How was this weekend?

Recommended Posts


We're heading up this Thursday for a long weekend. Any recommendations on where to go? We're staying at Long Point, but maybe we should head towards 4 mile? Thoughts/recommendations?

Carpenter, 2 of us fished out of Long Point Friday and Saturday. Did well. Brought home a limit of walleye/sauger mix. Caught plenty to throw back (too small). We fished in 28ft on Friday and it was pretty good. Marked fish all day, but had some trouble getting them to bite. Kept 10 walleye/sauger mix. Saturday moved out to 32ft and did a lot better. Couldn't keep two lines down the first couple of hours in the morning. Got our six fish we needed for the limit in no time. Kept fishing to see if we could hook a big one. No luck there. Did get one 20". A ton of saugers that we threw back. Many that we could have kept had we not had the limit already. Morning and evening seemed to be best time for catching fish. Fun weekend. Weather was nice for early January.

No driving out as of last weekend at Long. Had to take the ATV. 16 inches of ice but there were lots of cracks and heaves around LP. Not sure if they will open it up to full size vehicles by this weekend or not? Cold weather coming up this week should help a bit. I would call to be sure.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.
