What's the hot lure this year on LOW?

Recommended Posts

I'm heading up for a week of fishing and would like to know what is working best. Gem-n-eye gold with pink glow eye, size etc...

I've seen alot of action on the gemini, but small glow green jigs and plain red hooks have also done well(some reports mention orange/bronze Chubby Darters). It depends on how active and/or aggressive the fish are, so far I've had better luck w/ small presentations; jiging them or retrieving them upwards sometimes 3-5 feet to get fish to bite. We fished Adrians this past weekend, very slow; the better fishing seemed to be deeper and towards the gap. I've heard reports from Zipple and what I can gather most did the same as I, pretty slow. FM's reports say that shallower (17ft) did well though, but I don't know what those dates were. Reports from Morris for the past weekend were similar to Adrians, slow to no fish. I'm heading back nxt Mon/Tues and hopefully the bite is better. Friends at the lake now say it has picked up some, 5 fish this morning if I remember correctly. Either way, good luck and hopefuly you get on some fish and LOW gets back to the way I remember it.

i was up at zipple this past weekend and we did great in 18ft of water and not so great in the shallow.the red plain hook worked well.but i mostly jig,i was using the red lingy rattle flyer that waoked for me.jigging is the key i think since the fish r not realy active at the momment.i did manage to catch a few on my dead stick tho.

I was on the phone with a buddy at Zippel every couple hours the other day and he told me light line, light bite, small lure, large hook. He also said it was perfect time for the plain red hook and sinker. 22ft of water west on bobber road to hooker street. YEAH, I said Hooker street. Two of them caught 24 fish throughout the day. Not bad for what I've been doing. BUT, his cousin was 100 yards away and didn't catch a fish all day!!

So, from what I've seen with my own eyes and what I've heard, I'm going to fish shallow in the portable and my girlfriend will stay and fish at the sleeper. One way or another we'll find a limit or two.

Best thing I can tell you is light tackle, light line, light rod, and electronics does the best.

Good luck! tongue.gif

The Swedish Pimple has always been my favorite for Walleyes, you cannot go wrong with it IMO. If I could pick one, thats it.

Talked to someone at Morris Point a couple hours ago and the word was DEEP. I'm not sure if they've moved out there yet, but......

eye dropper spoon. Hammered silver on back side kind of a hologram look on the front side, red treble. Use this and you will catch fish, maybe. It has worked for me now for the second year, never took it off last year. And like the posts above, single red hook and a split shot up about 3 inches.

Single best producing lure among our peeps (and myself) has been the red or green glow (white) Rattle Varmit.

When bite is light like it has been, smaller seems to be better.

Highs in the 30's forecast for the W/E. Should be good!

Red glow rattling varmit worked best for me last weekend. 1/8th ounce size. A green glow Gem-N-Eye under a bobber caught fish for me too.

chubby darter!!!! lol that's what everyone tells me.. I think its just like everyone tells you there biting on shiners... the reason they tell you that is so spend $6-$7 on a dozen.. I've had better luck walleye fishing anywhere on fatheads over any other minnow??

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
    • mrpike1973
      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
