Lost Bay Area

4 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I will be heading up to lost bay this weekend. How has the fishing been? Has any been out by Wolf Island?

Does anybody know if they have any campsites close to wolf island handicap accessible?

I would like to be bringing my aunt who has MS and has a difficult time walking. She loves getting out and would be great if we could get her from the boat onto an island site.

Thankyou to all who reply.

Hib, Wolf Is. has been getting alot of attention, lots of over the harvest size fish being caught there. I've not heard of many keepers from that area. The deeper waters near Wolf would be a good area to fish. Cuculus has given up some keepers and saugers near the sand bottom structure between Cuculus and the penninsula.

Down in Lost Bay, I had heard of some catches in Ek Bay. Should be little better current flowing, another 1/2" of rain last night. While near Wolf, try Green Is.

Hib, contact the park for info on handicap accessible campsites, I can only think of one up in Namakan.

good luck, guts

The site in Blue Fin Bay, just north of Cuculus island has a dock and fairly gentle slope up to the campsite. Close enough to the start of Lost Bay to be reasonable. It's good of you to consider other's needs.

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
