What a great Weekend

7 posts in this topic

Hey all, my wife and I were invited up to my buddy's wife's parent's cabin/house on lake Jewitt this past weekend. This is about my 6th or 7th time out there since moving to this area in 2003. Jewitt has always been pretty good for us, but this weekend was probably the best outing I've had out there. It is a multi species catch every time I have been there, but she never lets us down! On Sat, we caught about 100 fish. They were mostly bass and crappies, but the occassional walleye came out as well. This lake will be some kind of a bass lake in about 5 to 10 years - the average size of the ones we have been pulling out are 16 - 17 inches. And man, what a crappie fishery! If I can't catch a mess of walleyes, I'll take a mess of crappies... And also, the sunnies were huge! I've never seen sunnies that big! Just tie on a white or green/yellow jig, put an orange or green twister tail on and drift over different areas while pulling those jigs - the fish are erywhere it seems!

Yesterday (Sun) we tried bottom bouncers in the morning on some edges and managed a 14 inch eye and a 12 inch eye. Hammered gold spinner and a crawler. We also saw one of the neighbors boat a 17.5 incher long linning a shad colored jointed shad rap. He was in about 19 ft of water on a break with some weeds when he caught it. This was more of a weekend for suntanning and tubing/skiiing, but man, what a great little fishing outing... I'm going out on a limb here, but pound for pound, Jewitt is the best MN lake I've fished since moving here (excluding Mille Lacs of course smile.gif). Also, I know this is a DL forum, but Jewitt is close to DL and I thought I'd just share about this lake some more because it is turning into one of my favorites!!

Thanks for the tip on this lake, I took my nephew fishing on monday night. We caught alot of nice size sunnys and some bass, not alot of boat traffic and it was bigger than I thought it would be. The fish seemed to be every where from 15ft. to 40ft. My nephew want's to catch some big northerns, any suggestions? Later INNKEEPER!

Long lake right by Vergus has some nice pike. Go to the far end of the lake (away from town). Pull spinners in deep water with a decent size sucker minnow and you should hook up with some good ones.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
