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.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?
