powerbait question

2 posts in this topic

has anyone fished powerbait with a plain jig head? covering the head if needed to fish it at mid depths without the interference of a split shot to spook the fish. When fishing it suspended with a slit shot it floats up toward the line and was wondering if anyone had tried this.

That's the tactic I'm going to try next time I get to Foster's. I figured I'd use a painted jig, leave the head exposed and cover the hook with a tapered gob of powerbait to mimic the shape of a minnow. I'd have done it last weekend, but I forgot my powerbait in the truck and it would have been frozen solid anyway.

I wish they made sinking powerbait. If they do make it, I can't find it anyplace.

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
