Early Ice Walleyes - Garrison Bay Report

Recommended Posts

Bryan P

Buddy and I went out of Garrison access on Saturday. Took the ATV out to the first break and setup in 20ft. Was a tough bite with the bright sun and clear ice. Lot of lookers and not many takers. Morning had most action. 7" of ice at the reef. I need to go back up there one day for a redemption. Might try the east side next time, heard its pretty good later in the season.  Good luck to those headed up! 


Here is a video of our day

I fished the SE corner of the lake for a couple hours Saturday evening 3-5 p.m.  Set up on top in 15' of water and caught 3 eyes between 3:30-4:15.  All three seemed to be from the same year class @ 15/16".  10" of really nice ice about a 1/2 mile offshore.  Fun evening!

I was in isle Bay all weekend with the ice castle. 13.5 inches of ice.  Only got 5 all weekend. The smallest was 23 inches, biggest was 26. 20181214_204356.thumb.jpg.2785ba737e049213f8b78997341063e6.jpg20181214_204539.thumb.jpg.d1d1c523ff9ad28154a89d0b6ad612b4.jpg20181215_165120.thumb.jpg.1e247c43cdcc57343c5f113574b8d99f.jpgLots of lookers jigging.

      Honestly, that narrows it down quiet a bit. There's only so many points by a sand bar. 😄
    • Knowknot
      Be careful out there on the ice, we don't need any casualties..... Make sure it's safe..  
    • Huntin&Fishin
      That is if the snow holds off
    • leech~~
      Is that the one point with a cabin on it, or the one with the Oak tree?  😏

      How's the performance of the lithium in the cold?

      I wasn't looking for exact locations, just ideas.     I guess I don't understand the whole secrete spots thing.  I don't mind telling anyone exactly where, what and when I was fishing if I was successful.  Again, I'm not looking for that, just general ideas.  I know the lake well enough to find fish. But, I just recently, last winter, starting fishing it during winter.  I've mainly done C&R catfish, because, lets be honest they're a lot more fun to catch then walleye.

      Paul has always done things the right way.   I'm looking forward to seeing what he does at Bug Be Resort.   Another great option is Artie's Bait and Tackle or Schmidt's Landing on Big Stone lake.  Walleyes, jumbo perch, tanker gills and slab crappies are all good options there.
