South Manor Pit Report


Recommended Posts

I hit the Southmost manor pit last evening. I was out there for about 3 hours and ended up with about 40 blue gills, 20 largemouth bass, & 2 crappies. I initially was using a plain hook and small piece of worm about 2-4 feet under a bobber. This produced prob 20 gills and a few largemouth. Later I changed it up and put on a 1/32 oz pink jig with a pink & white (scented) twister tail. There were times I went 5 casts with 5 fish. Slow retrival was key. Bring extra twister tails as I had about 5 bit off.

All the largemouth were about 7-10 inches. I had over 20 gills that went 8+ inches. The crappies were small. I didn't hit any crappies until just before dark.

Thanks for the report Tyler. Isn't that a awesome body of water? I have a brother that lives in the manor and he has about the same sucsess as you.

By south most, do you mean directly north of the hospitals parking lot?

Yes, I parked in the Mayo parking lot (hope that is legal) and walked north towards the water. I walked a bit to the east then north towards the point. Most fish were caught on the east shoreline and around the point.

it's my understanding that parking in the lot w/o being a Mayo employee is a no-no. I had security stop to talk w/ me one early Sunday morning. I had to show my Mayo parking tag. Was told it is due to insurance/liability purposes.

sorry to rain on your parade

Can anyone fully explain the legality of the CC Manor Pits. I was out there again tonight. I was going to park in the mayo parking lot (had my girlfriend with and her mayo badge) and the gates were closed so I couldn't walk north towards the water. One gate was locked, and the other was just shut and chained, but the padlock was unlocked.

I didn't want troble, so I stayed away. Then I went to the north pond (near the houses) and I saw people walking right past the "No Trespassing" sign & gate into the gravel area and fishing.

Is there already a thread that explains this?

At that Mayo lot Tyler on the far west side you will see a strip of grass and and a trail that goes to the north....likely where you walked the other day. There are a couple signs that say don't park on the grass and I think a couple empty steel posts. This is actually park department property and you can just pull off onto the gravel there and park. Try to keep your car as far off the roadway as possible.

The property between the parking lot and the driveway to Avalon cove on both sides of the parking lot drive is Mayo Foundation property, the City land starts about 150' north of the drive to the parking lot. The gravel area is Mayo property. Lachencrest LN(west end of north lake) is a public street that from which one could access both north and south lakes via the peninsula.

I don't think they really monitor that lot on the weekends, I have parked there on weekends 3 or 4 times this year with no trouble and no one else was parked there!

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
