Is 3 mile reef out from hunters point producing?

It’s always producing!

You just got to get their and fish in and out of the buoy markers.

If I remember correct, there is a pretty stout drop off on the north end of markers. Anchor and slip bobber with leech or minnow right on break and you will get walleyes. It is always nice to mark fish before you set up.

Pulling cranks at the depths of marked fish works well also.

I have always seemed to have more luck on North end and little to the east. Who knows though!

Is this the spot by Garrison? I'm not that familiar with the names of all the locations. I know there is a reef just north of "3 Mile" but the nearest point seems to be Pike Point.

Husker, Three mile reef is on the southeast part of the lake north of Isle.

I would say it is a little to the east and in the middle of the lake. If you have a map, find big point (Big point is on the east side about half ways up). After you locate big point, put your finger on it and slowly go west out into lake. If I remember right, you might have to go up just slightly. It is not all the way to the center of the lake, about half way to the center.

Ok...now I see it! I'll have to take a break from my normal routine out on the flats. Thanks for the help.

minnesotatuff,

Thanks!

I never have fished in winter! My winter fishing is in the area of Doe island reef down to Isle bay and over to cove bay!

Do not rule out drifting! Keep rod tips up (so you do not get snagged in rocks) and use 2-4’ snell with red or yellow hook. I would use .5 to 1.0 once weight. Leech or crawler works best. What ever way wind is blowing (if there is wind) and set up and position your self so you will glance off to one side or another of 3 mile reef markers. This has been lucky for me also.

      for some reason my replies got deleted? but yes, you guys are right, the startup on the ac unit is double the running watts; also coleman mach got back to me about the thermostats, he said they're all compatible to run off of thermstats, you would need to install a control box in he unit so it can communicate with the thermostat

      Cliff thanks for the updates.  Do you think the hatch will be done by next weekend?

      I have read this also.  I picked up 2 of the Honda 2200's and the parallel kit when we bought ours this spring.  Haven't had the chance to use it yet 🤔

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think.
