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,

      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!
