Going past Pine Island

3 posts in this topic

I have fished LOW since the early 70's. I have fished from Springsteel around to Arnesons, Long point, Zipple Bay and over to the river for opener. But, I have never been over Pine Island. Three of us are going on Friday and the question I have is how far past the island should we go.

You will need to stop at Adrians Resort if you are going over Pine Island to get a road pass. The access is at Wheelers Point. You can ask for info at that time regarding how far out you can go. Check Schwanny report " Riverbend etc". That resort fishes over Pine and he was out in 30' of water. Are you pulling your own house or looking to rent one? either way check with Adrians, nice folks and they do a good job of maintaining the road system for vehicles. Good luck and hang on. Bill

The road pass for Adrian's Road is $7. We fished out of Bayview Lodge last weekend and did very well off that road. We were 6.5 mi out. The road isn't maintained much further that that as Bayview's houses are the furthest houses out that are accessible with a 4x4. Good luck!!

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
