Labor Day Week on Knife. Reports, Tips, Tricks or Tactics...

Recommended Posts

Casaloma

Hi every one. I'm hoping some of you have insight into the method of taking Lakers from Knife Lk. in the BW. Currently I am bringing walleye gear & adding weight ( no jokes please grin.gif ), flutter spoons, Superior casting spoons, & frozen Ciscoes.

Can anyone help me augment my tackle or help me narrow down my areas to search etc. Any & all info. would be helpful. I am open to email suggestions also for those who prefer that, finsnfriends@hotmail.com

Thanks! -CLoma

Randy, you up for the same bet as last year? First beverage at pool league to the man with the biggest Laker between now & then??

Surface Tension

I'd bring 2 oz bucktail jigs for vertical or slow drift fishing. Because your paddling and because you need to get deep with just weight I'd pick some spoons that don't need much speed to make them work like Suttons and Finns. With the spoons bring up to 3 oz beaded chain or bottom bouncers. Drag a slit bottom with those and jig the saddles, bars and steep walls.

I think I'd start looking in 50' of water then start getting deeper into 70'.

You might also want to consider a snap weight system...the same as we use on the Great Lakes. It consists of a snap device that clips on your line, ahead of the lure (try it 10 to 20 feet ahead of the lure, make sure you get the line behind the post so it doesn't slip off). You can then attach a weight to the snap swivel that hangs off the unit. Check Sportsman's Warehouse for a great selection of weights. Get a couple of each weight from 1 to 5 or 6 ounces (I know, it's a lot of weight to carry). But you will now have a set of "poor man's downriggers" for about $30 which work great with spoons, stickbaits, and some crankbaits. When you crank in the fish, you will need to stop as the weight comes in and unsnap it from your line. One guy fishing alone can easily do this. Just check out the snap weight kits (about $22) and augment with extra weights...you'll understand exactly how they work. I would suggest a 3 or 4 ounce weight about 15 feet ahead of a standard stick style Rapala. You'll have to work out what colors to bring. Weight will be dependent upon drift/troll speed and the depth you desire. You might also consider a heavier weight rod than a typical walleye rod for those 3-5 ounce weights. Good luck!

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
