Taking the wife fishing

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

My wonderful wife suggested we go to my cousins rustic cabin along birch beach near long point. Our first getaway since 1999. She even wants to go fishing part of the time. Any advice on where we can go for a good steady bite to have fun. I have fished in winter there but never open water. Anything close to shore around long point, birch beach or arneson's? I want her to have a great time so SHE asks me to go fishing more often grin.gif We will be there Aug 17th -20th. Any help on location, presentation etc would be appreciated!

Thanks for the help!

Right now there is a great trolling bite going on out in the deep water. Right out in front of where you are staying might not be a bad place to start. Working your way towards Long Point and the reefs in that area would be an option as well. If she's not into that. Jigging on top or around any reef should produce some action for you. Weather will play a role in what types of fishing you can do. Good Luck!

Anybody getting any fish hook and lining out on 12 mile or anywhere out by Arnesen's reef or Gull Rock reef?

Was out Monday and didn't do much. Five fish in the boat, lost three. Lots of algae everywhere. Trolled cranks around Arnesons, Pedros and 16 mile. Marked lots of fish in areas, but not alot of action. Weather in the area last weekend may have had an impact, but that is my only excuse.

later,

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
