Jig Size?

3 posts in this topic

Hi Royal Dutchmen! This is Mark and Troy from New Ulm. Just wondering what the current conditions are on the Rainy? What size jigs? How are the boat landings? We'll see you in a week. Are shiners available?

Hey Guys!

Your ears must have been burning 'cause M & I were just talking about you yesterday. Is it just a week already!!

Water level is a good 1-1 1/2 feet higher this year and current is just a bit more.

I still hold firm to the 3/8 oz. jig.

The first shiner run had some good sized ones in it but they are not very hardy for live use.

Lucky's has frozen emeralds and live goldens & rainbows and plan to net from the next run of emeralds so should be a good mix for you when you get here.

Safe travels and M has a bear encounter story to share with you.

We used a lot of 3/4-1oz jigs in the river by Clementson and Frontier when anchored and 3/8-1/2 when slip drifting or down by the Gap and resorts down farther by the lake.

Pink, gold, glow white with orange or red eyes, chart and glow pink were best.

      with the current weather and the forcast for next week, we should have great ice by next weekend. be safe out there this weekend, ice just took hold on smaller lakes, the wind has kept things uneven.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
