Water Levels

8 posts in this topic

With the water being down from where it was last fal will the DNR place marker bouys in spots that would traditionaly not be issues. I know there were many spots last fall that a person would have hit then that he wouldnt of with normal water levels. Just curious.

On a positive note with less water in teh lake the fish have fewer places to hide grin.gif

Doubtful. If they marked every hazard and missed one and then that guy sues, well, then you've got a problem

Plus it takes too much time and money and they are pretty busy this time of year.

just a reminder, the white bouy's that are marking the shallow water around the points and reefs are not marking indivigal rocks. they are marking the area of shallow water. you have to give the bouy's about a 100 yards of clearance and you should be fine. using mazominee point as a example, there are several green and red bouy's that mark the safe boat channel to get from cove bay out to the main lake. there are several white bouy's that are marking the reef that comes off of the point, they are spaced about 100 yards apart. every day, people shoot the gap between the white bouy's. well to make a long story short, i towed 3 boats in last year with broken lower units, and there were alot more than that throughout the year. watch your depth finder..............tom fellegy

Any advice on how low the water levels are? We will be staying at McQuoids and will be launching at the public access near by. We have a 1950 Tyee, (pretty deep) and wondering if we should worry at all?

if you ever talk to him, tell him im the guy who one spring told him he had my dream boat. either the next year or the year after i showed up fishing infront of his place again with an 05 black one & 115 otimax. so i just had to say hello again. i love that spot out there any time of year. i hardly ever get to the lake without checking it out. thanks for reminding everyone about the bouys.

regards,

      Thanks Kunzi, that's is exactly the type of feedback I am looking for.  I didn't now Batteries + carried them now.  I was in there a year or two ago and they said they had stopped carrying them due to quality issues.  They must have worked those out.  Please post what brand/model you bought and how your test goes.    Thanks!

      Love my munchkin. I have mine set up as a spear shack.    One thing i do I do wish is that it pulled better with my snowmobile. Works great behind the wheeler but if I need to use the snowmobile I have major issues. Need to have studs added to make it work in the future.
