Location of cabins in park/Spring Tips

Recommended Posts


Ok, I couldnt quite swing the yearly ice outing with my coworkers last week BUT there is still hope. We were able to reserve a camper cabin at the state park from June 1- June 5. The last (and only) time we tried open water was about the same time frame two or 3 years ago and the fishing was nothing short of phenomenal. At that time we camped and the cabins were being built I think. It was a little rainy and cool so a cabin will be nice. My question is, has anyone used the cabins and knows if they are on the river like the campsites so you can pull your boat up on shore overnight? The campground map doesnt show the cabins and the reservation by phone is through somewhere in Indiana (at least thats where my card was billed to) so they couldnt offer any info other than the campground map.

Man I cant wait! Either way we are still going. The wife HAD to grant a kitchen pass because her cousin from New Jersey wants to come out and experience mn fishing. ITS A DONE DEAL!!!!

Any info will be greatly appreciated. Any fishing tips will be appreciated as well.

Had cabin #1 last year for opener. Boated over 600 walleyes in 10 days. If you anchor on the shoreline break and jig with minnow you can't miss. If your baot is moving you're going too fast. Cabins are across the road from river and south of the office. Cabin dock is across from cabin #1

So there is a dock for the cabins then. We boated over 300 eyes in 2.5 days. I still prefer the crappies and will cover as much water as I have to to search them out smile.gif

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
