Is there any public boat acess on north turtle? We have never found one. It sounds like it might be a fun lake to fish.

No public boat access on North Turtle.

I recall the DNR talking about building a public access, but I haven't heard anything for some time...

The fishing is good, but it gets pounded hard in the winter.

Winter killed by ice fisherman, maybe. blush.gif

That lake saw enormous fishing pressure in the winter in the past several years. Not as good as the old days...

The fishing turned down last year, but it didn't have a winter kill that I know of. I live on the lake and have not seen dead fish pop up over the last couple of years. I think a huge issue is that the cormorants and pelicans are thick on the lake. It seems that it turned down when they appeared. There are plenty of bass in the lake and northern yet. Please come and take some bass off the lake we could use some decline in there numbers.

Did the DNR put some special regs on the bass there?

I believe the dnr purchased a spot for an access to be put in next year. Pan fishing is pretty crappy out there, and like any other lake in the state, you can catch some northern and bass. But, i think of them as sportfish, so every one i catch goes back in to be caught again. I would go to South Turtle for pannies. I'm not even sure if you can legally launch a boat out there or not, I know the signs sure say not to. I used to drag the jon boat into the water so I wasn't technically "launching" a boat for pannies.

North Turtle Lake: All 12" and larger must be immediately released. One over 20" allowed in possession.

nroff is not real bright!!!

They did but it's one of the few but growing number of lakes that they put regulations on sport carp. I'd like to see the dnr start showing statistics to back their regulations on these lakes. The need to control the number of bass taken out of the lake. Are bass in the endangered spiecies list now on nturtle and Jewett?

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
