hi i have thought about going up there and fish by my self with just portables. how do the accesses work. do you just pay them so much for the day and are the roads plowed, if so i dont want to get stuck trying to back into a snow bank to get off the road. will the resort people give you a idea of where to fish or not. dont want a guide just general idea where to fish. never done this before but i want to pull the trigger this year. i would be on the south end is where i would likely go. is the cost reasonable thanks

10 bucks is the going rate for a day pass, and that will be up to you to decide if it is reasonable, if something goes wrong, or you need help, would think it would be. The roads will be plowed well enough for cars even. Depending on how much snow there is, there will be banks all along the roads and you could get stuck if trying to cross them. If you want to fish a particular area that you can't drive to, just pull way off on the side of the road and walk your stuff to the site, but don't drill right next to or on the road. As far as where to fish, am sure any resort will lead you to places they have heard good reports, but fish swim, so what is working one day, might not the next. Most of the roads are plowed to the "good" areas but will ultimately up to you to find them. If you have never done it before, it's a pretty cool experience....have fun!

Yep Pushbutton nailed it. The south end of the lake has so many places to choose from lots of gravel/rocks, bays, weedlines, and some of the resorts get out to the mud. O yeah and the deepest part of the lake know as the tullibee hole. Don't forget the transitions from gravel to hard bottom and bigger rocks to gravel. The resorts will give you the best info they have on where the fish are biting, because that is how you get return costumers. Good Luck

Mid-Lake Rock

The two responses you have received are very accurate. I've had very good luck going out of Lyback's, Hunter Winfield's and Chapman's on the south/southeast side of the lake. Good roads and they will help you with where the fish have been biting. Lyback's will provide you with a road map and they will mark spots for you to try.

The $10 you pay a resort owner is money well spent. They check the ice, bridge cracks, give good advice and make the experience much easier than using a public access. Lots of good options around the entire lake.

      Fished a few spots on the Horseshoe  chain this afternoon pretty slow yet surface  water temps were around 35 degrees.  Water levels are up and plenty of bottom content floating in some of the channels and bays. Felt great to get back on some open water and use the long Rods again. 👍Plenty of boats out there running around.

      Just within the past couple of days is the first instances I have seen or heard of storres limiting the amount of people in them.They went unchecked or regulated for quite some time.IF this virus is as contaigous as they say it is  then guess where its likely the most prevalent now-your gas stations,grocery stores,liquor stores its hanging out in the only places people are left to frequent.If you think that limiting the number of people in a store or staying 6ft away from  people while your in the store is stopping it from spreading your crazy.Stay healthy maybe we will see ya on the water!

      I am grateful that  I have such a wonderful, caring , and loving wife and wonderful daughter .   i am also grateful that during these hard times that at least some people understand , and are following all implemented rules/regulations that have been handed to us All !!   Im also grateful for all the essential workers that are putting their and their loved ones life at risk everyday during these hard times ,they truly are amazingly wonderful people , especially when they have to witness people who don’t get it .   i

      Well said.  I see this everyday at work. Some people come in alone, get their items and leave. While others come in as a group or family, walk all around gawking and touching everything in site. If we just adhere to common sense and social distance these few weeks we can have a better summer.

      We each have rods for panfish, nords and eyes, there a tad rusty.🤣 not to mention we each have a flyrod. That's enough. Only got so much storage room.

      Natural colors, Browns, black, and orange have been the go to colors for the lakes and river here around Morrison County. I will say I don't fish Muskies much anymore, so things could have changed.
