SOME OF US WANT TO FISH BLUEWATER NEXT TO WABANA. WONDERING IF ANYBODY COULD GIVE US SOME INSITE ON THAT LAKE. WITH A STOCKED LAKE LIKE THAT, DO YOU CATCH GOOD SIZE FISH? WHAT SEEMS TO WORK BEST?

THANKS FOR THE INFO,

SHANE

bluewater s good for trout and has some nice smallies in it as well.

trouble is, I don't know how you'd get on it in the winter. we come up through the channel during the summer, but since the camp and residents had the road on the north side moved, unless you know someone on the lake, it's not gonna be easy to get access in the winter

i fish bluewater alot you can get in thru the bluewater bible camp if your nice, i catch some nice lakers out there a 20lber that i released a few years ago lots of 10lb class fish and lots of 2 to 3lbers to smoke or eat, however the action seems to die off after the first few weeks of trout opener then you just get lots of lookers and some that wont follow a bait at all, and i hardly use anything on bluewater but a white tube.....

how deep is this channel? i thought snowmobile up to bluewater from wabana. but that may not be a good idea considering the snowfall and lack of ice. may be we will try via the camp.

thanks for the info.

Just snowmobile up from Wabana. If you park in the boat landing off the forestry road you can get through via Wakeman Bay and to the channel in about 5-10 minutes tops (you don't have to zig-zag around the rock piles in the winter). How deep is the channel? I've fished Wabana in June and August and shot over to Bluewater 'cuz my daughter likes swimming there. The channel's never been more than a foot and a half deep. There is that overhead bridge thing but I don't think there's so much snow as to block it off and, after the last two weeks temps, I don't think ice depth is a problem either. Just my $0.02.

In the past the bible camp has allowed poeple through because the camp was closed. This year the camp is open and in use. Just worked there last week on a well problem. There was no sign of activity on the lake as far as I could see at the time. Captainshane I think Raider4ever ment the south landing on wabana. Becareful cause the landing has a steep hill exiting and this hill can be extremely icy. There is also a river that exist near the landing and the channel in the middle can stay open at times. Stay closer to shore and follow the other traffic onto the main lake and you will be fine.

are there any crappies on this chain. A frind of mine has a cabin up there and I loved the p[lace. Right on the south bay of wabana, by bluewater entrance. How cool is that lake. it really is like an ocean out there. Have been pretty much skunked for the year and hoping on getting some nice craps. Any out there? Before I drive two hours, would like to know what your opinions are of the area crappies, and then lake trout. really want to do that once in my life. I am walking unless you feel like there is plety of hard ground for a 2 by drive.

      I have heard much of the same from friends that have been in there recently. They say the lake trout fishing is the best it has been in a long time and once everyone gets their trout the walleye fishing is awesome too! Great to hear!

      Fishing Vermilion has been slow for me. I have a couple friends here, one of whom grew up with a cabin on Trout, before the BWCA, that we visited as youngsters. We fish it every year looking for walleye but usually only catch bass. Today, in the rain, I had the absolute best walleye fishing ever. I have caught a 28” on Vermilion, but today caught my (larger) limit including 27”, 26”, a couple 24”s,etc. Beautiful fish- dark bronze with red/gold fins, The other guys did well, too. We were throwing back 15” fish. Great day. I sound like I’m bragging and maybe am, but Trout is back as a walleye lake. Leeches today, slooow drift with a Lundy rig, 14-20’ off points.  I’m 68. Best walleye fishing of my life- so far. Only regret is the red lab had to stay home. Boat is too small. RLG

      We have pretty good bass fishin’ in MN.  19 is a good one. 😎

      Anyone get out this weekend and care to share how fishing was? Will be heading Up tomorrow after work for a week at the lake.

      The service up there is very spotty at best. I have AT&T and have a place in Sand Bay. At the cabin there is hardly any service and what there is usually comes from Canada. That being said a mile down the road it’s 4 bars of LTE. I can’t say exactly how service is at Island View but when we fish in Black Bay right around the corner there’s pretty good service. About as good as it gets on the lake. The farther East you go the worse it gets and fast.

      Someday I'll get a big one. 😆 I did pull a 19" Largemouth out of Weaver lake last year. The largest bass I've ever caught.

      Earliest memory for me was age 3 on the bank of the Miss with a cane pole.  Been through many cycles of “evolution”, if you will, including fishing tournament circuits.  That’s well behind me now since I fish to just enjoy it for what it is and where it takes me.  I’m drawn to water.   My most recent cycle has me chasing muskies a bit like @gimruis  They’re some freaky fish.  I just spent a week chasing them in Canada and witnessed some memorable encounters that made my hands shake and knees knock without even catching the fish that I saw!     Aside from the fish, there’s the deer that swim across the lake, the sow bear and cubs that huff/wheeze when you get too close and the loons that swim around the boat while you’re casting or make their chilling calls to their mates when they’re only 50 feet away.  Good long days on the water working in synch with a good partner, short but restful nights of sleep, and occasionally forgetting what day it is.   It’s a game that wakes up my senses and makes me feel whole.

      If nothing else, it’s a great excuse to get out of the house and go for an adventure! Bought what looks to be a very comprehensive book on the subject, quite a bit more to identification than I imagined. Nothing wrong with Spam😀

      We will be on Rainy Lake in the Island View area in a few weeks, coming up from Missouri. I have an iPhone and iPad with AT&T 4G cellular data and calling. How disappointed am I going to be in reception and especially the ability to use my Navionics charts up there?  Suggestions?  TIA
