Best Bait now

6 posts in this topic

I am heading up this weekend with the family and just wanted to know if I need to waste my time trying to bring minnows or if I am better off with leeches & crawlers? I will be staying on and fishing mostly on Kab.

At this time of the year I will have all 3 in the boat. But once it is past =July 4 I will still have all 3 in the boat. now once it gets to August I then will only use all three...see the pattern here? Some times I like burgers sometimes I like weenies and sometimes I like pizza. I can only believe that fish may like a change once in a while. Also saugers tend to bite better on minnows. JMHO.

I'll be heading up this weekend and from what I've been hearing crawlers seems to be the ticket. But as was mentioned, I'll be bringing all three. You never know what the fish will want. Good luck to everyone! I hope to report good things when I get back. grin.gif

Fished the lakes from 6/15-6/21 and had great results on both leeches and crawlers. The walleyes would let us know what they preferred rather quickly. When trolling crankbaits we caught walleye,northern, and many small sauger in that 8-12" range. Those sauger were agressive on baits that were almost as big as them! Should be a good year class of "keeper" size sauger next year. Saw a crestliner from Wisconsin hit a rock shelf near the Namakan narrows. Sounded not too good but they kept going.

      Crazy birds!  Seen 2 jakes that would putt and cut like hens, a little deeper sound of course, and would talk back to me and Abi.  The Tom was absolutely quiet and disinterested.   Been along time since birds were this quiet.  Tough to make moves.  Probably just better to sit tight and wait.   Good luck.
