Has anyone had any luck with hotheads. This has been my jig of choice for the last couple years, and never had any complaints.

Thanks for the reply Jigglestick, I have only fished URL for the last couple years and have no complaints about driving 100 miles to enjoy the atmosphere. Have never had a chance to stop in at WW and enjoy the drinks with any of you guys, but hope to in the future, as will be down to put house out and fish. We store house at Hillmans--best people ever. Well enough for now.

I'm partial to Phelps cause Jack and Denny and Matt hung with this town after the walleyes collapsed. Sometimes they rented a house but didn't even bring their rods. smile.gif Tonight their "Glo tubes" or "Glo Hooks", (what ever they call it) in white kicked butt.

Buddah, what are Hillmans rates for storing a fish house over the summer??
Do you know if there are other resorts or places that store houses??

Kelly - Yes, we did hang with Waskish through the good and the bad. Some of the bad was pretty bad. Those fish houses can get kinda scary when you don't have a rod in one hand to slow you down from grabbing for the cans more often.We won't start on that subject again. I know my dad first started selling Shorty Hillman tackle about twenty-five years ago. I am not sure which you were using, but the Glow Tubes can be used with hooks,jigs, or whatever. The Glow Hooks come with Glow Tubes on them. They both work great.Jigglestick, I am glad to hear you are trying the Tick Jig. Hope to see you up there sometime.Possibly at WW for a cocktail.

Buddah:

I too use hotheads, and have enjoyed very good success with them as an anchor jig for crappie minnows. Is this how you use them, or do you actually jig with them? I have thought of doing so, with the horizontalaspect of the jig, but haven't gotten around to it yet...

Stoneeyes317 I also use them as anchors for crappie minnows on one line and jig with the other, using angel eyes or small grub jigs of all different colors.

I am anticipating the bite picking up. Sounds like guys are getting limits while others are getting skunked. Surely worth the gamble in my eyes!

Do you know if you guys have a good supply of these jigs and glow hooks at S&W in Brainerd.

emtbucket - I don't believe S&W has them. I know that Koep's has the Glow Tubes that you can put on hooks.Tell Cliff at S&W to give me a call to get some in. If he is still around anyway. I haven't talked to him since last spring. You can get them many other places from Bemidji and up north. Thanks.

Another that we've been getting good reports back from has been the 1/8 Glow Devil (blue, red, pink & white and red & yellow), as well as the Fat Fry's tipped with a minnow.

I have been using the angeleyes (pink&white)its been doing pretty well.

Is the Angeleye the same as the AngeleyeJR. or is the Jr. a smaller lure????
Thanks and Good Luck

Yes there is a difference. The Angeleyes are pretty big... I'd say 2 1/2" long??? The JR's are roughly an inch shorter. My guesstimates could be way off.... just to lazy to go look right now.

The Angel Eye Jr's are smaller than the regular Angel Eyes (and yes, the pink and white as well as the red have been producing). Just looked on the rack on the wall and measured them, the Jr. is about 1 1/2"~they come 12 on a card (although we do sell them individually), the regular Angel Eyes are six on a card. The Glow Devils come either 1/4 or 1/8 oz.

tulikow, I use them all the time. I have 4 rods rigged right now and two of them have Demons. Put some Spikes, Waxies or eurolarve on them. In my opinion there the best jigs.

I agree with Kidd.....I only use Demon jigs when I go up there. Get the big ones...I get better hook-ups with them. I may catch a few fish on other jigs and spoons...but by far the Demon jigs is my favorite. Use a crappie minnow hooked through the back.

Drake,
I ordered some Angel Eye Jr's off the website (twice - one time by phone) and didn't see any sign on there of the full size Angel Eye, but I think I got the full size ones. Are those measurements including the hook? I couldn't figure out how you guys were catching crappies on such a big lure. I went back and they still just show two different cards of Jr's - all glow and a mixed card. Not a major problem cuz they make a nice walleye lure, but I would like to get the Jr's before I make the trek to Red.

salger65,

If there are 12 on the card then you got the Jr.'s, if there are only 6 then you got the full size. Yes, you do catch URL crappies on walleye jigs. The crappies are that big! It's like lipping a largemouth bass.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald

      Same for me on Green by Princeton once it got dark the fish started biting. I was marking them and only had 4 bites while the sun was up.
