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.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
