Macs Twin Bay - Any Reports?

Recommended Posts

Going to Macs Twin Bay - any have fishing reports? Anyone stayed at Mac's? Do they move their houses frequently?

We were out of Mac's Friday thru Sunday. Very nice house, but only 1 Perch caught out of the rental all weekend. It looked like the house had been recently moved, because there wasn't any yellow or tracks around the house when we arrived.

I would plan on just using the rental house as a "Base Camp" and getting mobile to catch fish. You can drive a vehicle almost anywhere on the lake. We went from North of Mac's, down to Wahkon Bay by vehicle and didn't have any problems. Just had to find a way around a couple heaves. Ended up with about 30 jumbos, a 27" Walleye, and a 26",30" and 36" Pike. Saw all of the Pike on the camera and wouldn't have caught them without it. All of the fish seemed very tight lipped and not very agressive or hungry.

My reccomendation would be to stay somewhere on shore at night and fish portable during the day. Much cheaper and less hassle.

bdp323,

I am going to be up there this weekend, I asked for a similar report a few weeks ago and all said it was a nice place to stay and good service. Will see how the fishing is this weekend.

Garagelogic,

Any depths, structure work better for you last weekend?

Thanks for the tip - we'll be bringing a portable and be using the shack as a home base. Hopefully we'll get into something..

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      Really small scallops

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
