wmn luv me walleye fearme

I;m thinking about moving my permanent out to wayzata bay on saturday. (currently i have it on indy and have for the last 4 years but this year has been terrible) The spot I want to go is a good ways out from that access near the yacht club just have a couple questions. Is the ice pretty consistent most places on the bay this year (have to drive it out) and the spot I want to take it is not in the city so will pretty much be on its own so a little worried about being broken into. Any one been hearing anything this year? I thought about moving it near the other houses by the yacht club as it always seems a little safer in the city but have no idea what there catching.

thanks a lot

A friend of mine just moved his permanent from the city in Wayz. bay over to Brown's. They drove on the lake the whole way over there. I'm not sure of the exact thickness now, but I've seen people driving in the middle of Wayzata Bay for at leat a few weeks now. Back then it was about 12" a few hundred yards off the shore.

As far as fishing in the city, it has slowed for us, which caused the move to Brown's for some different scenery. If the goal is to catch more fish, I'd suggest getting away from the crowds. I haven't heard of any break-ins on Wayzata so far.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
