Question on Four-Mile Bay?

5 posts in this topic

When do you guys see the bay opening up? We have our sturgeon fishing trip planned for April 14th. Will we be able to fish there in the boat or will we be S.O.L. and have to fish the river?

Thanks ahead for any guesses or suggestions.

Hey Leech,

Don't sweat it to much. There will be a place to fish. Just keep an eye on the lake & the river forums and you should be able to follow the thaw.

We have all been way off on predictions this year & I think every one is a bit gun-shy of even making a guess. Have heard that the Gap is already open and there is a truck down in 4-mile bay but haven't seen it my self.

Did go up to Birchdale tonight and it should be open Sun. or Mon. & I think the rest will..... no, I'm not going to say it.

Ok Leech here's some help, I hope.

Your date is just too close to the wire. Maybe, maybe not.

Nobodys is answering because nobody knows. The next weekend

ought to be ok (ought to) the following weekend even better.

You will have river spots to fish for sure but the bay isnt

something you can bank on the first half of April.

I hope it works out for you but next time come a week or

two later for better odds. The FM Sturgeon Excursion is

April 20th and this time of the year a week can make a

big difference.

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.
