I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.
Hi Cliff -
Thanks for the update on the hatch. Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start? Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin. Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.
Thanks for the info. I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic. I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after. I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.
J-Roy, I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.
Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
