Hello everyone out on the sheet. I'm looking for a report over by wheelers point! Five friends of mine and myself are heading up to a couple of sleepers on thursday-sunday. We are bringing portables also in case we don't catch them in the houses. Any info you can give is appreciated, have great fishing !

I was fishing the Long Point area Thursday-Sunday and I had the best bite in around 30ft. We didn't catch alot of walleyes but the saugers and perch were sure cooperative. Each day we fished it appeared they wanted something different. One day the chubby darter and a sutton spoon were hot and the next day they wouldn't touch those lures. Overall for us, the nucleus jig proved to be best.

Thanks for the reports guys! grin.gif We'll be in the Long Point houses and won't have room for the portables so there won't be too much moving around. Any pattern as to the colors?

Gold fireeye's with a chub or shiner pounding off the bottom worked well last Friday, also gold rock-n-rolls, even the chubby darter got some action. It vary's from day to day, most of our luck has come on the gold rock-n-rolls, some days shiners other days chubs. Pink/white, and gold angleeyes worked best with shiners. Good luck.

I don't remember who makes the jig, but it has a somewhat flat larger head tapered back, with the hook extended out from the jig, it hangs horizontal. The gold jig has little red painted eyes. Most likely every bait shop or resort would have them up there. Maybe someone else could explain it better than I have.

Fishing was good for us Thursday to Sunday last weekend, with Fri. being the best. Had enough to eat, and brought some home. I had the sauger hole, caught a higher percentage of them than others in my group. We were in 24-27 feet of water (transducer set at the bottom of the ice).

Bring your long underwear, it is going to be cold up there......

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
