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 fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Any tips on smallies up there? First time coming up.

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!

      https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_parks/park.html?id=spk00285#recreation_facilities   says there is a public access on stuntz bay.   further research pending.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/was/report.html?id=69037801   Water Access Site Detail Vermilion Lake, Stuntzbay Public Water Access Site   Administrator: Township Location: 2.5 miles northeast of Tower, on Stuntz Bay, on the south shore of Vermilion Lake. Facilities: 2 concrete slab ramp(s) 10 vehicle/trailer parking spaces(s) 1 dock(s) Lat/Lon: 47.826428,-92.23896   Might be worth a call to the DNR to confirm one way or another.
