Daly or Bray park?

10 posts in this topic

Thinking about visiting some family over that way and they suggested all of us camping at Bray or Daly park. Any one have any thoughts on either one? And, which would you rather fish...Bray/Madison Lake or Daly/Lura Lake?

I don't know either lake so if the parks are a horse a piece then the better lake for fishing will be the deciding factor.

Thanks

I havent camped at either. I have fished madison several times, fishing there is good. I dont know about lura though.

Bray is a nice park and your a stones throw away from the water.

If you are talking now or soon, I'd recommend Bray. Lura is weeded over (only about 9 feet deep max). Bray will be full, but they may let you camp in the over-flow. Both are very nice parks. Bray will be more busy on weekends since it is a more popular lake with a nicer beach (and closer to kato).

Sounds like Bray is the clear choice. Have to see if there is any room at the Inn so to speak.

Thanks all for the info. wink.gif

I seen that on the Mn Bass Fed club schedule, Northern Black Bass,I believe it was.. good less pressure for the weekend,I heard it was a "hayfield" anyway so im not sure what to ecspect. I remember the first championship tournament I had down there in 05 when SMBT WAS R.C.L.A , when they got all that rain the night before. the water was high and dirty, so i hope the rain holds of for now.

By the way are you a support rep for minnkota or just hummingbird? i need a small part for my trolling motor and don't really want to drive all the way over there for a shaft adjustment knob!

just got back from lura fishing was at best poor in my book,

put aprox. 8 fish in the boat all weekend. the high winds kept me off fishing most of the more productive spots. There is a lot of pond weed through out much of the lake. and ony about 5' of water on the inside weed lines if at all I would wait till mid july before i would head back there

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
