I'm gonna be making my first trip to LOW Feb 7-11. I'm pumped. We're gonna be making it out to the bait stores coming up here soon and I was wondering what colors are best. We'll probably get some gold buckshots but what else is a good choice. Thanks for any help.

1/8 oz. red glow rattlin' varmints and hammered gold angel eyes are two must haves.

Just a plain red hook. That all we have been using and have had great luck.

KDawg: Buckshot in the silver/bluish finish was good last week, plain red hook as stated above and pink/blue combinations were good as well. You can't go wrong with gold, and perch colored either. Glow demons in green/white, red/white and Lindy Frosties. I did pick up a couple on the JR Stop Sign as well, but it wasn't the hottest bait in the box this trip. Good luck hang on and post your results. Bill

Bill, where did you find the Stop Signs? Log Cabin? They didn't have them in yet when I was up in December.

I was at Log Cabin a week ago and he had Stop Signs right on the counter by the cash register.

I bought them at Log Cabin on 12/26. They were down to just a couple of the smaller size. Steve said he would be getting more in. I didn't get to stop in there last week. Bill

You can go to his web site and send him e-mail to save you some.

He did that for me in Dec. Good luck. I tryed them and could not get a bite at all. I will try again.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
