Well, I was up there on Friday, was told it was slow, BUT was getting better for perch from the resort guy. So we paid our ten dollars to drive out. We've fished Pine Point many many times, but this was the worst one. We couldn't do anything right that day. Yikes. Just a couple 4 inch perch and one slimer. I'm sure some people we getting some, but we couldn't dial them in. We were out to Goose Island and back... Didn't help that my auger was fussy! Good Luck.

I was out off Pine this weekend and also struggled, this year I have been doing better on the humps in walker, might have to stay over there. Wanted to get into a mess of perch with the kids but never happened. One day we saw a ton of fish and they were all so small and couldn't get them to bite, the next it was didn't see many but they were more agressive but still no jumbos. I think we got two that were maybe 9 inches.

Tried waxies, minnow heads and fatheads, maybe needed to go deeper, i think the most we were was 15 fow.

tons of ice which was nice to see, most spots we saw were in the 18inch range, suprised more people were not driving...

So both of you guys (tweeder / Laketahoe) were able to drive out to the goose island areas? I am going to be in that area this saturday and hope I will be able to drive my 1/2ton out onto the ice.

Lots of other people out in that area fishing or are most people fishing Walker bay? If fishing is slow already, Im sure this latest cold streak isn't going to help anything. What time of day did you stay out till, after dark??

Any one try Stoney Point?

Yes, you can drive out. There is a breaker from goose island to just about the pine point shoreline. 18inches of good ice. I would guess there was 30 to 40 permanents out there... covering the whole area. plenty of room for more wink Good Luck.

Norm,

the weekend i was up there, there was a lot of traffice on the goose island side of pine since you can drive on at the resort there. There was some pretty bad ice heaves on the shore making it hard to get out on some of the other spots.

clearly ice is never safe but after this week and what was already there, you should feel pretty good about driving and moving around with the portable. Keep moving you'll find them. worst comes to worst, find a hump in walker bay, be set up by 4:30 and have fun catching the small walleyes, good eaters but nothing over 18 for me yet in my 3 trips over there (don't drive through the narrows to get there)

APC, do you get up to pine much, we should trade war stories if you do.

Did well on Jumbo's in the Pine Point area Saturday. Fished about 10am-6pm and ended up with 18 over 10" with two of those being nice fat 12" fish. Had one 26" slimer and only one nice 18" walleye. lots of smaller perch to sort through probably threw back 40+ perch.

APC - Thanks for pointing us in the right direction grin

How's the ice around pine point during the latter portion of this week? Still in good shape?

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
    • Wanderer
      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?
