Bay Point

20 posts in this topic

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.

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

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.
