Heading up this weekend to attempt to hit the walleyes and perch...anyone have advice on the area of the lake that has been better than the other, which resort would you recommend we take the wheel house out of ?  

Thanks in advance!

Stick in Mud

I'll be out of Myr Mar on the northwest end. I like it there because there is rock, sand, some weeds, and mud all within a close drive, but if you're planning to plunk 'er down and be comfy for the duration, you'll find more structure than you can shake a stick at out of any of the resorts on the lake. Specifically regarding Myr Mar,  I don't know if there are any major cracks out in the lake that would prevent travel, though, so others might have to chime in on that. 

As far as I've heard, the bite is pretty much what it's been for much of the winter:  Lots of fish out deep (though it has slowed down since mid-January) and fewer but a few more big ones in shallow. Shorter bite windows shallow, too.   I'll spend one night out on the flats/deep transitions and one night in shallow.  I usually fish *really* shallow, so I don't get many perch there, but I hear mixed reports of people getting them off the deep end of the flats.  Just my .02.

Going to try the SW side in 11-14' of water. This could be a total waste of time and stupid but right now it's hat I'm thinking.

Guys at Red Door provide great access service to the lake, and is conveniently located. Their advice last Monday served me well.  Just because there is ice doesn't mean Walter hasn't a touch of spring fever... if you know what I mean!

      Isn't there a place next to Spring Bay resort, towards Moosebirds

      I'm considering the possibility of getting another snowmobile again. My problem is storage. I have no space at home to store a sled and trailer. I was thinking about storing it somewhere near-ish the west end of the lake so that I can pick it up, tow it the short trip to The Landing, and then get to my place. Are there any options besides Vermilion Drive Storage on Hwy 24 just north of Cook? I reached out to them but want to make sure that I've checked out all of my options.

      Sticks like smurfy said, or an arm full of cattails.  I always made sure I had enough lumber marking my holes nothing would sink or blow away and could be seen from a good way off by a snowmobiler.   Like anything else, some people care; some don’t.     Other suggestion, look up some of the old “Look and Release” videos that were posted on the forums in the past.  Lotta good footage of nice fish left to swim away.

      BINGO!! There isn't a time out that I don't laugh my arse off watching the way some of them pike act. That's the most fun of spearing.  
    • smurfy
      Usually by grabbing a stick, piece of brush, downed branches from shore.

      Release is not chucking the spear!
    • gimruis
      Absolutely.  But angling with hook and line has the option for catch and release.  Spearing does not have that option.
    • gimruis
      If you don't mind me asking, how are old spear holes supposed to be marked?  I'm not familiar with this issue.
    • smurfy
      well I just drove past pokey like about 11;30 today on 169...……...and not to many are out and about just yet.😀 talked to a few locals..still pretty tough getting around on some of the lakes!!!!

      I use mine on and off fishing. I have a sun shield for mine in the summer. it works ok at best. but I do use it to watch fish and check structure. I just used it the last 3 weekends tipup fishing. its both fun and frustrating. to watch a pike grab the sucker, mess with it then let it go, and watch there behavior is crazy fun. and frustrating. I bought a tripod for mine and you can zero in on your bait, but it does take a bit of playing to get it set right. I lost the little rubber stopper so I use a couple winter depth finders. the only downfall is the deeper you need to set it, the more risk you have of a fish tangling up in it!!!!
