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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
