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.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
