eyes??

I tried live bait rigging on Tetonka yesterday from 5 to 8 PM. Marked very few fish; used crawlers and got 2 of the biggest "bullies" I've ever caught, multiple sheepies, and 1 decent northern. It was a very pleasant evening on the water, and only a few other boats out there. I was surprised at the lack of "greeness", since in past years the scum would clog the eyes and reel up; and you'd have to wash it off your boat when you returned home.

I don't know why the lake is not green, but I like it. If the spraying of curly pond weed is the ansawer, great. If it was the lack of snow and the weeds grew all winter and died early better yet. Last night we went drifting on the pontoon. I started casting a rapala and caught 2 15" eyes up in 4' of water over green weeds. I will be back at it friday night. cool.gif

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
