Jonah,

How would we contact your father? (I may be interested too...) You can post here or send to my email address (you should still have it).

Thanks!

I'd recommend Dick Winter. I've used his services on a couple of occasions. I don't know that you'll find anyone who knows that area better.

I would give Jason Durham a call. He has lived in the area his whole life, and he is a great guy to go fishing with.

Brad and Jonah (and everybody else that posts), it would be very helpful to us "out-of-towners" if you could some how post the phone number or email address or HOW to contact your recommended guides. Yellow Pages? They also work at ____ (i.e. Delaney's, Northern, etc.).

Anything would help.

THANKS!

Bob,

Hows it going? Jason has a flyer up in Delaneys, I am not sure what his contact info is off the top of my head here but another thing you could do is post to him on this website, he comes on this site all the time. So there is a start and Ii will see what other info I can get for you.

Thanks Brad. Will be there for a week (9/9-16) and am HOPING that I won't NEED a guide. wink.gif

But, if it's SLOW for the first few days, I may start looking for some help!! I'll keep Jason and Jonah's dad (Dick) in mind.

<29 days and counting!!>

i would defiantly recommend Jason Durham. He is a great guy and a phenominal fisherman, earlier this year he put me and my brother and cousin on five eyes all about 5 lbs in a very short period of time. He knows his stuff... Its a great experience that ill always remember

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
