Jason on T.V.

Recommended Posts

I was typing a paper last night with th T.V. on and i happened to glance up as Due North Outdoors was starting when I see this rig that looks just like Jason's truck hooked up to a crestliner Flag Ship, so I listen in for a minute and sure enough there is Jay out on this warm water discharge in the middle of January. I was cool to see you on the tube and you did a great job showing off the sponsors Abu, Vexlar, Minn Kota, ect... Great segment, are you doing anything with the Shura or In-Fisherman guys again this winter or any one else?

Jonah,

Thanks, that was a fun piece to film. Kind of crazy fishing largemouth in the middle of January in the center of North Dakota!

I have a couple things in the works for the year. I've invited Charlie Moore from ESPN's Beat Charlie Moore up here to take me on ice fishing, but he hasn't made good on the offer. Maybe it's too cold!

I went to college in Bismarck and yes that lake is quite fun for largemouth, especially late feb early march when they load up right at the warm water outlet, used to catch 4-6 lbers all day long from shore. It also has big crappies and pike. In the summer the water feels like a bathtub, not sure how things survive.

Hey Jason,

Was that you I saw on a vexilar promo tape, thought that was you all dressed up in Vexilar clothes fishing Gills on the tv when I went to Fleet the other day. I think Genz was also on the same show.

Yeah, that'd be me. We actually filmed that portion for their instructional DVD on a Park Rapids lake. It was a lot of fun and I got to use the FL-12 and FL-20 long before their release.

Paul, That's neat that you've been to Nelson. Ever caught a pike out there?

I had a big one on a powerworm that got me into the chains/log they had blocking in warm water outlet. I also lost about an 8 lb bass in that same tangled mess. Tough to control a big fish standing on shore. The fish are mutants in there thats for sure, they have a much longer growing season.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.

      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"

      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.

      pink and white usually rocks as does white.   yesturday I took the grandkids out and the gulp alive emerald shiner made lots of smiles.

      Nope...   320er...   Thanks for the info..

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.
