Wheeler's Point

5 posts in this topic

Heading up to Wheeler's point with a group this weekend (Thurs-Sun). Looking for some input as to how the bite has been, any lures we need to have and the fish house conditions. I've never been out of Wheeler's and don't know what to expect.

Thanks..

Plenty of posts on the area lately give them a good read over before you go and you'll have a good idea.

Pink jigs and rattlin varmits with either pink, or red or gold on them. I quit using a bare hook. A month ago that was the ticket this time was a very small pink jig with a minnow hooked eye to eye. Flasher was key. To trigger the strike I had to bring the fish up about a foot off the bottom and then they would either commit or go back to the bottom. Using a 1/4 oz jig was too big and I kept loosing the minnow. I went to a 1/16 oz crappie pink jig and that was the ticket. I also quit using the mono and went to crystal to get a better hook set. Good luck. Sure wish I was going again this year.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
