mr. Nailz

Plug Hat is right down the road from there. There is a bait shop/liquor store right next door to your lodging too!

The Gosh Dam Place is the coolest name ever!!! I wanted to stop there and eat when I was up there a couple weeks ago but it was BEYOND packed!!!

But yeah, if you go down county 9 and take the high banks resort road, it goes to a public access also, I believe it's called big birch picnic area. Not 100% sure on the name, but it is birch something.

plughat is a great landing but with the low water last fall it was even difficult if you go up 46 there is a mosmo landing that also is good if the water is real low

Tamarack Lodge is about 3 miles from Gosh Dam down hwy 9. Brand new launch last fall. Worth the $10 for a secure place to park your rig. Free doughnuts and Coffee on Opening morning.

birches is nice access, but you have to watch the winds a bit as it is so exposed.

I like to launch at mccavity bay or the launch at the state campground. I just can not wait to get out there and try some spring slab fishing.

I have never fished crappies up there. Is it very crowded on weekends there? I may have to jump in the boat this weekend and close my eyes and imagine soft water fishing.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
