Or I should say I wasn't upset with people coming out by Saturday night most spout's off by themselves had been filled in and would have required a move again. I too like TBONE99 said didnt like the trucks going by at mach 1 no more the 20 yards from my shack slown down for christ sake and move over a little.


I was just feeling your frustration. I have too many times been on the lake, either in a rental sleeper or in a portable, and had folks set up about on top of me. For some reason URL is really bad for that, no matter how far out you are. One year I was staying in one of Bearpaw's cabins and sledding out with the portable. I was out close to 2 miles past the end of Westwinds road, with just myself and the father in law bouncing form spot to spot. I hear a rumble off a ways and think "no way". Sure enough, within 5 minutes two guys in a truck pull up within 50' and get out. They had just crossed almost 2 miles of open ice.

Glad you had a good weekend, wish I had made it up but family obligations kept me home. First time since 2003 that I did not make a trip to URL between Xmas and New Years

Sorry. Yes, traffic will shut down your bite. You either move farther out than the masses or find a spot that's been overlooked on the way out. URL is shallow and traffic kills a bite usually. The mantra on red has been spread out and prosper. But good luck these days, or should I say this year (again)

Same thing here did very well way out till Saturday about 10am then the hoards came and there had to have been 100 trucks go by at 30mph 75 feet from the shack on Saturday day and night. then the fish shut down I would think that had something to do with it.

Ya think???????

On URL you need to be on your own. Been that way since the crappie days.
It's a shallow lake, fish it like your fishing bull gills..... You don't want anyone within 100 yards of you!!!!

Someone who has fished it since 2002............

No Worries
It is on Williams island after all LOL!
The Hoist Bay site just seems really dark to me, tho we have stayed there a few times over the years of first-come first-served.
I'd just rather have a site with afternoon/evening sun than morning sun.

We have stayed at Williams North about 10 times, in fact we were the first campers to stay there when the site was established. It is by far a nicer site than south.

Better breezes, awesome sunsets, swimming right off the rock, and in the evening you can throw a slip bobber off and have a realistic chance at eyes or smallies.
It has a protected dock, and tho its a little hike to haul your gear to the tent area, really not bad. Nice pines give you plenty of shade in camp and the exposed rocks a place to catch some rays if you want.

The site that Janderson is talking about up on the big rock is actually Hoist Bay site #N12. It also has a dock but faces north/Ne which I don't prefer.

The south site (my in-laws have stayed there 4 times, (and were just there 6/15 to 6/22) has a soft shoreline landing. Its very flat (the reason my in-laws like it, as they are 75) and can be buggy. Not nearly as scenic as north. It does face south and gets a little more boat traffic closer to camp, but not much difference there.

If you have a choice of spots, personally (obviously ) I would take North all week and twice on Sunday.

That time of year most of your eye fishing will be a ways away from camp, looking in those 26-34' rock reef areas during the day. You can hit spurts in the early AM/late PM where they will come shallower to 20-22 but they are short lived and you gotta be there when they are.

Have fun!! My family and I will be portaging over Kettle Falls and be on Blueberry island in early August. Before that we'll be on the East end of Namakan next week for 5 days, and then spending another 5 days late July in the Wolf Packs. Final trip of summer is a late August guys trip staying at Daymarker 23 (N5) for 4 days. Somewhere in there I will spend my 400th night camping in the park since first going there in 1997!!!! Hope I've got another 400 in me

Seafoam


X 2

1 gallon of 91 non-oxy gas, 1.5 oz of Amsoil Sabre synthetic oil, mixed with 1 oz seafoam for all your 2 stroke small engines (blower, trimmer, chainsaw, auger etc)

No more having to have 3 cans of different mixed gas.

If you want to do an engine "cleaning", add a little extra seafoam to a tankful and it can help some.

You will love fishing out of Chris's boat! And he will find you fish!
With what's looking like an early spring the action may be a bit further out than the last two years, which will spread folks out more too.
There's a good chance I'll be out there that weekend somewhere with my son trolling too. I'll try to let you know how the spring bite goes, I'm hoping to be out the first weekend of April!!
