Whitefish, Sand, Bowstring, Jessie

5 posts in this topic

We're coming up to the area in a week. We usually fish a small lake but the walleye population is very low. Which of these lakes would be best for numbers of walleyes and is there a presentation that works best? Thanks in advance.

Sand, Bowstring and Jessie would be my choice. all three have been doing good on all three of them with jig and minnow on the weed line being best

Jason, are the walleyes hitting on Jessie all day or just at night?

So, I was fishing Bowstring lake in early August and I caught NOTHING!! ONly Pikes!!

I was using leeches. Does the walleyes in that lake not like leeches or something and only minnows? What type of minnows are best?

Thanks

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
