pumpin da hole.

9 posts in this topic

hole pumpin, pumpin da hole....

who pumps the water up in down in the hole with a scooper or other item in order to get the bobber moving up & down? like a lazy slow jigging action?

who knows what I'm talkin bout?

sneaky jig, excellent for lite bite.... bobber travels down with the water in the hole, water comes back up but bobber stays down cause wally got yer hook in his mouth......

anyone?

anyone else do this? anyone got a good name for it?

I often call it "the Wiskow flush" cause a guy I used to fish with a lot who's last name was Wiskow used to do it prety much all day, he just had to have the water bouncing in all them holes all day.

We call it: "Bibbeling your bobber", and we do it a little differently. We just grab the line and do a bit of a slow, upward jig, then set it back down so the minnow flutters. Some times when you set the bobber on the water she just keeps on a-going.

we actually talked about rigging up a mechanical hole pumper. drill one extra hole in the house & have something like a toilet plunger working up & down like a piston in a cylinder to make for some winter time walleye chop.

I think I saw such a device powered by AA batteries, was used for keeping holes free of ice. It sat on the edge of the hole and pumped water. Might work for what your thinkin'...I've never owned or used one though.

Believe it or not I actually use an auto jigger. I bought it at the sportsmans show a couple years back. It runs off a 12 volt like a locator uses. I love it. It doesn't always work the best though because it usses a magnet system and sometimes my bobber will go down and it will jig at the same time, so I just keep a close eye on it and pull it off when I get a hit. It is quite the conversation piece when theres visitors. It also alows me to hold my beverage while still jigging. Always a plus!! wink.gif

      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.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
