Gull River near Pilager

3 posts in this topic

Are river sunfish attracted to the same bait and presentation as lake sunfish? What adjustments should I be prepared to make as I am planning an outing soon.

I fished the river before the cold snap and used regular jigs and waxies, eurolarvae, etc and caught em. Havent been out there recently but they were biting real real light last time. Plenty of them around and had to weed through em. Best of luck.

spring bobber and small 1/64 oz jig with euros, fish 4 feet of bottom and keep inching up slowly with little flickering of rod tip. Most of the sun fish are striking when your bait is at a dead still.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
