Long Point in January

5 posts in this topic

We are going to Long Point early January. Have always fished the Rainy River area this time of year. Do the walleye bite out on Long Point this time of year too? I suspect they do, just want to be sure I'm not steering my group to an area that would be better at some other time.

Thanks for your input.

I have had good luck on Long Point in past years, but it was February. We will be in portables.

If all else fails go way way out there away from everyone (at least a mile or two),away from the nearest soul, fishhouse, and dead burbout. Get in 34fow and catch all the sauger you want with an occasional tullibee, eye, lawyer, and perch mixxed in. You will think you are the sauger-king. If only i could find that elusive sauger in the summertime....

Trip is all set up, can't wait for January. People from down south would think I'm nuts for saying that, but everyone here understands.

We fish LP most of the time all winter with very good success. January is usually better than February. Hope you have a great time.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
