Depends on depth, current speed, etc.

What areas are you going to concentrate on?

Color - Chartreuse - all purpose, can't go wrong.

It all depends on the current go as small as you can as long as you keep in contact with the bottom.

I have private access from the saint croix riviera, just north of the kinni, so will be launching form there. I plan on using 6lb fireline along with my jigs.

Thanks for the chartreuse color, i figured something bright for the stained water.

      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?
