What if I don't have my boat!?!

7 posts in this topic

So, what's a guy to do? W/ no boat right now, I'm wondering if anyone has good suggestions for some good wader fishing this time of year. I've had great luck on Twin, Deer, Goose and Buffalo in the past, but I'm looking to expand? Any other good "wader lakes" I might be missing? Thanks guys...

First off i would like to welcome you to FM. Great place here where you can get alot of information.

The camp is a great place. There is alot of places where you can go on twin and get a few fish. Clearwater has some places that you might be able to get some pan fish.

I would suggest Lake Francis, casting a Rapala in the evening. The north access is the best, but you could also try the south access. You will get both Walleyes and Northerns(Small). It is sandy so you shouldn't have to worry about weeds.

there is alot of pan fish on twin. I have seen alot of people that are fishing by the landing. There is a small bay that is right next to the landing, where people have been fishing out in front of it. Im sure you can run into a few fish there.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
