Flats?

Recommended Posts

Fathead

Hello all,

Wondering if anyone has been out on the flats lately? Namely the eastern flats...Boot, Fishers, Blue Jug, Agates Needle (technically a north flat)?

I have not seen much traffic on this subject, which leads me to believe that either people are not fishing them much, or they're keeping their successes Hush Hush.

Six of us are heading out to Fishers (we think) this Saturday. Last year we did very well for both eyes and perch (however, last year was a good year everywhere).

Just looking for feedback on whether you have been out there, if things are going, and what seems to be the setup that has been the "ticket".

Has anyone been drving out to these flats from Terry" Boat Harbor? How far are people driving trucks out. Sorry to ask this question but as of the recent weather, I opt not to fish the big lake yet.

On sunday while driving down 169 between Garrison and the Casino, there was a really large yellow sign that advertised "Road to the Flats $7" Sorry I can't be more specific about the location or the name of the resort, I wasn't paying too close attention. Hope that helps.

Stay away from Terry's Boat Harbor. They dont have access to the flats and the place is a dump and hes a bad attitude. No customer service at all.

I have to disagree on Terry's, the crew there usually provides really good info(usually the best I can get on Milly) They are fair and nice to easy to get along with. To be fair, yes the place is kind of a dive. I don't think you will see him or any other resort owners post on here though, seems like they never do. Every year he plows roads to the flats like 8 mile and Seguchie. I stoped in and talked to him 2 weeks ago and people were only allowed to go out in wheelers to the flats and I doubt he has had enough cold weather since then to make a road. Other great resorts to go out of are Myr mar(usually plows out to 8 mile) and Red door(plows to a number of smaller flats like bombeck) Both run a clean 1st class operation and seem to appreciate the business and want to help you find fish.

      Just got back from LOTW fishing for us was slow. But if you put the time in and watch your electronics it can still be good. We're fishing in 32ft lot of small fish just need to keep the hook away from them several good fish still coming thru. A few slot fish up to 26 1/2 inches walleyes 15 to 17 saugers 14 to 16 lot of water under the snow in spots.

      Thanks for the report.  I didn’t hear any news from my buddy’s last trip up there so I assumed it was bad.  I texted and asked; yup it was bad.  He’s finally burned out for the ice season after the back to back bad trips and putting his gear away.     One of his buddies did an 8 man/5 day trip for lakers in another part of Ontario.  8 fish total.   I agree, it can get better before the end though if a couple things work out weather wise.

      I say that if this gets passed, those lakes are on their own, no stocking, nothing supported by the dnr, if they want their lake all to themselves, they can support it.

      Mar 19, 2019 Wright County AIS public meeting recap:   The Wright County passed the AIS ordinance with a 3 to 2 vote. Now it is entirely up to the DNR commissioner to approve it. The Wright County commissioners said that if the DNR does not approve it by April 15th, the whole proposal is dead for good.   Here are some more details from the meeting. There were about 50 people attending, 99% lake shore owners. They all applauded the proposed ordinance (except for the self-certification part). One after another they spoke about how much trouble their lake is in and how much it has cost them to keep AIS at bay. They did a great job of presenting “the sky is falling” to the county commissioners (I always find it interesting that there is no mention of restrictions on lake shore owners using lawn fertilizer that turns the lakes into a green slimy mess. Seems to me that would be a no brainer if you really cared about the lake). Most made a point that they are not trying to privatize their lake and are offended when they hear that. On the other hand, not once did anyone mention that we need to come up with a better way that does not restrict access. Only one lone fisherman addressed the council and said that he bypassed the three test lakes last year and will bypass the additional lakes if this passes, too much hassle. Hmm, funny how that works. Imagine if this catches on and all the lakes are restricted, sell the boat I guess. There was also mention of a need for an exit inspection process. Not sure what that means, but didn’t sound like it would be in lieu of the proposed inspections and you may end up having to get inspected before and after you go to the lake.   Also of interest, the commissioners said they have received many inquiries from lake associations around the state and there were several other lake association representatives at the meeting to observe and see how they could implement this same strategy. So Wright County will be the test case for every county in the state to run with this. What a disastrous precedent. Not to mention the regulations and tags would be different for every county, making it cumbersome and impractical. The self-certification will have a cost of $10 to $40, so multiply that by how many counties you fish.   What you can do if you want to stop this from happening: The entire fate of this proposal now rest on the DNR. The Wright County commissioners will meet with the DNR commissioner on Mar 21. If the DNR does not approve the plan by April 15, it will be dead. Send your concerns to these DNR contacts right away so that they receive it before they meet with the Wright County people.   [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]     PS,  you can read the emails send to Wright County on this link. Notice how organized the lake associations are with their form letter that you just sign and send. In particular, notice the one from the Clearwater association #34 on the page (see where this is heading?). http://www.co.wright.mn.us/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/6489?fileID=13556

      I just checked the Two Harbors webcam, and it’s still frozen. However, the ice cutter was in the background carving out the shipping lanes. Personally, I think the ice season on the big pond is over!
