South End just for the day

Recommended Posts

My buddy and I are heading up from the cities on Thursday morning just for the day. Since we are only staying until about 6:30pm we want to get on the lake in the south, however, I have never fished from this side of the lake. Are there any recommended spots to try just out of Onamia?

Also, is it worth our time to try the bays for perch or crappie?

I think dragon was just referring to those places as good access points as they will have roads out to places you will want to fish.

Drive out the public access in Cove bay. Alot of perch in there, many small ones but a few small keepers too. Go out the free ice road to spirit island and jig the mud for perch or walleye. Can't go wrong for the price.

Brandt's has good roads, bridges in appropriate places and the general location of the reefs marked with signs...In my opinion well worth the road fee...I'm heading up thu for the first time in many years also

Thanks for the info everyone. I'm looking forward to getting out. This will probably be my last chance to get out of the metro for fishing since my February is so busy. I hope to have some decent fishing.

Tony as you know the road is not free it is plowed and maintained by Wilderness Warmth. There is a $10.00 bridge fee for all non-customers. You yourself used to complain about all the people that jumped onto roads from the public access because you we're a paying customer to maintain the road also. The roads are not made for free they cost money to plow and maintain and are checked daily for the safety of everyone using them.

Many options in the area. If your just going into cove or other areas the public access in Cove is fine since there is no snow. If you need to get out past cracks or there is more snow good operations like K.J's and WW will have roads. If you use plowed roads and bridges you need to pay the fee. Brandt's has alot of roads. If you don't pay the road fee don't expect any help if you have a problem! Good Luck to all!

There is not much snow in cove bay but are some deep snowdrifts. The only resort that runs out of cove bay and has a staked,plowed, and maintained road is wilderness warmth. We also have a bridge just outside the bay to gain access to the main lake. Other businesses mentioned do not run out of cove bay and have different access locations on the lake. When using resort roads please remember that it does cost alot to build and maintain roads and bridges. Thanks to those who help pay for the roads and bridges. Drive slow and be safe.

Friday night through Sunday morning in Wahkon Bay out of Walleye Dundee's. They had us in 17 ft. Caught 3 walleyes on 5-6 inch sucker minnows on rattle reels 1-2 ft of the bottom. All 3 fish came 2-4 hours after sundown. During the day had a nice pike get off at the hole. Didn't see much on the camera. Marked a few fish during the night but wouldn't bite. On the jigging poles were buckshots and crappie/fatheads to no avail. 26" of ice.
