I have been fishing the rocks and it really has not mattered what the color has been. I have a half pink half gold Rock and Roll that has slaughtered them the past 2 weeks. My brother used green and caught tons, our buddy used gold with the same results.

Went out of Zipple, had GREAT luck on the gold jigs in 26 feet water, check out my story on other post ~ hope you are as fortunate!! When we fished, found they just look at the bait if we jigged, so turned off the Vexilars & left 'em sit in the hole ~ the bobbers didn't stay UP long! GL ~

Went out at Long Point on Saturday. Fishing was slow in the morning and early afternoon. Caught about 15 fish from 8-4 for two guys. Then at about 4 the fish put on the feedbag. Caught at least 35 fish from 4-6:30. Got our 8 keepers easy and threw back alot of fish that would have been keepers had we not already had our limit. All walleyes only caught two small saugers and no perch. No big fish either all keepers were between 15-18 inches. Fished in 25-27 feet moved around when it was slow. Marked fish all day but for most of the day fish would follow your jig up two sometimes three feet, move very quickly after it, and then would put on the brakes, look at it for 5 seconds and head back down. Caught a few here and there from 8-4 but like I said they started snappin at about 4. Ran out of bait otherwise we would have kept catching fish until dark. Wish we would have had one more scoop of minnows. Our mistake. Ice was in good shape and little wet and slushy in spots but could drive everywhere with a 4X4. Great trip and the weather was awesome.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      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.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      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.    Tight lines.

      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 .
