I am going to be on vacation 6/2-6/8. Will be on the river near Brainerd and wondering if there are any certain techniques that work better than others. Just thinking about stocking up for the trip. Colors, jigs, rigs, artificials. Thanks for any advice. Mike

I like jigs and twister tails. Leeches and minnows work well on the jigs too. Rapalas and spinnerbaits work good as well for all species. For colors, white, chartreuse, and natural colors (crayfish) have always worked well for me. Watch for current breaks....there's almost always fish nearby. Good luck.

Thanks Tim, so pretty much like I do on the river down here. I appreciate the help, and really looking forward to the trip.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
