North end ramps

12 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has put in lately on the north end. I was thinking about heading out Thursday night and putting in at Fishers. I know that it is ususally a little shallow in the way out but I have never had a problem. This is the first voyage up to the pond this fall in the new boat laugh.gif and I would rather not have any issues getting onto the water. Any information would be great. I am thinking about trying the sand weedline and then see where the night takes me.

thanks

When I went last time I put in at fishers. It's a little shallow heading out but the launch itself is still in great shape. You will be fine. You should pull some cranks where we did last fall in that area and pounded them! Im going to try and get out saturday but I do have to work in the morning mad.gif.

That was going to be my first stop and then maybe try the North East side from there. I will give you a report when I get back.

i went out on Saturday and tried the Malmo access, i had my truck 15 feet in the water and still couldnt get boat off trailer, so i went to Wealthwood and it was OK, still hit bottom for about 100 yards till the drop off, so all in all the accesses are no good, went down to Myr Mar and had lunch and there launch looked good, but im sure they charge a nominal fee, anyway good luck up there

      5/29/17 Fishing report from Flag Island Resort NW Angle, Lake of the Woods   Happy Memorial Day!   The past week has brought some variation in weather including sunshine, wind and rain. Overall fishing has been good.  The bug hatches have started with the fish flies having some impact on the fishing but, anglers are still consistently getting limits.   On the Minnesota side, the walleye, sauger, pike and perch bite continues. The magic depths have been between 7-13 feet in the mud and 16-26 feet on rocks. The Flag Island Flats are starting to heat up. Other hot locations include points and near shore reefs. Just the same as last week all tactics have had their day. Jigging, raps and spinners have all been producing once you find what is working. The water temp is around 58 degrees.   Over in Ontario anglers are still catching a nice mixed bag of walleye, sauger, crappie, perch, pike and smallmouth bass. The crappies are moving shallower getting ready to spawn. Some depths according to their species are as follows; Smallmouth bass 2-8 feet, Walleyes 20-24 feet and Sauger 26-30 feet. Points, reefs, humps, areas with current, rock piles and inside turns have all worked when looking for locations. A jig or spinner with a minnow or crawler has worked best. The hot colors have been gold, pink and orange.   Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides, Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.
