Northwest Angle

Recommended Posts

Guest

For the last 7 years i have been fishing the south shore ice fishing. Next winter 4 of us are talking about taking an ice fishing trip up to the Northwest Angle. I was wondering how these 3 resorts are? <P>Angle Outpost Resort, Jake's NW Angle, and Northwest Angle Resort.

Don't know much about the resorts you have listed. We have been going to Walsh's Baystore Camp on Oak Island for the last 6 years. The Walsh's will treat you great. We have fished at other resorts in the angle and feel we get the best service at Walsh's. Good luck.

Gissert,<P>We will be heading up to LOW for the first time late June/ early July and will be staying in the northwest angle area. Have you fished that area at that time of year? Any advice for a first timer? Any patterns you like for walleye? smallmouth? Thanks.<P>------------------<BR>

We have been going out of NW Angle Resort for many years, and have been very happy. RC Carlson runs the fish houses out of there, and has always busted his hump to put us on fish.<P>I have not been to Frank Walsh's joint yet, but he is highly reccommended by many. Frank's place is definately closer to the fishing if you do not have quads or sleds.

Greg -<P>Sorry, I am a hard water fan of the Angle. The only open water experience I have on LOW is in the Sunset Channel.<P>Look up Frank Walsh at the Bay Store and he can set you straight. RC Carlson is another guide I would look to for information.

Profisher-<P>I recommend the Bay Store Camp. They are a relatively small operation and Frank is "the man". He will not [PoorWordUsage] you and will do his darndest to put you on fish. Hint: If you have all your own gear and are mobile, be prepared to fish the Canadian side and C&R a lot of nice fish! <P><p>[This message has been edited by Mad Mulcher (edited 03-23-2004).]

I have stayed at Protheros. Great people, nice Cabins and its really cheap, the people keep coming back so they don't need to do any advertising. I am going up for Memorial weekend am I going to have any luck?

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.
    • gimruis
      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      Or catching Muskrats with Bullheads in the winter.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
