Pitching Phelp's Half Faced jigs tipped with shiners or fatheads has always been my #1 choice for fishing cabbage.

Bottom bouncers and spinners with crawlers going at a decent clip works well too. Just try to keep the bouncer at a 45 degree angle to the boat.

I have been looking for those Phlep's Half face Jigs and can't find them. Where do they sell them? What size is the best?

Oh those Weed Walleyes! Love em'! I cast Half Face Jigs or Weedless Phelps Floaters in there and pull them out quite often.

Glassguy, if you want to give me a call with your address I can send you a catalog. Thanks for the interest.

I have had best luck trolling shad raps. It can get to be a hassel, but man is it fun. We caught 6 last weekend.

I forgot to mention... pulling shad raps seems like the last the last way to fish in the weeds... we ran them ABOVE the weeds and the fish would come up to get them.

While I was prefishing for the tourney last week I found an interesting pattern. I trolled a beatle spin with an white twister tail at 2.8 to 3 mph in 4 feet of water. It produced some very nice fish. Give it a try.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
