Advice for LOW newcomer

Recommended Posts

GregS

A group of us will be fishing LOW for the first time late June/early July. We will be fishing out of the Angle Inlet area. What are the water temp. and visibility like at that time of year? What techniques will be working at that time of year for walleye, crappie, smallmouth, northern, muskie? This will also be my first time fishing for muskie and northern. What # test line should I use? what about steel leaders? Any advice will be appreciated.<BR>Thanks.<BR>Greg <P>

GregS,<BR>You sure have a lot of fishin' to get done. Most trips I've been on, we have only targeted one species. You may want to consider a shorter list. Less stuff to bring too.<BR>You'll have a good time, guaranteed!

Walleyes this time of year at the Angle will be starting to pick up good out on the reefs. You can still find some in the sand bays, and rubble shorlines as well.<P>Northerns, and Muskie, you will want to primarily check out sand bays. West and South facing sand bays will be better as the sun gets to them the most, and will have the best cabbage growth. You want a steel leader for sure fishing these. I'd recommend 80-100lb line if you are using the super lines. Check out rock points that extend into the lake, Saddle weedbeds as well. It wouldn't hurt to check out a few of the reefs either, but these tend to heat up a little later.<P>Smallies will be starting to move deeper, but a few can still be picked of on rubble shorelines, points, and reefs. Muskies and Smallies tend to share the same turf.<P>I'm afraid crappies would be like looking for a needle in a haystack this time of year though, you might want to forget that one.<P>Have fun!<P>Oh, water clarity will be good this time of year, although it is tanic and fairly dark water. There won't be any algae bloom at this time. Water temps I would guess would vary somewhere around the 70 degree range.<P><p>[This message has been edited by widetrack (edited 03-09-2004).]

      Made a few modifications to my pontoon.   I thought it would interesting to summer ice fish in the same spots I catch all of my winter walleyes.   Don

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.
