Just looking for the inside line on longpoint. Heading up tomorrow looking for info on how far out the new road to twin island is and if they are fishing that area? Just looking for a report on this area.

Looks like nobody is fishing at LP. You should probably stay home and take care of your new baby smile

We were up to Long Point Mon, Tues., & Wed. I think the road is open all the way to Twin Islands. Each day we were there the fishing got better. The resort has live shiners. The roads are in excellent condition, very wide and plenty of places plowed out to set your house.

Thanks K.F. Maybe with some weather consistancy the bit will keep getting better. As for cokeman he is just bitter that he has to drive so far to fish with me and that he works to much.

The farther west was better for us. The fishing was great in the morning and it slowed down in the afternoon. We ended up with 16 nice fish. we maybe caught around 40 overall!

Groslie17,

That picture you texted my wife of that 23" you caught a few weeks ago turned out nice. Now you are over at Long Point must mean the Honey spot by my house must have died out!

      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.

Hopefully everyone caught a few fish and it's nice to stumble across some fun patterns...d Metro Area MN Fishing Reports for June 16 - VIDEO - CLICK HERE   Enjoy!

      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!!!!!!

      Similar to eyeguy, I fished when I was young with my parents. At some points it was about trying to catch big fish for me, now days it's for relaxing and teaching kids to fish.
