Spots within walking distance


Recommended Posts

Can anyone suggest a spot or two from which I may be able to walk from shore to good fishable water for walleye? I don't have a wheeler or snowmobile so I want to limit it to a shorter distance. Not looking for anybody's secret spots, just general info of places to walk from for a guy not risky enough to drive, but too poor to own a wheeler/sled.

I was out with my pontiac sunbird over the weekend. Lots of cars and trucks out there. My buddy had his VW Passat out there, we even saw a Mercedes driving around.

You could walk out of the public access by the casino and fish the rocks on the north side of indian point.

I bet youd pick up a few in the evening. Keep quiet and don't use a lantern or a bright light and try to get away from people.

That is a VERY long walk. vineland bay has good perch and pike, eyes are a bit scarce. but pulling a portable out to indian point will kill most men. i once went out there from shore in vineland and will NEVER do it again. Bekters flat out from the casino launch is doable, perch and eyes, i got a 26' out there last year but no hot spot.

Thanks for the info guys, I appreciate it. After some more reading, I am thinking that driving out may be OK if I stick to the resort's roads. I was just erring on the side of caution with all of the warm weather.

I'm out of Barnacle's and their roads are the best I've seen anywhere in recent memory. I usually drive out in a Geo and I haven't had a problem all winter. I'd use a resort road for sure, the fee is well worth the ease of driving close to a decent spot (just don't drill or set up on the road).

Good Luck,

I'm not talking about walking out to the actual point on the other side of the island.

If you think Bekters is a short walk, then walk out that far then hook a right and fish close to shore in the rocks.

I checked on my Lakemaster software on my computer. It's about a mile walk. Bekters is .9 of a mile.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick
