Just talked to Archie. 15 inches of ice and shacks are out. Still, be careful out there.

Anyone know if there are any shacks out at Pine Pt yet or not? And how much ice there is off the point? 

Thanks

I was out to Pine Point on Wednesday. One guy brought out his shack that day. He was the first guy to position his shack.

Ice was good and solid about 12-14 inches thick. There was a few trucks and ice tents on the ice as the weather was cold and windy out of the NE. Only a couple inches of snow on the ice.

Fishing was slow. The Marcum showed fish but they weren't interested in jigs. The still lines were the only ones that worked for us that day.

was out at Pine Point today, $10 per person... Fishing was slow for us.  Ice was solid at 14-16" thick, took an ATV and SxS out, didnt see any trucks out.   

 

Good luck

 


** People often ask me why I like hunting and fishing so much... I tell them that those are the only places where my mind doesn't think.... You should really try it sometime! **

Was out Sat setting up the shack. 4 holes iced 3 walters and a ling.

 

The holes were freezing fast as it was pretty windy.

 

Had my flasher on one of the holes and watched a fish watch my jig and sucker for about 2 hours before it finally hit.

 

It would follow my jig up about 2 ft and then swim back to the bottom... could not force a bite.

 

This warm front will probably get them feeding again

Can anyone provide me with coordinates or "locations" of the lake access?  Never been, want to go out Saturday, but have no idea where to access the lake!

 

Thank you

Fishing was much better today 25 in total between two guys.set lines were key at first light and later in day jigging raps seemed to work better. flasher In hole with setlines and the fish would watch it for like what seemed forever before hitting... if they did.

Made another trip to the lake on Sunday with a group of buddies. Lake is in great shape, mostly trucks and quads and side by sides out there. Seemed like moving day as many huts were making their way out. We caught many fish and lost a lot of fish at the hole. Every year I see the same fishing reports. Fishing was slow, not many fish. Don’t fish the crowds, find different spots. Fish uncharted waters. Believe me your success rates will increase dramatically. I am looking forward to testing out some new water soon.

Went out on the 23rd.

 

Drove on from Sawmill Bay and went about half way to Sand Point and went to a couple islands on the east shore.

 

Ice was solid and snow was next to nothing.  You could drive anywhere.  The least amount of ice we drilled through was still more than 18".

 

Had chances to land a few more fish than we did, but no matter how we hooked the minnows we didn't get the hookups we needed.


Since we can not call female anglers "fisherman" We should just call 'em hookers.....

The weather finally made it possible for the team to make an appearance today on Lac. The fresh snow only meant milder temps. We drove out today with the truck and headed down the lake. After crossing the ice ridge at sand point, we were all surprised at the road block down the lake. I took a pic but it doesn’t do it justice. The lake at what people call the old derby site is home to I would say 50-75 shacks. What I find interesting is that people stop there because they see all the shacks and probably figure this is where the fish are. Oh well, they’ll never experience great fishing while fishing in crowds. We decided to head down to Hash brown island and put a shift in. First fish was iced within 5 minutes and the rest of the day just flew by while putting on a show with all the beautiful big fish caught and released. Biggest I believe was 27 and a couple 25’s and 2-24’s and 4 that were 20-23. We also released quite a few under 13. Nothing beats the laughs, the food and catching fish. Our team will be moving to next spot on our next trip and the talk at lunch was trying a new spot. Sounds good to me. Here are some picks of today’s adventure. No fish were harmed today as all fish were kept in the water before the pictures. Sausages and potatoes were on the menu today, plus salami, capicolo cheese bread. Our barista served a nice espresso coffee after lunch ( Thanks Roccu). The only thing missing is a cameraman to capture the laughs and good times we have when we get out.
