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!!

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.

      I went to lake osakis and got my butt handed to me. I fished hard and cut holes for deep to shallow. I tried about everything in my bag of tricks to get them gills and crappies to bite. Nothing was working from 2mm jigs with a euro or micro plastic to jigging spoons. For fishing all day I caught one 8 inch bluegill. But I am looking at it as a learning experience and will help me be thankful for those slower days I have. I am going to hit a couple winter kill lakes this weekend. Best of luck to you all
