Long Point Report 1st @ 2nd

7 posts in this topic

Boy I did'nt think we'd do as well as we did. Sat. was the slowest day an quit about 3 o'clock to give my daughter an her friend time to pal around at the cabin, brought back six for the day. Sunday was better an it really picked up in the middle of the snow that came in an when the snow stoped, so did the fish. all in all the 3 of us brought home just short of 3 limits. put back lots of little ones, from 4 to 6 to 8 inches long. good to see a variety of good healthy year classes up incoming. the girls out fished me, man is it great to watch them master the old school hand over hand method, man dose it take alot of patience to sit there an untangle the old school hand over hand method dacron fishing line. But, thats what it's all about. whatching them squeel an giggle as they bring in a fish an then act all cool an diva like afterwards, Lots of fun. Later boar

Yea I'm still ove by Twin Islands, 32'. Havent heard of anything from birch beach at all, The best set up that works for me is to have one jigging hole an a orange hook under a ice buster bobber trimed down to almost nuetral bouyancy. I'm sure we would have caught alot more bigger fish if it was'nt for the unstable weather patterns. Not going to make this weekend have a big honeydo list. Later boar

I always love to read your reports. Your love for your children and spending time with them really comes through. Halle and Abbey are gonna be terrific pals.

Glad to hear that you really got into em' again on Sunday. You must be getting fat on Walleyes this winter!

I'm really looking forward to spending time back on the water with you bud! It's been a long time.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
