A Little Help!!

Recommended Posts

Guest

I am taking my wife up for the evening bite tonight. She has never been on the lake and I have only been on it 4 or 5 times. We will be driving up 169. If anyone has any good spots and techniques for the southwest side I would love some help. Help a guy out, if my with has fun and catches a few it will be well worth it. Thank you for any help.

Ranger1,

I fished off of Sherman's point last weekend and had success in 22' of water on the north side of the point. That depth puts you on the break from 19' into 25'. Lighted slip bobber, red hood, leech. You might want to try switching to crawlers if a bug hatch starts. Try switching hook colors. Don't think that what worked yesterday will work today, although it often does.

I have also heard that Indian Point is a good place to start. There has been good success out of Garrison and Wealthwood. Go through all the threads in this forum and many of your questions will be answered.

Don't get married to a depth or a spot. We moved four times within the first hour of fishing last Saturday night until we started getting fish. We fished anywhere from 25' up to 14' and found the fish concentrating at 22'. That could change at any point, on any day.

I'm sure others have some info to share.

I fish on the SW corner 99% of the time. If you wanna launch there, you can try Cove bay public access of Weekends Bar & Grill. If you plan on slip bobbering, there is a great rock by in and around the bouys near the Cove Bay channel. You can't miss it, there are 5 or 6 sets of channel markers coming out of the bay, but you can anchor and slip boober the rocks to the east of the channel toward the point. If you wanna drift, I saw a bunch of boats do great drift from the middle of the bay out toward the channel.

If you stop in at Weekends tell them Chris Graber sent ya, Keith will do all he can to take care of ya!

D-man, I would love to, but I don't have anyone to fish with that has a boat. All my fishing buddies with boats are busy this weekend.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.

      Cliff and Byron are planning a Kids ice fishing day February 12. The event is out of Fortune bay Marina  9-1. The event is for Tower and Nett lake kids. I know Cliff is looking for a few helpers.

      Cuz that’s just me.  🙂  I just like tinkering and seeing what I can get away with - and learn about things.   Just got done with a fine hone stone and got out some small nicks I’m pretty sure I got from cutting dirty ice in ND.  I’ll find out tomorrow how I did.

      Why when Frank does such a great job?

      Like @eyeguy 54 says, Frank has been the go-to guy for members of this site for years.  He does it by mail and is in Saginaw, MN.   It’s interesting that you ask about re-shaping also.  I know Frank has the Nils jig and the drill blades are curved.  I was considering tuning up my own today before they get too dull but am concerned about maintaining the shape of the curve. Since I was a machinist in a former life, I’m still gonna try it.  Then maybe send to Frank. 😀
