NW Angle Advise

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

My fiance and I are planning a trip to the Angle for our honeymoon. Were planning on camping at Youngs Bay and doing some fishing.....any advice for fishing the 2nd week in July? Ive never fished the angle before. We are mainly looking for walleyes and pike. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! THANKS!

Great place to go for a honeymoon. Hang on to that gal!

I was there a few weeks ago, but I haven't been there at that time. My first choice at that time would be to fish the mid lake humps. There are several reefs south of there that should hold some large eyes. Hopefully shomeone just coming back from there can post a report to help you out.

Good Luck!

Figure out how to get to the Bridges island area. Lots of underwter structure - lots of fish - some pretty big in mid-summer. The hotter the weather, the better the fishing. Just about any underwater hump that tops off at 20' or so should hold fish.

I agree with Heartman. The first place I would start would be the reefs near Bridges Island. Bridges will be right off the west side of Big Island. Maybe 15+ miles south of Youngs Bay?? You'll need a decent size boat and keep your eye on the weather, as it can change fast. Have fun!

Good choice, my opinion, fish the canada side, only a half dozen miles or so to fabulous fishing, fish mid lake reefs with jigs and minnows, very rocky and snaggy, very full of fish. You can always get away from the wind! Know the rules in canada! Also if you pull up to a reef with even one boat on it go to another, there are many many of them. You will find out why I say this if you try to share a reef with a canadian.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
