Jason on T.V.

6 posts in this topic

I was typing a paper last night with th T.V. on and i happened to glance up as Due North Outdoors was starting when I see this rig that looks just like Jason's truck hooked up to a crestliner Flag Ship, so I listen in for a minute and sure enough there is Jay out on this warm water discharge in the middle of January. I was cool to see you on the tube and you did a great job showing off the sponsors Abu, Vexlar, Minn Kota, ect... Great segment, are you doing anything with the Shura or In-Fisherman guys again this winter or any one else?

Jonah,

Thanks, that was a fun piece to film. Kind of crazy fishing largemouth in the middle of January in the center of North Dakota!

I have a couple things in the works for the year. I've invited Charlie Moore from ESPN's Beat Charlie Moore up here to take me on ice fishing, but he hasn't made good on the offer. Maybe it's too cold!

I went to college in Bismarck and yes that lake is quite fun for largemouth, especially late feb early march when they load up right at the warm water outlet, used to catch 4-6 lbers all day long from shore. It also has big crappies and pike. In the summer the water feels like a bathtub, not sure how things survive.

Hey Jason,

Was that you I saw on a vexilar promo tape, thought that was you all dressed up in Vexilar clothes fishing Gills on the tv when I went to Fleet the other day. I think Genz was also on the same show.

Yeah, that'd be me. We actually filmed that portion for their instructional DVD on a Park Rapids lake. It was a lot of fun and I got to use the FL-12 and FL-20 long before their release.

Paul, That's neat that you've been to Nelson. Ever caught a pike out there?

I had a big one on a powerworm that got me into the chains/log they had blocking in warm water outlet. I also lost about an 8 lb bass in that same tangled mess. Tough to control a big fish standing on shore. The fish are mutants in there thats for sure, they have a much longer growing season.

      Shagawa in Ely has a public beach.  That's the closest to Bear Head that I know of.  You'd have to launch a ways across the lake but you could just motor over to it.

      Sorry for late response.  The Gander in Eden Prairie had quite a few...

      Catfishing is pretty stable right now. The water is getting very low making the north end of Grand Forks begin to get sketchy for travel.  The lack of current has the fish spread out also.  Stay on the move and when you land of fish you should have no trouble catching them.  The best areas have been anywhere you can find more current than the surrounding area.  The middle of the River in mid range holes has also been a good place to look. 
        Bait has changed for me this week with frogs being the hands down number one so far.  Sucker and goldeye have been working too.  I still believe getting bait in front of the fish is is the key more than what the bait is but try it all.   Remember the I-29 Catfish Classic is in just 2 weeks.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.
