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.

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.

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 do it because I enjoy it.  I used to do it more to harvest and eat them, but as I got older I realized that keeping fish has very little to do with it anymore.  So now I pretty much release almost everything.  I also do it for the challenge of it, especially muskie fishing.

      CigarGuy, I couldn't help but notice that the boat you're using appears to have the junk Merc fuel line that has cost boat owners a boat load of money by disintegrating the rubber liner inside and sending it downstream into your filters and carbs. The Merc is the right vintage and the line is the right (wrong) color. If you can find a speck of red or orange printing on it or if it feels soft when you squeeze it, you should cut it into pieces and toss it in the trash. If you are original owner and know 100% that non oxy 91 octane is the only type of gas ever used, maybe it will be fine. I wouldn't risk it though. Check my 'mercury fuel hose causes issues' thread on equipment and expert information forum for pics from this spring.

      Got 4 more slot fish tonight from 8 till 9:30. All between 21" and 26-1/4". had a nice one on within a minute of getting out there, but I was waiting for a boat to pass before I grabbed the net and lost it.  Sorry if it sounds like I'm bragging, I'm not, this uncharted territory for me up here 😀. Like I've said before, this lake has humbled me. This is the best wknd fishing in the 6 years we've been up here... gotta enjoy it while it lasts. Heading back to the rat race tomorrow.

      Why do I fish??!!?? It's simple. Because I NEED TO FISH!!  I mean, what else is there?? Fishing is my church. Fishing is my therapy. Fishing is my home. Fishing is my vacation. Fishing is my best friend. FISHING IS MY LIFE!! C & R IS MY FUTURE! Please let me be fishing in my final moments, or let me fish forever.

      Had a great couple of days in the middle of the lake. Plenty of 15-18”fish and too many little ones to count. Leeches mostly but fish also were active on smaller rainbows later in the day.

      Had some luck fishing walleyes in 10-20 ft in current using jigs tipped with chubs a week ago. Water was pretty cold still...upper 50s on the main lake.

      Growing up in South Dakota I learned to enjoy the fishing I got to do in the Watertown area with great grandpa and the Missouri River and Black Hills fishing with Grandpa. It's a little different than what I see here in Minnesota but the basics are the same. Seems to be more emphasis on fish size than fishery quality or maybe I was just raised different.  Either way it was always about the beauty of nature and learning a valuable skill from 2 knowledgeable individuals. Now I just try to pass those skills on to the next generation and hope they learn how to protect our resources as well as I was taught.

      same here!!! doesn't hurt to have lived close to the horseshoe chain and having a cabin in Itasca county!!!!!!   nuttin better then a meal of fish straight from the lake to the fish cleaning shack to the plate either!!!!!!
