Looking for a Wheelers report....


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,I've posted here many times in recent weeks asking about ANYTHING a person can pass along regarding their experiences on LOTW this winter out of Wheelers/the south shore. I konw about the dirty water and stuff. My group of buddies and I are going up presidents day weekend and would like to find out more about the river bite I've been hearing of. OR what are things like out of Bostic Creek and Morris point gaps? Apparently, that is where wheelers houses are. We have a house rented, but also may go mobile if need be. Thank you for any help you can give. We did well 12 miles out on the mud 2 years ago, but it sounds like that is not really the case this year??? Hope for the best and drink lot o' beer I guess. Good luck to all... grin.gif

We were just up 1st-4th of Feb. fished out of Adrian's shacks which they have 10.5 miles out and had a decent trip. Four of us took home limits with a mix of nice perch.. over 80 fish taken. Not the hot bite but kept us busy.. We fished 4 mile bay in the mornings for better walleye sized and moved to the deep shacks after 8-8:30, and moved shallow again around 3:30. Bite was slow shallow but bigger walleyes. Looks like the bite is improving and the best rigs were plain glow green #6,#8 hooks with shiners although red glow devils produced well and green jigs..plain hooks tight to the bottom and jigs up off worked...good, the river bite was 1/2 ounce glow jigs with shiners bouncing on the bottom. Not sure if I would want to stay on the river all day..morning and evening bite tends to be the times....good luck

P.S, there was a large group of private shacks beyond us at the end of Adrian's road, much activity but did not check to see how they were doing...

The public access and Borderview resort are between the two resorts you mention. The 2 resorts are about a half a mile apart.

Thanks fisky. So if I pay at either resort I use the same road? The reason I ask is that someone told me to drive out from Adrians to get to a spot and I wasn't sure exactly where Adrians was.

It's a little confusing because you have Adrian's Resort, where you stop and pay for the road access and minnows, etc. if needed. Then, you continue down the road past Borderview, the access, and Wheeler's Point Resort. Just past Wheeler's Point Resort, the road makes a rounding left-hand turn. That is where Adrian's road accesses Four Mile Bay to the right. That's the ice road you take out. Hope this makes sense.

The river bite I was talking is actually the 4 mile bay area. Approx. 9-10 feet of water where we were at. As for bait you have Log Cabin on the same road to Wheelers or when you pay the road fee to use Adrian's road(if driving yourself) you can get a small styrofoam cooler with about 3 dozen shiners for $7.50 from Adrian's resort...good luck

      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

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
