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?

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,

Tully

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.

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.

      would like to see a protected slot on bluegills, 10 to 12 inches go back. only one over 12 inches.

      Stands to reason that clogging up the dock at a public access would irritate people.  Most of those docks aren't very big.  That problem didn't occur to me.

      PSU,   Fished the evenings last Th, Fr and Saturday.  The smaller side bays in Frazier with slip bobbers and leeches in about 8 ft of water at dusk. Thursday night my son and I caught 7 eaters.   Friday night the good news was that three of us boated about 30 walleyes.  Bad news was that only 6 were eaters.   All very small but they were really feeding in the warm shallower waters. Saturday night was very slow.  Just a few small ones.  I haven't been out the last three days. I've seen a few mayflys in Frazier Bay but no major hatching yet.

      I can't help you with access, but I have a friend that regularly fishes stump and sagatagan--apparently the lakes are infested with norts and that's what he targets.  Lots of 2-5 pounders. (I suspect if you're targeting bass you'll end up catching mostly norts.)

      It appears that most of the bass are off their beds on the deep clear lakes near Hackensack/Longville. I did see 1 smallie guarding the nest still. The winds have the minnows piled up on the NE corner and I'm sure the walleyes were there, but I struck out on my first lake (1 smallmouth). Only fished for eyes for a little over an hour in the morning darkness. As the sun was rising, I switched lakes and was excited when a decent smallmouth smoked my small wake bait as soon as it hit the water on my first cast on lake number 2. Ended up catching over a dozen around shallow rocks and deep cabbage before it was time to go to work. Didn't get much sleep last night, but it was well worth it!!

      Any recent fishing reports for Frazer/Smarts Bay area. Didn't fish much last weekend (maybe four hours), but it was REALLY slow for me. First time I haven't keep a keeper in quite some time. Depths, technique and bait choice would be welcomed!

      Fins - same for me yesterday.  Fished three hours in the evening last night.  Pretty big wind still at 7pm.  Caught 5 walleye (all dinks) and a northern.  I went out for two hours this morning, mainly graphing.  Stopped near Cranberry Island and caught one 15 inch for dinner.  Will go out again this evening for advanced scouting.  Big group coming up over the 4th of July and they are expecting to catch fish.  Maybe i'll have to reset expectations...

      I do not target smallies, but I do run across them when fishing shallow, rocky areas, typically along the shore and back in the small bays.  The ones we have caught were nice and strong, running from 19 to 21 inches.  Good Luck.

      At least a decade ago, I was fishing in Head O Lakes west off Taylors Island when I got a heavy snag in 35ft. I kept pulling up what felt like a log until it appeared at the surface. It was the underwater power line that I think runs out to the island where everyone fishes muskies. I carefully unhooked my jig and let the line fall back into place in the lake.   I'll keep an eye out for your prop!

      I called the Soudan Mine today and was told that you can't leave your boat at the landing in Stuntz Bay. She said that it was "strongly frowned upon" and that she wasn't aware of any way to boat to the mine. Maybe that will be something that happens in the future.
