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

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
