    NW Angle by Boat?


    Am considering a trip to the Angle for mid-June, and am reading up on the proposition. I understand the "over-land" route can be adventurous, and hard on the finish of a truck and/or boat.

    l know a boat trip is about 40 miles one-way. I downsized to a 165 Classic CS with a 70 hp 4-stroke last year. With gear and one other fisherman, I could travel 30+ mph in reasonable water. Wind and waves would certainly change the rate of travel/speed. If the winds are predominantly out of the west, there's probably some relief from the western shore of LOTW.

    Water travel would also avoid the customs hassle.

    Does anyone have any experience with the water route . . . like "scenic and safe" or "not bad" or "avoid at all costs"?

    I don't throw for muskies as much anymore . . . now that I'm older. We'd probably fish for smallies or walleyes most of the time, but would allocate parts of most days to muskies.

    Is the Canadian muskie opener productive . . . assuming "normal" weather this spring??

    Thanks in advance for any insights!
