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.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
