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.
