Bass Fishing Guides

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.

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
