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.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
