Has anyone tried Shagawa lake this year? I'm going up Friday (18th) and could use some advise if you have any. Any and all tips are very appreciated. Thanks! grin.gif

Not too many good reports from Shagawa last weekend, but quite a few people coming to Ely today so may have a better report tomorrow evening.

Jim,

I saw 8-12 on reefs on another post.

That's the depth I heard about fish being caught, but it wasn't the best opener as far as numbers being caught (few and far between, some exceptions, but not many). I'll contact Jim at Shagawa Inn this morning and see if anything has changed.

I just talked to the old geezer (Jim) from Shagawa Inn today and he said that fishing has been pretty good lately. Lot of big Bass and smaller walleyes, up to 20 inches.

      I have had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      I use to love fishing out on Sherman's and I will have to say holy craap that is a long ride over from Rockys.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
