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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
