Anyone know any guides that are very good at the pig and jig? I would like to learn more about this technique and am willing to take a trip out on a lake...However is it a little late in the season for this technique?

No way, I catch fish on a jig&pig the entire season. Fall can be exceptionally good for largemouths. Fishing around wood and remaining green weeds in fall have produced some of my biggest catches. Blach and blue have always been my go to colors. My 2cents. Good luck, Mike

Craigums... If your willing to take a little drive.. give Wayne Ek.. of Agape Guides a call...the dude is a great guy, a great teacher and willing to share his love of fishing! And a durn good stick on a jig pig! Wayne is over in the Alex area and will not only teach you how to toss a jig, but probably stick you on a few nice fish in the process!

Sheeesh, black and blue, in the fall? Yeah, I tell all of my friends that, when I show up black and blue......"I Fell" Both of these guys know the fish they are after and do a good job of putting them in the boat.

Sorry Mike, Couldn't resist!~

I really only throw a couple of colors of Jig-Pig... I would say I throw some shade of Pumpkin about 70& of the time.. the other 30% is Black Blue... But at all times, I have a Jig tied on.. from ice out(legally) till ice on!

I second that. No doubt, Wayne is one of the best.

Thanks for the kind words guy's. I'm with Mr. D. one of the pumpkin colors most of the time and the next choice is Black/Brown/Amber (Stike King's No.23) then Black/Blue. Almost time for the Fall Crawl to start!

If you want to fish Minnetonka, give Greg a call at Minnetonka Outdoors. He knows all the good spots on that lake.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
