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.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
