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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
