NW Angle report ?

Recommended Posts

Rodric Christensen

We have a group heading up to the NW Angle on sleds tomorrow. We will be staying on Oak Island & fishing for a couple of days. We were wondering if anyone has any recent fishing reports from up there. We keep hearing all the slow reports from the south end, and were hoping things were a little better up that way.

Where are you staying?

I have got a couple emails from friends, and the fishing has been pretty decent.

You should be in the ball park, then.

Are you fishing in portables?

We are bringing the gals along and doing a couples trip, so will just fish out of the rental shacks on this one.

33 inch Walleye----- WOW ! Will check their web site from time to time to see that one.

Was up in the Angle for about 3 days over New Years, the fishing is getting really good up there around Oak, lots of nicer fish being caught. I started off the New Years right with a 28 1/4 walleye on New Years morning! A friend of mine caught a 29 1/2 later that afternoon as well. The gang at Oak will take good care of you. You will have a great time for sure! Good Luck

Where do you launch your sleds on the south? How long of a ride is it up there?

Thanks,

Normally a good place to unload and take off from is the public access boat ramp by Wheelers point but as of lately they have not been keeping it very cleared of snow so I'm not sure if that's still possible. The ride north normally runs about and hour and a half give or take depending on how you ride. It's approx, 40 miles from Wheelers point to Oak Island.

Ya, I've been up that way about 3 times already. Spent 4 days up there over New Years! Good time and great fishing up there right now. Finally found some nice fish! The first fish of the year was a 28 1/4 on New Years morning, what a way to start out! Definitly going to be hard to get out there. I have a couple suggestions for ya on your placement,I'll send ya an e-mail! wink

We are heading up to Flag March 10-13 on our sleds. We fish up there every June, this will be my first ice trip. Any suggested areas that might produce this time of year? I'm sure Dan will have a pretty good idea of where they are. This is torture reading all these reports and I am stuck on land.

I would spend about 20 minutes with Dan and he'll get you pointed in the right direction. There's not too many people up there that know the Angle and the fishing hot spots like Dan does! Good Luck

We just got back from our trip to Oak and had a great time. We had good fishing and the trail was in great shape. They have been grooming and there is certainly plenty of snow. We fished 2 people per house and averaged 40-50 fish per house per day. A lot of nice quality eyes in that 15-17" range and 4 in the 22-24" range. We rode the sleds to the rental shacks so the gals could come and go as they pleased. We rode back into the lodge for lunch and refreshments each day etc., so we didn't even hit the fishing as hard as we do some trips. Those numbers could have been higher if we would have, but everyone had a blast and we plan on doing it again sometime.

      I have heard much of the same from friends that have been in there recently. They say the lake trout fishing is the best it has been in a long time and once everyone gets their trout the walleye fishing is awesome too! Great to hear!

      Fishing Vermilion has been slow for me. I have a couple friends here, one of whom grew up with a cabin on Trout, before the BWCA, that we visited as youngsters. We fish it every year looking for walleye but usually only catch bass. Today, in the rain, I had the absolute best walleye fishing ever. I have caught a 28” on Vermilion, but today caught my (larger) limit including 27”, 26”, a couple 24”s,etc. Beautiful fish- dark bronze with red/gold fins, The other guys did well, too. We were throwing back 15” fish. Great day. I sound like I’m bragging and maybe am, but Trout is back as a walleye lake. Leeches today, slooow drift with a Lundy rig, 14-20’ off points.  I’m 68. Best walleye fishing of my life- so far. Only regret is the red lab had to stay home. Boat is too small. RLG

      We have pretty good bass fishin’ in MN.  19 is a good one. 😎

      Anyone get out this weekend and care to share how fishing was? Will be heading Up tomorrow after work for a week at the lake.

      The service up there is very spotty at best. I have AT&T and have a place in Sand Bay. At the cabin there is hardly any service and what there is usually comes from Canada. That being said a mile down the road it’s 4 bars of LTE. I can’t say exactly how service is at Island View but when we fish in Black Bay right around the corner there’s pretty good service. About as good as it gets on the lake. The farther East you go the worse it gets and fast.

      Someday I'll get a big one. 😆 I did pull a 19" Largemouth out of Weaver lake last year. The largest bass I've ever caught.

      Earliest memory for me was age 3 on the bank of the Miss with a cane pole.  Been through many cycles of “evolution”, if you will, including fishing tournament circuits.  That’s well behind me now since I fish to just enjoy it for what it is and where it takes me.  I’m drawn to water.   My most recent cycle has me chasing muskies a bit like @gimruis  They’re some freaky fish.  I just spent a week chasing them in Canada and witnessed some memorable encounters that made my hands shake and knees knock without even catching the fish that I saw!     Aside from the fish, there’s the deer that swim across the lake, the sow bear and cubs that huff/wheeze when you get too close and the loons that swim around the boat while you’re casting or make their chilling calls to their mates when they’re only 50 feet away.  Good long days on the water working in synch with a good partner, short but restful nights of sleep, and occasionally forgetting what day it is.   It’s a game that wakes up my senses and makes me feel whole.

      If nothing else, it’s a great excuse to get out of the house and go for an adventure! Bought what looks to be a very comprehensive book on the subject, quite a bit more to identification than I imagined. Nothing wrong with Spam😀

      We will be on Rainy Lake in the Island View area in a few weeks, coming up from Missouri. I have an iPhone and iPad with AT&T 4G cellular data and calling. How disappointed am I going to be in reception and especially the ability to use my Navionics charts up there?  Suggestions?  TIA
