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.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
