Any reports from Long Point?

3 posts in this topic

I am heading up on the 31st and wondering what the word is on Long Point/Rocky. Any certain depth?

The last time i was out was before Christmas so my report is only as good as that. We fished the mud in front of Arnesen's and got slow action and ended with 8 walleyes for 4 of us. Fished 12 mile the next day and had 14 walleyes, plus 4 slot fish in 24-25 feet of water. Any deeper than that it was slow. Also fished several spots around Cookers for about an hour graphing 0 fish. pink buckshots was best bait on 12 Mile and gold Angel Eyes was best on the mud.

We were there last Friday, so nothing fresh, we have been up to Long Point 3 times on the ice this year, the walleye & sauger have been a little slow, but we have been limiting out or near limits on walleye each time with a few sauger mixed in, very nice sized fish, some over the slot had to be returned also. We have been in 24-25 fow, but I think its time to try 27-28. Good luck.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
