The bay and fish point

Postby goosman » Thu Sep 05, 2013 7:42 pm

How is it up there guys anyone have any reports as far as water levels. last year fish point had a lot of trouble getting any of the zones full of water to even float dekes in for the first week. Also how is water up in wildfowl bay I talked to the guy we rent the cottage from on sand point and he said he hasn't been there since may just curious heading up there in a coupke weeks to get a better idea of whats going on. thanks in advance

I fished sand point in July and water was fine: nothing compared to last year. One HUGE influence on access to the bay is wind direction and strength. If the wind blows hard and from the wrong direction it can drain the bay. I saw large fishing boats going after walleye just outside North Island in Wildfowl bay. We ran out of two marinas and had no problem either time.

Went to fish point last weekend and the 20s and 1 2 3 have very bad corn if any at all. They put blinds in the front row of the 20s so they have 4 blinds in the front rows..not sure how that will turn out this year..But I cant believe how horrible the corn is this year its the worst I've seen it in all the years I been hunting out there.. :fingerhead:

The 20's You can see all 4 blinds and NO cover at all. just standing out in the open. looks like they harvested all the good tall corn and left some scrap corn behind the blind about 18" tall.

I wonder what they are planning on doing in the 20 s this year, I know there's a new guy in town running it maybe he has a good thing up his sleeve.I guess only time will tell..They really shy away from the blinds alot and now you cant move away from them with no cover..

I have a house on the bay in Sebewaing and have been up there most weekends, including the youth hunt this past weekend. Water is up a solid 12 inches from last year. However, we always lose some water in the fall and last year, we had a a drop of at least 10" between youth hunt and regular opener. The good news is that we have had a lot of south winds (which pushes water out of the bay) and the levels have still been up. I'll call it "better"...but not "good" yet.

Really looking for updated posts on Fish point and the bay as the season progresses. I'm going to try to get there the end of the month or when the flight ducks start to move in. I'm taking my boy and wife and would like to have some good action to get them hooked. Thanks for the posts so far!!!
