Bay Point

Recommended Posts

bronzeback01

Dead...dead...dead. Got my shack out there this weekend, been fishing twice. One bite between the two outings, no fish. The bay was hot this time last year, don't know what's going on?

Think the cold front has shut 'em down completely. Think I might move a little bit and see what happens, bust out my secret weapon...see what happens.

If anyone else has had any luck let me know cuz I'm almost outa tricks.

fish or die

I was talking to a friend about bay point today and he was down there yesterday and not one bite he had a camera and he said all he seen was shad and sheephead. I think it's disappointing i was really hoping for some northern action like a few years ago but oh well. good luck and merry christmas to everyone

It is a little disapointing. I was getting into quite a few walleye and nice crappie late this fall at bay point, but it is dead right now. I'll be out there tomorrow. I hope this warm front might get 'em goin.

I'll have a report tomorrow night.

BronzeBack how did you end up doing on the 31st. I haven't been to baypoint since i last talked to you. I saw a van on the ice near the docks, i thought for sure it was going to be a bobbermobile.

Made it out for a little bit on Sunday. Not much goin on. Caught one nice gill and that was about it. Not seeing much around the docks or C-wall on the flasher, just a few small ones, could've even been big shad. The fish I have caught have all been unusually aggressive, just hammering the bait. I think they're hungry they're just not there.

However, I went out as close as I could get to the mouth of the bay and open water and found a ton of bait fish that were soon folowed by some decent sized fish that looked like they could've been crappie, also found some that could've been eyes.but these bigger fish were movin too fast to get much of a shot at. Most of the fish were layin right in the mud, I don't think I would've been able to see them without the colorline on my lowrance because the flasher wasn't showing me anything.

Hope to get out again soon. Will have a report.

I know where it's at now. I've been there in the boat I just never knew it had a name.

Sauger huh, any idea what's working? I might have to give it a try.

BB, FYI when you go out from the boat landing do NOT cut over to the right immediately. Go out a little way and then hook left. I would not suggest driving right out to the point either. If you have any questions shoot me an email. hype797@hotmail.com

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

        Nice fish , great pics ,, what times of the day were best for you ?

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?
    • Billy G
      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore. 
    • sartellangler05
      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
