I know this topic has been brought up before, but I couldn't find it. If anyone else has any luck please link it...

I am planning a trip to Ken-Mar-Ke, which is just south of Cyrus Road, in early March. How far out does 4 mile bay end? We will be driving out & fishing out of pop-ups, and I don't want to get stuck in an area where we can only keep 2 fish if they are biting.

Perhaps someone could draw up a map and post it?

Thanks.

You can easily google a map of Lake of the Woods and 4-mile Bay.

I believe 4-mile Bay gets it's name because it is approximately 4 miles from the mouth of the Rainy River at Wheeler's Point, to the Pine Island Gap, where the Rainy River spills into Lake of the Woods.

The 2 fish limit includes the Rainy River and 4-mile Bay. Once out on the lake you can keep 4 walleyes and 4 saugers in aggregate, with no more than 4 being walleye.

As long as you are West of Morris Point/Pine Island, you are considered on the lake. The resort you are staying with will certainly provide any details and information you need about the area you plan to fish.

Best of luck to you, and please post back with a report of your results!

So is this somewhat what the 4 Mile Bay encompasses? (Everything south of the big red line)

Not even close, you need to be zoomed way in to see what you need too.

google search lake of the woods satalite view you will easily see pine island on that map. if you draw your same line anything north of pine should be good, south of pine your on a 2 fish limit. i say view the satalite map because you will have no luck actually getting pine island to show up on a google maps or mapquest or anything unless its the satalite view.

Ok, so it's more like this one then? Crazy how such a large land mass doesn't even shop up on the dang map.

Yep, there you go. That's why it didn't look right the first time with the other map.

There ya' go! Now, if you look at the south end of your red line you see a long "hook shaped" spit of land. That's Morris Point.

You can walk out pretty much anywhere straight north of there, after you park in the Morris Point Resort parking lot, and start fishing for pike in water anywhere from 4-10 feet of water.

We often walk out from there at first ice, only a few minutes walk to 17-20 ft of water, and do very well. Bajillions of pike follow the southern shore of the lake heading toward the river each spring, and almost all of em' filter right past that point!

You hit it at the right time, on the right day, and you'll be runnin' for flags till your out of bait, out of film, and just plain sick of it!

If the pike don't cooperate you can simply walk out a little further, maybe 1/4 to 1/2 mile, and you'll find yourself in 17+ feet of water. Little tip...wink wink...the walleyes follow the same path as the pike into the river in the spring!
