Jig Tips

3 posts in this topic

What kind of jigs work well on Rainy (i.e. type, size, color, etc)? I understand it depends on the conditions, but I'd like to have a nice variety. After buying Cabelas out of crankbaits for last year's trip (and not using any of them)...I need to stock up on something for this year smile.gif. Any help would be appreciated...

Well I beleive in finding the 'eyes more than anything...once you find them the rest will fall into place. However, I have everything from 1/4 to 1/2 oz. Gold, chartreuse, and white are good colors for one coated jigs. However I like the two-three colored jigs. We were on a reef in Sand Bay last night that had a decent number of fish on it. The guy I was with had on a green jig, and I had on the blue/yellow/orange combo from Northland...and I was getting more bites. Could have been just dumb luck too! grin.gif

Anyhow Gold, Chartreuse, silver, yellow, and white are good colors for solid jigs.

As for Tri-colors and fire ball jigs...blue/yellow/orange, orange/yellow, Green/red/yellow, black/orange/green, and pink/yellow all have their place in my tackle box.

Hope that helps so you can go load up on goodies!! grin.gif

Thanks Lips...I agree you gotta find them, but you can never have enough tackle grin.gif. We'll swing in to 1 stop to pickup our bait and a nice assortment of Tri-colors...

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
