Worth the Drive??

Going to the Angle in march. Have been reading the lake is stirred up and fishing is slow at best. Is this an overly pessimistic review or is it right on? If it is stirred up, has there been a noticable settling? I plan on still making the 13 hr trip, as we still have fun. Just good to have an Idea what one is in for. I realize one week does not predict the next.

Thanks, Frozen

I was there Tuesday, and they were saying the Angle is crystal clear. Only the south end is murky.

I saw a report today from Baudette chamber and also a local sports paper that the bite at the Angle has been pretty good on the south side of Oak Island in 24-26' of water. Both wallies and saugs seem to be going. Good luck and hold onto your rod. Bill

The angle and north has been fine. Good water, ok ice, and fishing has been good. Within a 20 minute snowmobile ride from the angle you can be into some great walleye and crappie action. Weather and water conditions haven't affected much.

Fishing at the Angle has been solid on both the US and Canadian side. I talked to the guides at Flag Island Resort and they got into the crappies this past week as well as the usual walleyes. The water never got too stirred up like it did on the south end.

Just got back from there. The fishing was fantastic and the hospitality the same. smile.gif The water had its usual brown tint, but was better then the south end.

Good luck and . . .

We were up to the Northwest Angle in early January. The fishing was great. Over two days between 8 people we caught between 250 and 300 fish. Mostly Walleye with a few Saugers and a couple perch and tulibee

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
