Navigator Uses Plastics and Scores.

6 posts in this topic

Hi,
here are some pictures of Navigator and Randy. They were using CatchN Tackle's plastics and Jigs on the fish they caught.

I'll post the pics and let Navigator tell the story when he sees this.

Ahhhh...brings back memories of a 1,2,3 knock-out punch on the river. Compliments of Randy Halverson and Catch-n Tackle Company's Ring-N tube. What I mean is, Randy had some "honey holes" that were holding fish and this was my first experience using this product. As you can see, Randy's spots were loaded with fish and the new product worked wonderfully. I think the "bulky" size of the tubes helped fish locate and inhale the jig in that dingy water.

It was fun and I recommend using BIG plastics Now on the river. I think the fish agree. Nav

I was in a hurry this morning and didn't get a chance to talk about the areas we were fishing....don't worry Randy, the honey holes are safe. We were hitting spots with high current flow, whether it was a bar on an outside river bend or where another river joins the main channel. The fish were definitely looking to feed.

We caught a few walleyes trolling plugs in 6 to 8' of water along rip rap shorelines. The majority of the fish came from pitching plastics and these fish were in less than 4' of water.

A key to remember with river fishing....move alot until you put together a pattern for the day. I've had lot's and lot's of people in my boat over the years and that's the one thing I stress more than anything else...move often and experiment with presentations. Nav

Hey Nav,

Trolling Plugs? What's a plug? AKA Crank Bait? Just curious. Been at this fishing game for years and everyday I learn something new.

Gotta love that slang...ear plugs...ummm...nose plugs...yep you're right!! Crank baits. I use everything from long stick baits that wobble to tight running shad raps to my all-time fav....spoonplugs. AND when I'm on the river, I troll them things. Nav

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
