Prothro's Post on the Angle

8 posts in this topic

Only two weeks until we head up for a full week of vacation. YEA! Can't wait to get the heck out of town. This is my most favorite vacation of the year. We have a group of 8 plus a 3 month old going this year. Should be a blast. Anyone been up there yet this year? Hows the fishing?

RR,

I will let you know what the 411 is when I get back. I am heading up on the 2nd and will be back on the 7th. I am trying to get some info for fishing northern and bass up there. I will be doing alot of eye fishing also. I have a friend that lives up there and he says the eyes have been snapping but it has been so hot lately. Will keep you informed.

I recomend large spinner baits and loads of top water buzz baits if it's calm. in and around cocacola reef...WHITE. thats if your going to boat up to Canada.....Whats up REEF?

see you up there. by the way did you ever post the question. How long it would take to get to the angle by boat? from say the rainy river?

From Warroad to the angle it's about 40 miles, and takes less than an hour in my boat on a calm day.

Well we all had a great time up there this year!! We did not make our limits but there were plenty of fish to catch and throw back. We bumped into allot of 22 and 23 inchers. They sure were fun to catch. We still had plenty Walleyes to eat and brought back a few a piece to put in the freezer.

I caught a 43 inch musky on the Canada side and thought I was king, but the highlight of the trip was the 50 inch musky that my wife caught. We were trolling around with leaches and jig heads. She had 6 pound test line on and we still managed to land her. WOW what a fight and what a fish.

We are happy to report that she went back very well.

So thanks to all for the advise and if you want to know what the musky are biting on. Try a Jig head with a leach.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?

      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
