Long Point???

3 posts in this topic

Hey fellas, just wondering if trucks are being let out yet on long point? I'm headed up tomorrow night (Thursday) with the 8x8 portable. Any word on the bite? Depth? If not does anyone have any other spots that have been hitting? crazy.gif Any help would appreciated. Thanks

King Fisher,

I was up at Long Point on Saturday. They were letting vehicles out. Ice was about 15-16 inches where we were fishing. Probably more on the road and probably a bit more after the cold today. Fishing was slow for us. We were in 26'. Got 5 keepers and a few smaller ones. No bites between 12:30pm and 4:30. Morning bite was best. Went to Zipple bay on Sunday and did better. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Thanks for the report. Hopefully their biting by the time we get up there. I might try fishin in the 20-22 foot range. I like fishing shallower early in the year. I seem to have better luck that way. Either way we'll be heading to Zippel too if their not cooperating. Happy fishing.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
