Thinking about moving?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I am out of Mac's Twin Bay and am in 15 ft of water over gravel (hawkbill) Wondering if it is worth the move to a little deeper water? We are catching some perch and that is the only reason I am not sure. What do others think. McQuoids has a bunch of rentals near me so I don't think I am in a bad spot just wondering if I should go a little deeper. Thanks everyone for the posts.

I was probably one of your neighbors this weekend. We fished in one of McQuiod's houses out of Twin Bay, in 15 feet and caught 2 whole perch. The people we talked to at the various bars all said they were in 25-30 feet, and most of them had at least caught a walleye or two. One of them had caught a 30 incher. I think the resorts are less inclined to move their houses, and that is why they are still in 15 feet. With the numerous houses sitting out a 1/4 mile, I would assume the fishing has to be better out there, otherwise those people would be moving in.

Charles,
I would set tight were you are, I moved my shack out to the gravel bar on the saddle in 28-29' and all I ended up doing was catching 2 walleye but, not catching any perch so I move back shallow after trying a few more deep holes. I geuss since the fishing is poor I just wanted to atleast be kept busy teasing perch. My 2c

I too was wondering about moving. I am also out of Mac's. We are in 24' about a mile out, and have caught a few walleyes (6", 17", 25", 27"), 2 pout and ONE perch. Thats all in that spot, nothing more besides a few bites. been in the same spot for a month. I have been reading the posts on here and haven't found a good enough reason to move yet.
Everyday we get closer to the end of the season I know that the cost of those fish keep going up. Be nice if i could actually eat one!
O well, guess its not just the fish that count, after all its fishing, not catching.

Yeah I am thinking that I am just going to stay where I am at. I at lease catch perch there. I will normaly bring up a few keepers every weekend. So I look at it that not many people are even able to catch any fish to keep so there is a few +'s to the whole shallow thing. I think I will just hit the deep water with my portable and leave the base where she sits. Thanks everone for the replies though exactly the type of info I was looking for!

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
