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!

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
