Clearwater launches???

Recommended Posts

I launched on the public launch across from McBrides bar and grill recently. But where is a good spot, public or private to launch as well (on a busy day).

There's another landing north of the access you used near McBride's. The other landing has a gravel road and is not nearly as nice as the one by McBride's. Head north from McBride's, go past BJ's Bait, and the access isn't too far down the road from there on your right hand side. I think it's marked with a Public Access sign.

The landing north of Mcbrides that Schloeride is referring to was upgraded last year and in my opinion is just as good as the access near Mcbrides. It has just as much parking, if not more, and 2 landings. We had no problems launching a 18 1/2 footer there with a bunk trailer. The lot was also paved. The road leading to it is still gravel.

That is the black pool landing.

I didn't realize it had been paved. The last time I used that landing was several years ago. There was no problem landing there, but the other one was better. Nice to know that it's been upgrade.

Does anyone know if the water level on Clearwater is lower than last year. If so, any problems getting through the channel from the black hole access to the main lake?

Bones is that the access inhte northwest bay? I have thought of launching from there. But worried about shallow water to the main lake.

You can easily get through the black pool channel to the main basin, also there is a pay on on the east basin off hwy 24, I think its 5 bucks?

The pay access off 24 is $5 and the owner is there to help everyone park and find a spot.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
