This Weekend - LOW

3 posts in this topic

I will be going to LOW for the first time this weekend. I will be staying at a resort about 3 miles up the Rainy River. I have GPS and a chip. Can anyone suggest some areas and tactics that could be effective this time of the year? We are targeting 'eyes.

Thanks,

JDM

Reading previous posts will tell you alot. Riggin' -n- Rocks seem to be the spots of choice lately. If its your first time, watch the weather closely. 3-4 footers come up in a matter of minutes. The rocks are a bit of a haul from Wheelers.

I went riggin out of Rocky Point on Sunday and pounded the eyes. Nothing real big but all nice eaters. We were about four or five miles north west of Gull Rock using SR5 & SR7 fire tiger and purpledecent shad raps. Waves were relentless and pretty big for my 16 foot boat to handle but we managed.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
