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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
