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!

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
