Jig colors

4 posts in this topic

Hey all, I'm headed out today, but need to make a "quick" stop at Gander Mt.... shocked.gifI was wondering what colors are working best for jigs. I'm thinking about fishing from around Beanie's up to Bayport. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Bob

Glow/Chartreuse Lindy MaxGaps with the red hooks are what I have been using with a variety of Gulp! all year.

pink and also orange have been good to me, and sometimes even colored hooks.

Thanks. I made it out, but didn't do well at all. I only got a couple white bass. I was switching jig colors and using fatheads and tried 3" Gulp chart minnows. I also did some trolling with no luck. I didn't see anyone else catching anything in the areas I was in. I keep reading the reports and it sounds like others are doing very well, so I'm not sure what I'm doing/not doing. It's very humbling, but still great to be on the river, especially without all the pleasure boaters!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
