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

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. Let me know if there's another search prior to Saturdays event.
    • IceHawk
      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.

         Couple from prospecting some virgin ice, not a hole in site. Mission accomplished!         .....

      Just got off the ice and there were several cars driving around.  We ended up with 1-2 inches. We found a few willing cats today.   Enough to get a head start for the fish fry.  Keep posted as we did not find much for cats in the methhole area.

      sounds great. I hope everyone had fun great job Hoey red lake was slpw Saturday kept 2  
    • AlwaysFishing23
      I agree. With ice that only leaves foot or two max of water fish are either extremely stressed or it already winter killed. Sounds like a real nice spring gill lake though. Defiantly would try it again this winter and as other stated drill lots of holes. Good Luck!
    • eyeguy 54
      popped out for a couple hours this afternoon. first fish was this nice gill. last fish was a bit smaller. brought a nice northern home to fry up.  bite was a lot slower today than what it has been. my wiggle must have been off a bit. LOL 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Considering the lake is only 5 ft deep, the fish are probably stressed out. Once things start melting, and oxygen starts pouring back in, the fish should really turn on. It’s possible the lake may have winter killed though.
