Walleye Fishing out of Long Point?

5 posts in this topic

I'm Planning on bringing my son to LOW for his first time 3/14 to 3/16 and was wondering if there's any good action to be had out there? Thanks

I've had pretty good luck out there this year an some tough luck too. I'm in 32' the hole year, I'll be up there that weekend also cordinating a 4-H group of about 22 people. I've had my best luck with a plain orange hook under a bobber while jigging on my vex, they take the set line more often than jigging an orange for a hook so far works best. Boar

Thanks for the info on colors. I'm assuming shiners are the bet for bait. Good luck with your 4-H Group sounds like you'll have your hands full, but a great fish fry f they're bitting.

cbek, Ive done better on chubs, I feel they want a little more fat in their diet to gear up for the spawn. I done well on shinners earlier in the year but really have better luck on chubs with the approaching spawn. But get a variety just in case. Boar

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!

      MN DNR is the most authoritative resource even though it may take a little getting used to. You can also study the contours on this website to identify humps and holes.   Minnesota Fishing Contours

      Looking for a freeze up on Friday.  Temps will have been favorable for over a week and then the wind lets up.

      I am not that talented to carve and paint like that. But I love wooden duck decoys.
