Is anyone fishing Long Point this weekend?

3 posts in this topic

I have my sleeper on the lakeside of the pressure ridge by twin island an was wondering, if I need help getting it over to the shoreline side, if anyone might be available to help. I dont know what to expect by the weekend an want to have bases covered. I know kelly an boo are there help but I like to have a backup plan for the backup plan for the backup plan. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Boar

boar; The only thing I saw at twin islands from Long Point today was snowmobiles, I don't know if there is a bridge over the breaker or not. By the way fishing at Twin Islands was hot over the weekend. Was told only snowmobiles were over there. Best to call the resort as things change quite rapidly in this warm weather. Good luck getting your house off.

Thanks for the info KF, I was able to round up some help last night, three guys an some big planks, so between them an an early morning retreval mission while it's still firm I should be ok. Thanks Boar

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
