Many Point

8 posts in this topic

I was just wondering if anyone had any knowledge they would be willing to share on catching walleyes on Many Point this time of year. I fish it in the fall with some success. But, have never fished it in the summertime. We are taking the family up for a week following the Fourth. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

I will be up there for a week camping following the 1st. grin.gif I've only fished from shore, so I can't help you with the walleyes except that I think they're beyond my casting range. smirk.gifI catch a lot of largemouths and rock bass but that's about it. Any info. would be helpful.

Many Point was one of the best lakes in the area in the 80's. Then the spearers from Ulen/Hitterdall took the big northerns out in the early 90's. Now it has a lot of small northerns that compete with walleyes for food. Walleyes have been in tough shape since then. Same thing with Round and Elbow. All three were great walleye lakes until the 90's. Many Point has great structure throughout the lake. Look for bait fish schools and fish under them. Otherwise you'll be looking for quite a while with all the structure. As with other lakes, fish the widy side, especially in the boulders.

Good Luck, the lakes well worth being there.

I don't know much about Many Point, but know that the diminishing walleye in Elbo did not come from spearers, it came from netting.

Thanks for the advice. I'll try and post how it went when I get home. I have fished Many Point a couple of times in the fall with pretty good success. wink.gif

You are right about Elbow. Unfortunately, the result is the same.

No blame. Nobody knew it would result that way. But I was there and a majority of the houses were from that area. Some folks don't get to fish until winter. Thats when they hit it pretty hard.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
