Tactics for next week?

6 posts in this topic

My sons and I will will be making our maiden URL voyage next week. We're newbies but have had a bit of advice come our way. For those with much more URL knowledge, I wanted to bounce the following plan off of you. We're going to try to start fishing walleyes near the North River Crib Cluster and move along that break south. I think we'll try Lindy rigs and move to spinners and/or jigs if we fail miserably....finally trying Rapalas and speed trolling. Just curious if gold and chartreuse are still the dominant colors for jigs and spinners?

Any advice would be appreciated! smirk.gif

Make sure to try some vertical jigging with gold, chartruse and pink jigs.

Thanks for the advice Jon....I'm hoping for a little break in the wind, etc....does our location seem about right? We may end up trying the river if things are bouncy.....I like my lunch! grin.gif

My dad, brother, and myself are also going to be up there for the first time on open water this weekend. Where are you staying? Maybe we could swap reports after the first day of fishing. We're staying at Big Bog.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
