A question for LOTW

Recommended Posts

A buddy an I are coming up to the lake on March 16-18 along with a few of the guys he works with. We are staying at a motel in the Wheeler's Point area. I was looking at the reg book today, and it says for Four Mile Bay, the walleye/sauger limit is 2 and anything over 19.5" must be returned to the water.

My question is this. When we go out from wheeler's point, the area from there to Pine Island, is that considered Four Mile Bay, or is Four Mile Bay on the north side of Pine Island? I am just curious, cause I kinda wanted to try all over and move around a bit, but if fishing on the south side of the island means 2 fish, then I will make sure to go over to the other side. Could one of our many experts please chime in and help me out?

The area to the south and east of Pine is Four Mile Bay. Although you can't keep anything over 19.5", this is a good area to catch and release a true trophy walleye as the spawn starts to kick in. And by the way I am no expert.

Thanks,

That is exactly what I thought. When do they start to move down to 4 Mile Bay? Is March 16-18 going to be a good time to fish in there for the pigs or is that too early? This will be the first trip up for my buddy and me so we really look forward to doing some exploring. If they will be in the 4 mile bay area at that time, what would be some good depths to look for them in?

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
