Walking out

Recommended Posts

gogophers

Hoping to get up Friday and don't have a sled/wheeler, so I'll be hoofing it, dragging the Yukon flipover behind me. Any recommendations on decent fishing spots that aren't too far from shore...preferably on the southern 1/2 of the lake?

Gopher...i was thinking the same thing you were. I am heading up Saturday and will be hoofing my Yukon and gear. I am also wondering if there are any flats that are walkable to.

I would NOT think about waliking to any flats with the amount of snow on the lake, that is VERY good advise! grin.gif

Thanks TRZ....all of the flats I know are way out there! Oh well, what about the rock bar by Garrison? That might be an option.

hit the first shoreline breaks 13'-22'. lots of options and not too bad of a walk anywhere from cashs bay all the way to wealthwood. 1/2 mile walk at most to alot of really good spots.

I would recommend packing LITE! It was no fun hauling the Eskimo through all the snow that is on the lake. We walked out near the Super 8?? on 169 and ended up with a couple small perch. If you head out, good luck.

It will definately be the bare essentials, I'm not against getting a workout, but it sounds like this is something else.

It's more than a workout. It was a near death experience for me. I thought I was going to have a heart attack! shocked.gifgrin.gif

any reefs on the south side should be good, like banana, graveyard, malone islan etc. deffinitely off the first and second break during the day, and pretty close to up on at night if you stay out that late... the best actions seems to be in 12-18 fow, i just hope this cold snap again doesnt do anyhting, there predicting some bitter cold this weekend... and high winds on thursday and friday...

I usually do well whenever I walk out onto the lake with the yellow perches.. I catch some nice jumbo ones too, believe it or not.... I also catch a pike here and there once in a while, but walleyes are hard to catch walking out from shore.

Thanks for the info, not going to be picky about what I catch due to my limited mobility on foot.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
