Two of us were up there for the 2nd time yesterday, this year the bite seems to start later in the day than previous years for us, we did not have much action until 11:00 which lasted till around 2 PM, by this time we had our limit of eyes, a 21 inch throw back, some smaller throw backs, we also kept 5 sauger. We are still fishing 24-25 fow, yesterday a gold rock and roll with a chub pounded on the bottom and held up a few inches produced the best for me.

We used the snowmobile and weaved our way SE between the ice chunks down to the Birch Beach area.

They were not letting any pickup's out yet, there is an active breaker a short distance from the resort that was flooding and making things a little difficult for crossing. It shouldn't be long before you can drive out.

Kingfisher,

It is amazing how the ice piled up by Birch Beach isn't it? Long Point looked real good besides the breaker being active and even most of the lake that I have fished as of late is decent for traveling. I know some of those ice piles are 8' high in places for sure.

kingfisher, just wondering my wife and i will be up and plan on driving a pickup to one of longpoint houses the weekend of 1-11-08 and I know this depends on the weather but you being up there alot etc do you think the road will be pickup accessable by then, met you at the resort a couple of times so probably will again this year, anyway, just your opinion

grpd, The 15 day forecast looks like moderate temps. with lows near zero or below, my guess is that pickups will be going good by then. We are going up this Friday will check it out and give a report.

Hey Windy, I see you are in business on the lake, hope you do well and keep those Snowbears off the ice piles.

Dumb question, but does Long Point plow a road in the winter time?

My dad used to put a house out there back when I was really young. We stopped going in the early 90's. Since then when we have gone we always fish out of wheelers or morris.

tearin'lips; yes; and they do a very good job of it, keeping bridges passable, plowing up to your house if needed, etc.

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
