YOUR Place

12 posts in this topic

As things are quieting down a bit between seasons, I've been thinking of the places I've been to on the lake, and the places I want to see. I'm just getting to really know the lake, and can't wait for the ice to leave completely and explore a bit more! By far, my favorite place is the French Portage. Just awesome scenery with some great walleye fishing mixed in. A little tricky to navigate, but a beautiful place to go. Behind that, you really can't beat Monument Bay. Unbelievable fishing for nearly all species of fish the lake holds. What about you? What is YOUR favorite place on the lake to be, and what are you fishing for?

Whitefish Bay, by far. Clean water, most dramatic landscape/rocks on the lake and some darn good laker, smallie, pike and muskie fishing.

Nothing wrong with Big Narrows/Tranquil Channel area too! Good thread, interesting to see the different responses.

Tough question Frenzy. But as Hemlock said about Whitefish Bay.........awesome beauty. The forest starts a bit higher up the rocks in that part of the lake and the white/grey rock really adds some contrast. And every time I've gone thru the Annie Island narrows, I get a rush from the scenery. I think if it's not THE prettiest place around, it's close. And then there are the lakers, walleyes, muskie, bass, pike, even the odd whitefish.

Of course heading across Big Traverse on a calm day watching, the islands appear is a treat of it's own. Big water has a beauty of its own. Just can't find much ugly anywhere you look. Try to imagine the south shore all cabins, like so many lakes. Ugh.

I love Big Narrows for the fishing and islands but for me there is something about going back into Seperation Point. It might be cause I landed my first eye there.

Head up through Tranquil channel, then take a left into the Turtle bay entrance, then hang a right (slow down) and enjoy the entrance into Quandary bay.

Nirvana.

Someday 1/2 my ashes will be there, the other 1/2 at No. 12 Augusta National.

leave from Nestor Falls, follow the south route as charted on the map, and go through little blueberry split, right past bald rock, then to hay island,around rabbit point,then on to miles bay. Soooo pretty, and protected from wind, many spots for multi species, and just a beautiful ride!!

Here is how my trip comes together.

I enjoy seeing the customs at Warroad on my way to the Angle(means we are almost there).

The gravel road makes it feel so rustic and remote(all the wildlife along the way)

The 2 big pines right next to the road after entering back into US.They act as gates to the Angle, they are taller than most other trees nearby. (anyone else know where they are?)

Youngs bay We are here!!!

Monument bay area

Whitefish Bay

Johnston passage

Tranquill channel

The narrow entrance to Quandry and what ever bay that is

Just being up there is great and I honestly cannot say one area is more pretty than the other. As they all are very pretty.

I can't believe you've noticed those trees as well. We call them the "Twin Trees" and have clocked them to be 13-15 minutes away from Youngs Bay, depending on the driver smile.gif

The Big Narrows are a very good place, but my favorite is the Ash Rapids area. I don't think you can find a more peaceful place on earth, when the sun is setting, and there are a million differnt colors reflecting on the lakes surface, you know you are somewhere special!

Gives me the chills, just thinking of some of these places...Ladyofthewoods, you know the lake!

I'm very familiar with the twin pines. That's my mark as well that we're almost to the angle.
