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.

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
