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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
