Never been any kind of marked road I've heard of anyhows. I assume your talking road for truck travel? There have been years where you can get up there via pickup out off of Adrians road. Couple years back folks were, and that year there was also a plow track off the end of Babblers at 16m that made all the way up to Stoney.

As a word of caution I would be sure to talk to someone from Sportsmans lodge before venturing up that way right now. The "crack" that has been creating havoc for the west end of the lake all year ended up going through the Knight and Bridges area up towards Garden. There are still area's of unsafe ice up there so take caution and be informed on the most current conditions (meaning day to day). Unfortunatly the calendar and the ice conditions are not playing nicely this year.

For sure don't go there now KNIGHT, figured you were asking for future reference. Way too soon to be exploring.

With the fishing on the south end the way it has been there is no reason to go to the reefs.

I am assuming you are not meaning in the Long Pt/Rocky Pt areas because those areas have been slow from what I have been hearing.

Hey guys.....I just fished Knights Island on LOW on 2/3/13. We killed the walleye and sauger. We had to cross a huge crack but everything was safe. Borderview has houses up there now. My 10 year old son caught a 24" walleye...his biggest and we had a blast. Wigwam is bringing houses up North as well. If you can get up there...go. It is well worth the trip!!!

      Just a heads up to all.  Someone has been cutting off the Catalytic convertors on vehicles at the landings on Island Lake Reservoir.  Trucks are targeted do to the clearance and ease to get under.  They hit several vehicles on Friday morning and were trying to sell the parts at a local scrap yard by 11:30am the same day.  It cost me over $500.00 to replace this weekend.  Police where notified.

      Thank you for your opinion. I respectfully disagree with just standing by, as multiple 3lbs+ bass were shown to me in a livewell this morning coming off of a 300acre lake. Again i completely realize this is a legal choice to make, and at times selective harvest is necessary for maintaining a healthy ecosystem. Where I live in Minnesota, bass are plentiful, but fish of that calliber and bigger are not growing on trees and it takes multiple years to get to maturity. As aforementioned, i am serious about the sport aspect of bass fishing and hate to think of the idea of 10+ yr old fish being taken from lakes of such small size especially. I have personally seen the possibilities catch and release offers as myself and a buddy have caught the same 4lb fish with distinct bird/pike bite marks on 3 separate occasions just this spring/summer alone.  Again i do not mean to shame these people for being proud of catching quality fish, just want to find the best way to try to shape their thinking to take a more conservationally responsible approach to fish harvest choices. I appreciate any help i can get

      They split FM and HSO.   Turned out to be a bad decision in my opinion.

      If I were you I would mind my own business.  Harvesting bass instead of just annoying them is perfectly legal.    You could always write a strongly worded letter to the DNR and your state legislators suggesting special regulations on those lakes that concern you or even a statewide change if you really feel that it is a problem.

      I have 2 large anchors so movement is not a problem as long as the wind is not too heavy which causes a little rocking.    The screen was as detailed as it is in winter.    As far as fishing went.    I was marking a lot of fish but most were cats.   I only marked a couple of possible walleyes but no takers, but in fairness I was only testing and was not in my best spot and was only there about 20 minutes.    Have to try again later in some of my winter hot spots.   Don

      That’s what I’m wondering too!  Mostly how well you can actually keep your bait in your ducer cone.  For a pontoon fisher I can see some pretty cool positives for the setup!

      Now I've seen it all!  😁 So how'd it go?
    • rodbender27
      Looking for advice on how to approach/converse with those who choose to keep bass. I have worked at public boat accesses around the metro for a few years now and see anglers taking bass home with them more often than I would care to see. As an avid bass fisherman, I have bias toward complete catch and release on all bass that are caught, however i understand that it is completely legal to harvest bass as long as one is complying with harvesting laws. The big problem for me persoany is when i see people keeping the totally wrong size fish (15"+) if you were to want to keep some.  I have struggled in how to go about trying to make people think twice about choosing to keep bass (or at least the larger fish) without making it awkward or seeming like i am shaming them. Would like any input on how I could go about conversing with these people. Any personal accounts would be great, thanks

      I have heard the same reports. Good to hear that the walleyes on the West end may be starting to recover! Cliff
