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.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff

      Another observation from the tournament and pre-fishing: On LOW I don't usually get very concerned about colors on cranks. However, Friday and Sat, the UV white with pink striped top shad rap was doing about 6 to 1 in the mornings. Afternoons, the gold foil rap was by far our best color. I'm a bit color blind, but pretty sure that UV rap has pink on the top. Wonder what fish actually see...........not much pink striped stuff swimming around the big lake.

      1/18 Day 4   Day for was exploration Day for the family.  Amanda, the kids, and my mother in law spent a good portion of the hanging out in town.  Shopping and visiting a few of the local attractions.   The father in law and myself decided to pull his boat and go explore a near by lake we have been thinking about.  This would give us s little change of pace.   Fishing actually exceeded our expectations, especially for starting in the early afternoon. Unsure where to start we motored around watching the graph if an area I thought might be good.  after a short while we noticed most marks showed themselves in 18-21 ft on steep breaks.  With the winds blowing we decided to try anchor on top and let the wind drift us over the and bobber fish.  This began to seem unproductive after about 45 mins with no bites, yet we were marking fish.  Out of bordem I decided to raise up 5 ft and cast as far as i could to the top of the break (15ft).  The first 3 casts produced 3 walleyes 15"-18". The bobber never settled before they went down!  The walleyes them slowed but the perch bit really picked up.  Most perch where 9" but a few went as big as 11".   After that spot slowed we hit a few similar spots until we settled on a spot bit deeper but with lots of marks.  This spot would give us pretty non stop action till dark.  With different species rotating through. By the end of the day we caught: 12 walleyes ranging from 11"-21". 5 Pike 20"-30" and one really big one that bit a 10" perch as it was being reeled in by the FIL. Countless Perch, not many under 9"or over 10". And a few dozen bluegills 7.5"-10".   Service here is giving me fits with photos. Hope to post some when i get home this weekend

      Perchy - Insured?  If so, the adjuster will have some recommendations, off the record, on places for repair.

      For all you jigging rap fans out there are you generally jigging those vertically or on the move.   I seen some discussion earlier on the front hook and one thing that I have heard about that hook is a lot of people do take it off in order to prevent snags. I have donated quite a few jigging raps in the past to rocks on the big V I have donated quite a few drinking wraps in the past to rocks on the big v

      Help! I need to get estimates to have the transom repaired/replaced on my 2002 Lund due to an accident and have no idea where to go? I live in Owatonna. Thanks in advance!

      Not on mine either!!

      Every store is different as to what they have in stock so if your looking for a specific thing in your size you might have to hit a couple. I went to the Duluth store for my bibs.   Yes a lot of the stuff is still too expensive for going out of business sale prices.
