Heading up to LOTW May 31st.

Recommended Posts

Fishing_Novice

This will be my first time fishing LOTW. We will be staying at Long Point Resort. I have read on this forum that some of you guys and gals use frozen shiners with a jig. Is that the way we should try or do you have any other ideas to help me out?

Thanks

Jig and a Shiner is always a good bet early in the season. By the end of May lots of techniques can work really well though, as well as all the standard bait types. Jigs, cranks, rigs and spinners should all be able to catch em at that time so bring the whole tackle bag and have yourself crawlers, leeches and a selection of minnows!!!

Well, that narrows it down to about everything.jk. Thanks for the advice. We usually go to Canada but this year we thought we would try something new. I totaled my boat last year in Canada (hard water up there). We mostly used jig and minnow there but never frozen minnows. Is there good fishing close to Long Point?

Yepper the LP area has some darn good spots for you to fish. Rock piles and sand/rubble shoreline. You should have no problemo catching fish as long as the weather/wind cooperate!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
