How's the fishing?

7 posts in this topic

We will be going out north of Williams on Thursday, Long Point area I think. I am just tagging along with some others who have been there before.

I see there is plenty of information on what to do on the big pond, I am just curious how the fishing has been?

We we're up last weekend and fishing was great!! Fished out of Zipple Bay, in 31'ft. water. 5 people went up, and we filled out, and had a fish fry to boot!! Pink and gold, and white and gold, they worked the best!! Good luck, Bumble

I have the same report out of Zipple too. Fished in shallower water, 25-27 ft of water and produced simular results.

Gold pimple, Gem N Eye (gold and white glow), & anything glowing during dawn & dusk had fair results, but the good ol' plain gold or silver hook out fished everything.

Vexilar was no help as everythign seems to be very skidish of jigging, and suspended fish wanted nothing to do with any rig.

Fished out from Pine Island in 28' last weekend and found that if we didn't jig, we didn't catch fish. We caught 30 fish Sunday and Monday, 2/3 came on a Rainbow Trout buckshot (the smallest size available). All the fish responded well to jigging. We only caught a handful on deadsticks, half on gold and half on glow red.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
