Thanks for the tips.  I'll try to get the 9 year old on some bobber action.  


Stay safe and enjoy the north, I know I do!

Clear lake has a nice deep weed line outside of Haskins bay.  It is a great place to catch a lot of panfish.

Island is a good lake, fish around and in back of the islands and fish weds and points. Spider still has some good weeds and I fish deeper off of those. Fawn has really good panfish. 

getting out of Island may be the hardest part of a trip to Rest. There is one shallow part 1/2 way on the trip up the river where it widens into a bay that is shallow, just follow the channel markers and avoid the milk jugs. A nice slow ride, I often trailer between the two.

luck.

I've noticed a lot of crayfish in Island Lake.  Are all the lakes in the chain like that?

I've never checked out Rest Lake.  Is the channel going to it really shallow?  

I'm in search of fish.  In the water.  That keeps little kids and big kids happy and entertained ;)


Thanks for any experiences others have had

I have fished this chain a few times in the past years. Never did find much walleye, best bet was REST lake. Good for Bass and Pan Fish. I think the Rusty crayfish did a lot of damage to this chain.

Hello,I'm thinking about coming up to rent a cottage on spider lake in May. Never fished here. Is there a good walleye and crappie fishing? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Thank you ESOX.  That makes me feel a little better.  I have a home on the second lake of Little Manny so getting out can get hairy but if they start the draw on Oct 1st I should be fine.

The chain is near full pool right now.  They start the drawdown October 1st and by the 10th or 15th you should start thinking seriously about pulling your boat, although I have been on the chain after the 20th and still can navigate — if you know the water very well!  The channel from Fawn to Clear will be difficult at that point, but the Rest Lake (or Greer’s) launch should be fine.  The intention is for the water to be fully drawn down by the end of October (nearly 4 feet where I am!), but this can be greatly dependent on the weather.  Never liked the “procedure”  as it limits fall fishing opportunities —and I’ve lost a few props over the years.

Harpo, 

A week to 10 days seems pretty fast.  Are you certain?  I have a place on Little Manitowish and I usually come up the second weekend in Oct...(8th) to pull boats out of the water.  I have never had an issue but now you have me worried??

Water level begins to drop on October 1st. It usually takes a week to 10 days to get to winter levels
