Heading up to LOTW May 31st.

4 posts in this topic

This will be my first time fishing LOTW. We will be staying at Long Point Resort. I have read on this forum that some of you guys and gals use frozen shiners with a jig. Is that the way we should try or do you have any other ideas to help me out?

Thanks

Jig and a Shiner is always a good bet early in the season. By the end of May lots of techniques can work really well though, as well as all the standard bait types. Jigs, cranks, rigs and spinners should all be able to catch em at that time so bring the whole tackle bag and have yourself crawlers, leeches and a selection of minnows!!!

Well, that narrows it down to about everything.jk. Thanks for the advice. We usually go to Canada but this year we thought we would try something new. I totaled my boat last year in Canada (hard water up there). We mostly used jig and minnow there but never frozen minnows. Is there good fishing close to Long Point?

Yepper the LP area has some darn good spots for you to fish. Rock piles and sand/rubble shoreline. You should have no problemo catching fish as long as the weather/wind cooperate!

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.

      I've never used boards, what are the best boards to use with braid? I'll be using them on Superior and for eyes inland... I've heard the offshore ones need their clips upgraded to use with braid.

      Walleye, just make it look like you are fishing for crappies.

      Yup had my favorite sucker fishing spot get posted a couple years back, because of slobs...I'll never understand it.

      Trout! Although, I don't think there are too many (if any, at all?) trout streams in the Ely area.
