Jiggin

2 posts in this topic

I will be up @ LOW the 10th-13th and I'm sure this topic has been touched a million or so times, but what is the recommended jig size(s) & color(s). Is the low water this year going to impact the fishing quite a bit? Whats everyones thought. I'm staying at borderview, so I hope I'm near the action!

Thanks

We'll be up at Borderveiw Oct.5-9. Honestly, when fishing in the river, you have to keep the jig as verticle as possible, so, if you have strong current, don't be affraid to go w/ a 5/8, 3/4, or even a 1 oz. jig. Keep it close to bottom, say 2-4 inches, bouncing, or lifting slowly, the current will dictate what size you'll need. Also, don't forget to pick up some stinger hooks, somedays you may need them for the short biters. Now, out on the lake, my steller jig for the last 20 years has been orange/chartruese, or orange/chartruese/pink bubble gum jigs, and gold jigs, once again, stingers are a good idea, especially in the fall on the lake, because the saugers are always pestering!!! Good luck, and I hope it helps, THE BUMBLE

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time
