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!

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!

      MN DNR is the most authoritative resource even though it may take a little getting used to. You can also study the contours on this website to identify humps and holes.   Minnesota Fishing Contours

      Looking for a freeze up on Friday.  Temps will have been favorable for over a week and then the wind lets up.

      I am not that talented to carve and paint like that. But I love wooden duck decoys.
