Ok Sledhead, How did you do? I'm heading out with the "old guys" Jan. 8th at Long Point. You aren't the only one who fishes there. Both of the "old guys" were out at Long Point on the 27th along with the family on their annual xmas trip and didn't do well. So what was working for you?

Orchdock,

I was up on the 30th and took home a limit. It was nasty weather and terrible drive home on friday! I am heading back up early friday morning (7th) and staying till at the resort till sunday. I have a 2001 ford crew cab with camo on the bottom. Stop and say HI. I should be able to give you a report from the fishing on frday.

Last weekend was a tough fish out there but just like I have found out before if you stick to it you will get your fish. My 11year old found a weird glow blue lure looked like a mud puppy but it was hot! Other than that green and glow glowdevil was my best. Hope to see ya up there.

Thanks for the report sledhead. Over the years long point has been pretty consistent. I'll be looking for you Sat morning. If I don't find you, you can look for the house with all of the eelpout outside. I have been trying to target them for the last couple of years. It drives the old guys crazy. Still only get them by chance. One day I'll hit on the right presentation and I'll probably need to call an ambulance to take the old guys to the nearest hospital.

If you want pout the secret is a bright glow red, glow red with a attachable glow stick! I am not kidding! We have a pot in our house for the biggest and it always produces.

Sand Burr

Just a couple questions.

When you use a glow stick for the pout are you putting it on the glow bait somehow?

Also where did you find the glow blue bait that looked like a mud puppy? Do you know who makes it?

Thanks,

PLEV

Plev,

I did some looking and the lure he was using is a Dragon Nymth, Nite lite Blue Glow.Produced by Maynards Tackle. He purchased it at the ice show. The glow sticks have a little rubber piece that you can attach it to the hook. I think they are a northland product.

Things might change a little because the snow has covered the ice and the super glow lures might not work as well?

The all time best pout lure was what we called the Beecon. It basically looked like a red eye but the red eye in the center lit up and blinked! Monster pout!!!!!

Thanks for the info. I'll try a search and see what I can find. We tried the Pout for the first time last year. Someone showed us how to clean them. Then we boiled them and dipped them in melted butter. A couple of the guys really liked them. I thought it was OK but to me nothing beats a Walleye. If I find the lures and try them this year I will post when we get back and let you know how we did.

Thanks again,

PLEV

Got back from Long point Tuesday night. Was to sick to report. Left for the point on sat at ten to 7 in morn and ran 200 miles of solid ice on the road. Crossing the bog was the worst part of it. OOk on to fishin. Sunday not so hot only mustered 3 walleye in my house. Gramps and the uncle got eleven. Monday picked up considerably. We fished in about 26-27 feet of water, managed a limit for everyone to take home and have a good fish dinner on monday night. Yummy fresh walleye. Got three pout. Caught and release 3 nice 24 inchers very fat fish, Most were caught right on the bottom, on techno glow red frosties, orange, yellow and a few on the chartruese buck shot rattle spoon, only got two on gold. The access is open and we drove out the truck on monday, about 17 inches of ice. Were where out to where the road just about ended from kelly plowing right amunst the retals, All good and fun very cold though, ride home better but the bog was still covered in ice. Once you got south of kelliher road were good. Considerable snow fell with about 6 inches while I was there. Will be back in feb for more action I hope. Look for me then, I seem to have the only polar sport with a yellow top out there. Till next time good fishin. cool.gif

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
