Any Long Point reports

Recommended Posts

Haven't seen any reports from Long Point in a while. I assume the ice is pretty good right now. How about the fishing? We hope to head up in the next week or so. Thanks.

I am amazed at the lack of Long Point reports. Maybe it is because the ice has been tentative this year - or maybe less people fishing that area in the winter?? Plan on going up Tuesday morning and would like to know if we can drive on the ice with a pickup or not? Thanks for any information...

Some locals have been up there this year fishing near the crack, fishing has been hit and miss.

Others left today for points beyond the crack, they were taking portables but I don't remember if what they were using for transportation, I'm sure they were not planning on vehicles, probably ATV's.

Sounds like a few people heading to LOW this weekend from what I gather, I'm sure the reports will start rolling in now with this cold weather firming things up some more.

We're off to Buffalo Bay, we'll see how that goes.

We have been fishing Long Point. Fishing has been pretty good. No trucks as of last weekend, there are a few Long Point resort houses, Chris Ford has some sleepers out there some locals with permanent shack and lots and lots and lots of portables. After this cold snap you may see some trucks,

call the resort

I was up last weekend and did well. Fished out of a day house Thursday and Friday 32ft. 3 of us had our limits everyday and threw twice as many back. It was wheelers only, had 16 inches where we were. Good luck!!!

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      Mmmmmmm~~~~ here's one for ya! For years we have been trying to get our fave Mayfly Rafts & Spikes into a booth at The State Fair. Rafts = ~~~  Honey Waffle coated with Dark Chocolate Glaze n Peanut Butter then sprinkled with Frozen Real Maple Syrup dipped Mayflys.  To die for. Spikes  =  ~~~ Deep Fried Triple Thick Cut of F&D Smoked Bacon dipped into Smoked flavored Pancake Batter an dipped in Maple Syrup then rolled in pile of frozen Hickory smoked MayFlys. Both Killer Pak~ons seved on a stick or in a Deep Fried Walleye Belly Fillet. Power good experience that takes you places you never been before'!! : )   Keep on rocken!   T

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.

      6/22/18     West Metro Water temp is in the 70's and sunfish are up on the beds. Look for harder bottom areas inside of or adjacent to softer bottom with weeds. The smaller females will be staging over the weeds--you may see them boiling--and the big bulls will be guarding the nests (beds) on the firmer bottom. Got my son and Dad out to catch a bunch this morning.  Ultralight 7' spinning rods/reels with four pound test Berkley Nanofil works great to cast to these bedding fish from a distance and get a good hook set. We use a 1/16 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig tipped with a 1" to 1.5" soft plastic (minnow, grub, tube, etc.) under a slip float to adjust for beds at different depths. Usually you will be targeting 2-8 feet of water, depending on water clarity. Take care not to keep everything you catch. It is fine to keep a fresh meal once in a while--sunfish is awfully tasty--but put plenty of fish, including the biggest bulls, back. Needed to keep the natural cycle of reproduction going. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Fished the lake this morning ,,, water temps were 72-74 and the flys were hatching ,,, unhooking the walleyes they were coughing up fly larvae,,, Need to power wash the boat now ,,, No keepers today but lots of overs and 2 unders mixed in with some pike and sunnies on flicker minnows ,,, Go figure

      Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was beginning to think I lost my touch. Took a beating this winter, but hopefully it will come back again. Also would like to see some more restrictions on the crappies. Time to start checking the deeper weed beds I guess. I know the water temps have been fluctuating a lot this spring and maybe they skipped the spawn.

      Crappies have been hard for me to pin down on other waters as well.  Seems they are not were they usually are and I wonder if the weird winter to summer transition is to blame.  Time to start looking in other parts of the water column.
