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'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
