Mostly depends on how precise you are with boat controll. 1/4 to 3/8 should do you just fine. 1/4 oz if you are drifting and 3/8 oz if you are anchored.

Good Luck

Like Mike said grin.gif 1/4 oz works best on MN side but I found a 5/16 to be better on the WI side. Current seam was just a hair faster. Best color jighead for me was green and chartreuse. You don't need to be exactly vertical as the fish are just smacking baits right now. Not subtle at all.

Me and a buddy were down sat. and sun. Sat. we caught over 80 saugers and wallys even with the snow and all the boats. nothing big as wallys go but did get a 30.1lb flat head. Sun not as good fish were alot shallower most fish came from less then 10 FOW . Charchruse was our best with a motor oil and charchruse tail ring worm. But took 2/3 the worm off for the lite biters.

God Bless

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
