Angle Report 1/24 - 1/28


Recommended Posts

The fishing on the Canadian side has been exellent this week for both crappies and walleyes. The crappies have been mainly an afternoon bite between 1-4pm and the walleyes have been conisistent most of the day, but falling off towards late afternoon.

Ain't it the truth Ron . . .

My wife & I just returned from there. We stayed at Northwest Angle Resort - new owners there and what great hospitality. We limited out on the eyes (Friday 1/27) by 11:30 and spent the rest of the day catching and releasing. We caught about 35 total for the day. The next day was slower for us but others around us did well. RC Carlson does a fantastic Job up there and it was THE BEST ice fishing trip I've experienced. smile.gif

Those were some nice crappies. I'd like to see them as well. Can you please put them back up?

We are going to Flag Island this weekend. Can we drive to the Island from the Angle with a two wheeled drive minivan?

JZ, I occasionally help out the guides out of Flag Island and they are the ones that put us on the crappies. I'll try posting the pics again. More are available on Flag Islands Winter Fishing page.

Raj, the road to the resort is pretty well maintained - you shouldn't have any problems with a 2WD vehicle.

      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?
