favorite kind of body of water

Recommended Posts

Burnham

what is your favorite kind of body of water to fish?lake, stream, river, big river(miss, st croix, that kinda thing), ocean, etc. Mine is rivers, like the rum grin.gif. i dont know how to put it but theres somethin bout them that i love, they have more character than lakes. i love tubing down the rum and fishing, smallies seem to put an even bigger fight on when you are on a tube. i also think that its just fun to tube and do those kinds of things down river, whether you are fishing or not.

I can't give you a favorite. One of my favorite things to do is open water trolling on big lakes like Mille Lacs or Erie, but that's not the only way I want to fish. Besides big lakes I also fish small and medium lakes, resevoirs, rivers, and occasionally the ocean. I like them all grin.gif

Flowages and reservoirs, they hold a lot of fish of a wide variety of species without the navigational hazard of rivers. That or lakes with larger rivers and streams flowing in and out. They just hold more fish than other lakes.

My favorite is a lake that has been flooded and there is timber and weedlines present. You just can't beat casting cranks in these conditions!

The ones named lac suel! grin.gif I would say small rivers for smallies, can wade and hike and tons of fish. All by yourself and never know whats going to be around the next turn, seen bears, lots of deer, wolves. No boat yet

Mid sized river hands down.

A close second are the clear deep rocky lakes of the North.

I like clear, deep lakes that hold good numbers of fish and don't have any recreational boaters on it. Thats just me...

I like small, clear, shallow lakes. Or at least clear lakes with shallow structure. My favorite all time lake is in Canada, where you can sight fish for bass up to 15 yards away in like 6 feet of water.

I'm with grousehunter. Small rivers with waders going slow and steady enjoying the surroundings. Catch tons of fish, I've never seen a bear or wolf though!

Medium to small sized lakes with lots of structure with a well-established weedline and lots of shallow cover as well.

Man, I'm in heaven.

Hurry up and melt, dang it....

Lakes with rocks and islands and reefs! Lakes like rainy, vermillion rule. I would like it better with less recreational boaters and jet skis, but a few arent bad. I could also go with the Lac Suel vote!

Small to medium sized rivers have always had a place in my heart. I especially like the idea that you can catch so many different kinds of fish. Many of these rivers have very little pressure on them, which provides the angler some great solitude as well.

Around here; small canadian shield type lakes, and big lakes with lots of islands (lotw, canadian side type). Alaska glacial rivers are fantastic, and over the last few years i've spent a lot of time on the ocean. Blue water trolling is a world of it's own. You never know what might pop up out there, a 12 foot ray, whales, maybe a school of spinner dolphin 1/2 a mile wide with 100 lb. tuna jumping with them! It's so far removed from anything I grew up doing in MN, but every time I get back I'm already planning a return trip:)

I love fishing lakes with deep cabbage beds. There are always fish in deep cabbage. I also love fishing underwater points.

Smaller rivers with smallies in are awesome. I also love to fish small natural lakes either with my smaller bass boat or get into ones without access in my canoe.

As long as I can get a boat on it and there are fish in it, it is my favorite with only one qualification - I hate water that is extremely dirty - either by mud or algae bloom. Don't like fishing in pea soup...

Love the Rum, love Tonka and Gull, love Koronis, love Coon, love the ole Miss too.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
