Best Landing South Side?

3 posts in this topic

Now that Roger's landing is closed where is the best place to launch on the south side of the lake? Thanks!

Morts Dock would be the best bet, just past Rogers follow the signs.

Morts is where we launched a few days. It is fine at the base of the ramp but gets real shallow after that. I have an 1850 fishhawk and my motor would hit the bottom if I didn't trim it up till it was almost out of the water. I'd recommend walking your boat out on the dock and still keep your motor trimmed up till you hit the first break. I had a friend that smacked a rock pretty good with his prop on the way out well past the flags. Anyway we launched there three days, they have minnows and stuff there to. Not a real big parking area but that shouldn't be a big deal after the opener and memorial weekends.

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
