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.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
