4 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to long point and was wonderin how they have been doing around there. Anybody know how much water is on the ice. We are taking our 2 wheel drive because we dont own a 4 wheel drive. Any tips and advice would be appreciated.

I was there last monday, we had poor fishing but I guess it had been good before that. We were in 35 feet of water. I heard someone in 28 ft. did ok. There was no water on the ice and very little snow. There are a few pressure ridges but should be no problem for you to get to were you want to fish with a two wheel drive vehicle. there were cars out on the lake. Good Luck

child23; We were at LP last Tues. started in 32' nothing, moved into 28' and filled out with walleye, returned several including two 22"ers. Wed. a couple of friends were up and fished 33', kept 6 walleye and filled the rest of the limit with sauger, never know where they may be. Good luck.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
