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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
