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,

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
