Angle/Flag Island

7 posts in this topic

Hey all couple buddies and my self heading up to flag island the day after christmas. Was just wondering if their are any reports coming out of that area yet. Also is their a road plowed to the islands yet. I know that all this snow slowed the ice making quite abit. Making me worried were going to have to shell out extra cash if we cant drive out. Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday.

Thanks Ron

I'm sure the roads will be fine. Dan from Angle Inn told me he has never seen a year when the ice road wasn't open on the 26th. Don't sweat it.

Are you going with a kid named Donnell? They told me to watch out for him - he's a crazy one.

I would call ahead just to be sure. As of today the road isn't open to Flag. Sounds like there is a lot of slush with all the snow. With some luck the road might be open and the ice will be OK by Christmas.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      I use a big zip tie that will slide on and off.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
