Which resort? Or Public access

10 posts in this topic

I would like to know how has the deepest access on the lake? I have a bigger boat and need about 3' to get out with no worries.

any resort that has charter launches will be fine. there are a number of them all around the lake.

The deepest public access on the lake is north Garrison bay (Myr Mar). There was still 4 feet of water there last fall.

Orlip,

I know that George Nitti at Hunters Point has just back holed his whole marina last month. Hunters Point will have a nice deep harbor.

Also Greg and Dean up at Fishers Resort will have a nice deep boat harbor too. Also Kevin and Karen at Macs will have a nice deep boat harbor.

Those three resorts would be my best choices!

Fish On!!!

Cranker,

Come on, you would'nt want giver a try at Appledorn's. I remember when Joe wold have to launch a cabin cruiser. He would have his feet up on hood of tractor. It would take three or four runs, but he would get it done. I don't think he liked it much. I only seen him do it once and then never again. Does appledorns val lea launch boat's for people still? If you guys still do, this could be a key aspect of Appledorn's with water level the way it is. You guys would be set for any level the lakes is at for lauching!

Thanks for the info guys. One other question, my father in-law would like to try for some muskie this year and I have heard that the north end is good for that. Is that true? Or can the south east side be good to?

Unfortunately,

We do not do that anymore at the resort. The insurance company doesn't like the tractor and boat launch scenario too much. With the lake as low as it is we would have to drive a good 200ft out to get a boat launched. Thats not the tough part though. The tough part is trying to get the boat on the trailer when the waves are hitting you.

The bottom line is your going to get wet!

Fish On!!!

Orlip,

Really, the whole lake is getting very good reports! I know that the north end does well and in front of our resort in Sunset Bay does well. Fish structure anywhere and you will increase your chances of landing a trophy.

Fish On!!!

Yes your are right. Someone gets hurt or damage occurs, it is lawsuit time. No one ever got hurt in the eight years I was there, or that I had heard of. It does only take one time and things go south. Thats to bad. Lets hope for rain.

Earlier in the winter I went out of hunters dropped the camera down a bunch of holes looking for eyes and then he or she came into view, a big muskie. Wish I would have had the recorder thing for the camera.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
