      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Resorts anywhere near Falcon island

Recommended Posts

I am trying to plan a trip for next year for our group of guys and need help. At first I thought we would go on a fly in, but after missing our annual LOTW trip this year with a different group of guys and hearing the stories again, and hearing Big G-in the Canada forum talk about leaving the fly-in for LOTW I decided were going to LOTW and that's final. <BR>The help I need is that I have always stayed at Oak Island Resort, but they are full at the time I want to go (Early-Mid June). Does anyone know of any resorts I can contact near the Oak Island/Falcon Island vicinity? I have contacted Bonnie Brae, Oak Island, Bay Store, and Sunset. <BR>Thanks in advance for any help,<BR>Greg

Go to the resort locater on this site. There are several at the Angle, some on the river at American Point. If one is full, ask for the phone numbers of the others. A couple are on the Canadian side and up at Mounment Bay. Ask one of the resorts for help in getting a resveration, they'll all want to help each other fill up....Kaz

Check out "Anlge Outpost" on the web. We are staying there this upcoming week. Call them and see what they have open. There are tons of places and if a lodge is booked up, ask them for other references. I would think that they would know and be willing to share info.<P>Yep, LOTW is the place to go. Nope, not quite as many fish as a fly-in, but the quality supercedes. Bigger walleyes, bigger pike, and of course the option for muskies (are there any other fish??? grin.gif )<P>Just for point of fact, last year we stayed at Wiley Point lodge. Out of our group, 2 pike were caught just in the bay by the lodge. The first one was 41". The other was just a bit over 40". The 41" fish was caught off some weeds, just a 100 feet from the dock.........<P>Another point of fact. We were walleye fishing a reef of 20 to 30 feet. Banging walleyes fast and furious. We were on them. Lots of fish.........about 1 every 5 minutes. Well, my buddy gets a bite, and sets the hook. Normal hook set and fish weight at the end of the line. Within 1 second of the hook set, the line gets VERY HEAVY. Long story short.........After several minutes of battling this heavy fish off the bottom of the reef, it finaly surfaces. It is a 50+" musky. The net wasn't big enough to boat it. After several more minutes, it surfaces again, and spits out a 14" walleye. My buddy caught the walleye and the musky inhaled the walleye immediately. That musky was on the surface 3 times by the boat (to green to hand grab) and its mouth was completely shut. We never had a clue that the walleye was in there, until she spit it out......<P>Heard about it and seen it on TV. But I never seen this live. It was cool!!!!<P>By the way, last year a buddy in another boat in our party boated a 55" musky. All in all, out of 6 guys we boated about 30 muskies last year on our trip!!!<P>------------------<BR>Let 'em go so they can grow!!!

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
