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.

      I see on the cam that Joe's gate is open, but the access is pretty trashed with cones out front. Is it still driveable?

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.
