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......

      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.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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
    • LBerquist
      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
