West Jefferson (little jeff) Info

8 posts in this topic

Was going to head out to little jefferson this weekend. Does anyone know if they are catching anything out there? Folks have a cabin there but have not ice fished it for 4 years.

If you really like northerns come on out. I've lived on the lake for 5 years now. Its not my first choice to fish on. People are catching some ok sunfish and a few crappies, but don't expect much. Bring a few friends, 6 or 7 tip ups, and on a good day you will have non stop northern action.

Hey MankatoFlyer, if our lake busts on Friday we might try West Jeff for some pike. Any spots to look out for if I drive and any tips on location?

Flyer,

I was going to ask the same thing (except I will not be driving out)and where my dad should put his big house. I just am hoping to get the kid to catch some fish and I will try for hammer handles.

I have family coming up to do a little fishing. They would be very excited if they could catch some pike. Any advice where to start on this lake?

BezD40,

I have caught pike all over out there and I know I can catch them right off the third point where there is a big A frame. That is my folks place. When I fished for them I just set up over the deep water and kept the bait about 5' up from the bottom.

Froggy.

      Was wondering what the ice conditions are after the rain on Monday?

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
