Webster Bay / Big Sandy

Recommended Posts

fishhollwood

Hello, just wanted to know if anyone has had any luck in Webster Bay this year. My Family just bought a cabin on the south side of the bay, so I was wondering if anyone had any advise regarding that area. It doesn't matter the species of fish either. I know there's an island in the middle that gets to around 9 ft, has anyone tried fishing there? Any help or advise would be appreciated. We'll be up there this weekend getting the cabin situated, but would love to do some fishing too.
Thanks for any help you can give me!

Thanks for all the great information. I've also notice that that area does get busy during the day. That hump in the middle, if I can ask, what kind of fish have you guys caught there and what usually works for bait or tackle. If you guys would rather email me please feel free to email me at [email protected]

Thanks again for all your help. My wife and I will also be up there this weekend with my parents.

Thanks again!
Jeff

SF,
All I remembered was it was down from hillcrest next to a pink cabin
and huskies tied up on the beach. I went in the vicinity and had my kid
holler out Scumfrog and hoped you would answer?

fish,
I am mainly a Wally Dog guy. Lndys and jigs. I will get ahold of you later this week when I know my schedule better.

Scumfrog-

If your looking south at the bay, we have the cabin that is hardest to see because of trees and branches. We plan to clear some of that out this next weekend. The cabin has wood siding, and is right next to this cement boat storage. That area has been all cleared out by the looks of it. We were told a realator had purchased the land and wants to build a big cabin there.

Does that help?

Do you know where Rich and Mary Reynolds have their cabin? They are good friends of ours. We are two cabins away from them toward the bar. I really don't know the directions via the road since I've only taken it once and it was dark.

We are two cabins before the point that goes into Floe's bay(what a cabin!).

Does that help?

Are the Ellings from Mora? If so, Parents know them too. I think the cabin is next door the Ellings.

Fish,
It depends if willys gets my boat done by this weekend. But if I come up would you like to come out and fish with me? Scum your invited too if you make it up. It sounds like you guys are pretty close to each other as far as cabins go and I am right around the corner at eagle point. I should know by thursday if they will have it done.

Last weekned I put 4 keepers in the boat between 14~17 inches. I had my best luck mid morning but that means nothing if this hot weather keeps up. I usually try to fish friday night when I get up to the camper also. Seems to be less boats on the water.

Chime in boys lets see what we can get going.

Would be fun, but I think I'll be working on the cabin most of the weekend. Maybe later on this summer we'll have to get together. Make sure you check back here and let us know how you did this coming weekend. If I get a chance to get out I'll let you know how we did.

I don't know the area very well, but we are around 15 cabins from this bar on the southside. Acoss from Ingamunson's Island. We are only a couple cabins away from the point between Ingamunson's Island and land.

Does that help at all?

Fish,
I enjoy fishing websters but I usually reserve it for mornings or evenings. What I dont like about it is there seems to be a ton of boat traffic around the humps you speak of. For me its a great place to start until the traffic picks up. I should be up this weekend also.

Scumfrog,
Was over looking for you friday night. Did'nt see any dogs on the beach so I assume you werent up? I was bored and just cruising......

I didn't have the dogs. The wife took them home. I was up all last week with my kids. I'm going to try and get this weekend off, if I do I might have to head up and hook up with you guys. The reason that bay gets all the boat traffic is Hillcrest has gas and it's almost all ways the calmest bay on the lake.

Sand did you know what place is ours?

Fish, not the ones from Mora. And you can't work all weekend on the cabin, LOL. Sand, I don't know if I can get out of work this weekend yet. But if I do we'll get together for sure. Have you been into Atkin lake yet? We went there on Thursday morning and didn't get any thing. Hay how old is your son. Mines 13 just and gets bored up there. Maybe the 2 of them could hang out. Does your son like dirt bikes? Or do you have a 4-wheeler? I got my boy a dirt bike.

Hey SCUMFROG,

That's almost exactly where our cabin is. We are the third from the resort towards the hill.

Not sure who you are. I don't spend much time at this forum. I just check it out once in a while. I have my own website with my own forum. In fact, I am a member of about 8 different forums that I check once in a while.

My brother and dad own the big log cabin by you. If that gives you a hint. We have owned that property since '67.

Not to be mean or any thing. But your brother has a girls name, right. We took him out fishing saturday on the pontoon. I was over there saturday after noon looking for a 19mm socket to fix our boat lift.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.

      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.

      I will also add to my above post that the discoveries of this disease in new areas like crow wing co. should not become a panic in that area and the whacking of deer in these areas is truly nonsense. What if one deer survives the mass killing that happens to be infected ,, well then what ? In a herd that annually is around one million in our state , having a handful of sick deer from CWD is not the end to our herd .How many deer actually do test positive from these stupid massive killings when all the bullets are done flying ?? Sooner or later with the now implementation of CWD testing , ,it’s gonna pop up  in new areas either naturally or by the existence of poor oversight and improper management of deer farms . So if this time it’s a deer in Crow Wing Co . So the DNR says let’s whack them all in that area , how bout when one happens to test positive next month in Lake of the woods co  , well let’s whack them all there too , and when one happens to test positive in Itasca or Hubbard co , well let’s whack them also . Before long we won’t have any deer left in our state with this stupid thinking , it won’t be the he disease itself that eliminated our deer herd , it’s the DNR that just eliminated our herd .. killing as many deer in a positive test area does nothing to help the problem..  on another note our DNR management of deer is terrible and many times quotas for upcoming seasons are determined by auto  insurance companies who pressure the state that these areas are carrying to many deer and the herd needs to be thinner in these areas , and thus lowering  the payouts to insured motorists who happen to hit a deer and make a claim. So then the state ups the permits and harvest in these areas to thin out the deer , ahhhh money the root of all evil. Nothing to do with a Biological stance whatsoever. And when these numbers don’t fall within quotas by permits to harvest these extra deer , well then find a deer in those areas that has CWD and kill them all , then the state says “there now we lowered those numbers “ and the insurance companies say thanks . Nooooooo dat don’t happen , does it ??? Hmmmmm !!

      We're not seasonal anymore but it's been within a week of the Opener before the ice has been out, 3 out of the last 4 years here.
    • Bigfatbert
      Deer farms need more oversight, they need to be strictly regulated with tougher regulations, and extremely  stiff penalties for lack of following these stricter regulations. Wasteful spending of tax payers money to curb this is just that “wasteful “... CWD is not new whatsoever . It first was discovered , I believe ,  way back in the 1960’s , that was when it was first noticed , so it obviously had been around  before that . So good Lord it’s darn near sixty years ,at least of existence  If it was going to be the death of all deer , well then it should of happened by now . Pockets of sickness will occur , but whacking out all the deer in any given area is nonsense. As is implementation of no recreational feeding is also nonsense in a social animal that deer naturally are . Licking , sniffing, sharing natural food sources already naturally occur with deer..It is for the most part a self elimination of the disease by death anyway.. Do what can be done with the farms , and don’t panic , things will be just fine . Time has proven this to be the case.. the numbers  after 60+ years of the existence of this disease speak for themselves ..  there are other deer diseases we should be more worried about anyway as they do  have the potential to setback the herd in large numbers , such as EHD .  Not much can be done to curb the spread of these more potential  deadly diseases either . It just is what it is ... all the more reason to control deer farms as that’s were things like EHD tend to start also .
