What a great Weekend

Recommended Posts

Hey all, my wife and I were invited up to my buddy's wife's parent's cabin/house on lake Jewitt this past weekend. This is about my 6th or 7th time out there since moving to this area in 2003. Jewitt has always been pretty good for us, but this weekend was probably the best outing I've had out there. It is a multi species catch every time I have been there, but she never lets us down! On Sat, we caught about 100 fish. They were mostly bass and crappies, but the occassional walleye came out as well. This lake will be some kind of a bass lake in about 5 to 10 years - the average size of the ones we have been pulling out are 16 - 17 inches. And man, what a crappie fishery! If I can't catch a mess of walleyes, I'll take a mess of crappies... And also, the sunnies were huge! I've never seen sunnies that big! Just tie on a white or green/yellow jig, put an orange or green twister tail on and drift over different areas while pulling those jigs - the fish are erywhere it seems!

Yesterday (Sun) we tried bottom bouncers in the morning on some edges and managed a 14 inch eye and a 12 inch eye. Hammered gold spinner and a crawler. We also saw one of the neighbors boat a 17.5 incher long linning a shad colored jointed shad rap. He was in about 19 ft of water on a break with some weeds when he caught it. This was more of a weekend for suntanning and tubing/skiiing, but man, what a great little fishing outing... I'm going out on a limb here, but pound for pound, Jewitt is the best MN lake I've fished since moving here (excluding Mille Lacs of course smile.gif). Also, I know this is a DL forum, but Jewitt is close to DL and I thought I'd just share about this lake some more because it is turning into one of my favorites!!

Thanks for the tip on this lake, I took my nephew fishing on monday night. We caught alot of nice size sunnys and some bass, not alot of boat traffic and it was bigger than I thought it would be. The fish seemed to be every where from 15ft. to 40ft. My nephew want's to catch some big northerns, any suggestions? Later INNKEEPER!

Long lake right by Vergus has some nice pike. Go to the far end of the lake (away from town). Pull spinners in deep water with a decent size sucker minnow and you should hook up with some good ones.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
