Me and 3 buddy's want to come up for a weekend of fishing but I only have experience with "Reel Adventures" fishing service. We are thinking of staying in sleepers, even though there isnt really a nite bite(it will be nice to be ready right at sunrise).

What date should I look at going and what place would you recommend for clean sleepers and willing to put you on the fish? Also, It would be nice to save a buck or 2....

Thank you for any help!

Matt

Its tough to predict a time frame that is going to be right on. I was there right after Xmas which has always been good for us the past 10 years and it was very slow. I'm headed back in a week and that time frame has also been good. Last week of March is also a good time, and we have had great fishing for many years. The major changes and swings in the weather patterns as we've been having can make predicting a real [PoorWordUsage] shoot.

Riverbend, where we have gone over all of these years has some really nice sleepers. They move them as much as needed trying to stay with the bite. I've never stayed in one as we prefer the cabins and lodge on shore, but I did stop and take a peek into one that was empty and they were very nice. Someone posted pictures of them about 2 weeks ago on this thread. You could give them a call, their toll free number is at the top of this page on their sponsor link. Good luck with your choice and hang on. Bill

Hey, as always I'm recommending Bob's Ice Fishing. He's real reasonable price-wise and always does a nice job putting you on the fish! (That's the main thing) Info. and number at www.bobsicefishing.com

As for a time-I'd get there as soon as you can get everyone up there!

      Kitchen staff is a big issue. The cook got fired recently but overall it’s owned/managed by not the brightest people. Same owners at moosebirds. I think they’re in over their heads. They had good pizza imo until they switched to the stupid wood fire pizza oven and created their own crappy crust recipe. They’ve been changing menus weekly and jacking prices-I’m sure some of that is reflecting the increased cost of groceries but not impressed at all lately. I know someone who works there and the help isn’t very happy either. Wolf bay is where it’s at lol.

      August bite is pretty good.

      BigV..... how things can change in a day. I fished from 8:15 until 11:45 this morning when I caught walleye #50. Probably the best morning ive ever had on the lake. Lindy rig and half crawler was the method. This morning when you graphed those pods of fish they bit.  As far as the lake in July and August? Personally August is my favorite month. Typically when you locate fish they bite. Wind blown areas holding perch minnows is what I concentrate on. Quite often it's sand pockets for me. That was the key today as the fish were coughing up perch minnows. Fishing always snaps back into shape when they get off the bugs. Soon the basin will be alive with the trollers. I really like the leadcore bite. Usually the quality of the fish caught is quite good. I'll be fishing walleyes the rest of the week hopefully continuing to report an improved bite.

      Same! It’s been terrible for me. I always blame myself but I feel like rumor around the lake is that it isn’t worth fishing for walleyes after June or before September. I hope that’s not the case and it is just me lacking knowledge.

      Excellent report Muskies!  Thank you!  Also really appreciate the pictures that you include in your posts.  We are looking forward to being on the lake boat camping in 16 days.

      Fished Whitefish both Sunday and Monday from about 6AM until 10AM each day. Used only artificial lures.  Trolled  weed edges some of the time with Shad Raps #8 size, and then a little deeper with the #9 size Flicker Minnow.  Only caught one 29 inch Northern trolling.  Spent about 1/2 of the time casting  a jig and soft plastic into about 12 ft to 18 ft  where there were decent, but not great weeds.  Caught  several small Northerns plus 2 more that were 27" and 28".   The bonus was a 17.5" Largemouth.  No Walleyes either day.   Monday had several "bite offs" on the soft plastics.  That is kinda the problem with using them where there are Pike.

      Timber Bay Lodge is a good spot, I always go there when I go to birch lake.
