Sandpoint

Anyone care to divulge their GO TO lure for Northerns on Sandpoint in mid May? I was planning on throwing spinner baits and inline spinners in the shallow bays since we'll be lucky to have Ice out by May 1st.

Natural Mepps, silver blade, small white twister tail, spinnersizes 3-5. I raised 3 boys on that lake. That's the lure that taught them to cast, play fish, unhook and handle fish etc. Never found anything that worked nearly as well. You've got the pattern figured out. Another thing to try is trolling big Rapala's like tail dancers along and off the rocky points. That works better later in the summer but you'll eventually catch a REALLY big one doing that.

Well, I got som HJ's and a few X-raps. Some spinner Baits and a few inlines. Now I gotta figure out how NOT to go mad waiting for the next 29 days to go by.

Is the ice out yet?

WJ,

Look in the Crane forum a few topics down for "web cam". You'll find links to webcams of Rainy, Crane and Kab. I'm checking them several times a day now. The ice is darker and farther from shore all the time. Won't be long!

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
