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 thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
